FEMALE PRESENTERS TAKE THE LEAD ACROSS THE FOX LEAGUE WEEK

FIRST ALL FEMALE SPORTS PANEL SHOW ‘LEAGUE LIFE’ NEW GAME DAY INNOVATIONS

FOX LEAGUE SWITCHES ON FEBRUARY 20, 2017

FOX SPORTS, exclusively on Foxtel, is giving Rugby League the coverage it deserves in 2017. Every game of every round, plus every final in September LIVE, ad-break free during play and in HD all on a dedicated 24/7 Rugby League channel, ‘FOX LEAGUE’.
Launched tonight at Birchgrove Oval in Balmain, the spiritual birthplace of Rugby League in Australia, FOX LEAGUE will honour the origins of the game and champion and celebrate Rugby League like no one else.

Switching on February 20, channel FOX SPORTS 502 will become FOX LEAGUE with all the shows firing up from February 27 before Round 1 kicks off on March 2. FOX LEAGUE will give fans what they have been asking for – every game, every round live, guided by the best commentary team in the business, on their very own channel that never switches off.

Joining the FOX family in 2017 is the highly sought-after sports presenter, Yvonne Sampson, who will lead a new era for Rugby League coverage alongside one of Australia’s brightest broadcasters, Matty Johns.

Other new faces joining the network, as it gears up for its biggest and best year ever, is recently retired Broncos great, Justin Hodges, former half- back star, Brett Finch and popular sports presenter Hannah Hollis. Fans will see more of Corey Parker and Mick Ennis plus hear from new match- day caller, Brenton Speed.

Sharing play-by-play commentary duties with Speed is Warren Smith and Andrew Voss.

Hodges, Parker and Sampson join Mal Meninga, Kevin Walters, Ben Ikin and Gorden Tallis to lead the strongest Queensland contingent ever assembled at FOX SPORTS.

In 2017, fans will hear from more of the most respected female sports presenters in the country with Sampson joined by Hollis, Lara Pitt, Megan Barnard, Tara Rushton and Jess Yates to feature prominently across the week’s programming.

The LIVE on-field action starts earlier in the week this season, with the new Thursday night match hosted by Sampson, Johns and a bumper panel of experts weekly from 7.00pm EDT.

Then it’s a Friday double-header, with the new 6pm match only on FOX LEAGUE, before a massive Super Saturday EXCLUSIVE triple-header. FOX LEAGUE will be the only place to watch both Sunday matches LIVE, wrapping up the weekend’s action.

And it gets better. Across the week, six new magazine shows will keep fans entertained, informed and across all Rugby League’s big issues. There will be something for everyone - more fun and more debate, bringing fans even closer to the game they love.

New to the FOX LEAGUE Lab is the Whizz-kid, whose razor sharp brain and home-made algorithms correctly predicted 80 per cent of last season’s results. New additions to FOX SPORTS’ in-broadcast Augmented Reality, will see a new virtual tackle marker, keeping track of the tackle-count as well as showing subscribers exactly where it took place. And shedding new light on what was a recurring point of contention last year, a new virtual 10-metre line will make it clearer for fans to know when refs are getting it right.

FOX SPORTS CEO, Patrick Delany, said:

“This is a game changing day for NRL. We’ve listened to fans and responded to their desire to see their game celebrated and enshrined in a place all of its own. That new place is FOX LEAGUE. We are going to make what is already awesome, more awesome!

“We will share our love of the game with fans around the country delivering the best coverage to more fans, in more ways than ever before.

“Your game, your team and now your channel. We will have double, triple, double live coverage from Friday to Sunday, plus the best Thursday night line-up kicking off the round’s action.

“With all the live broadcasts, all the shows – we will do what no one else can. It’s a massive investment for us but we are committed to making our coverage of the game even more awesome.”

FOX SPORTS Head of Television, Steve Crawley, said:

“FOX LEAGUE will put Rugby League onto the world map of sports broadcasting. It will be like no other and nothing Australian sports fans have ever experienced.

“We have an army of producers charging the channel and we have assembled the biggest, and best, line-up of talent possible. This channel has it all and we can’t wait for fans to experience it.”

Foxsports.com.au will be the ultimate online destination with all the news, videos, stats and analysis plus the most comprehensive live Match Centres in the game and NRL SuperCoach. Australia’s only dedicated 24/7 sports news channel, FOX SPORTS News 500 will have nightly dedicated bulletins with the return of NRL Tonight plus extensive league coverage across the day.

Multi Channel Network (MCN) today announced the signing of over 20 partnerships for FOX SPORTS’ new dedicated 24/7 Rugby League channel, FOX LEAGUE.

FOX SPORTS Channel 502 will become FOX LEAGUE today with all the shows firing up from 27 February, before Round One of the season kicks off on 2 March. The new channel allows audiences to experience every game, every round live, all guided by the best commentary team in the business on their very own channel, which never switches off.

Thanks to the variety of opportunities available with the 24/7 FOX LEAGUE channel, MCN can connect brands at any level with the NRL audience – from primary spot packages to small and large scale integration.

MCN has secured a series of key brands for the code’s new partner naming rights for the 2017 season including; Schick Hydro for Thursday night, Bundaberg Rum for Super Saturday, and KFC on Sunday.

Other key partners include: Mazda, Gillette, Hino Australia, TAB, Ultra Tune, BET365, Isuzu Utes; plus long-term broadcast partners Bunnings and Harvey Norman.

FOX SPORTS CEO, Patrick Delany, said:

“The launch of ‘every game live’ for the 2016 NRL premiership on FOX SPORTS was exceptionally well received by fans last year. Ratings were up double digits year-on-year and the content drove FOX SPORTS’ brand score to record levels. Fans engaged with our League coverage like never before.

“In 2017 the launch of FOX LEAGUE, with all its new shows and the freshest sports team on TV, will take that offering to a whole new level. There is something for everyone – the fanatic, fan or follower. We have experience in creating single sport media platforms with X Factor to drive engagement across TV, web and apps which will make FOX LEAGUE truly stand-out as something new and fresh in Australia. Fans will love FOX LEAGUE and the ability to immerse themselves in everything that comes with it, making it a unique opportunity for advertisers and sponsors.”

MCN national sports sales director, Martin Medcraf, said the channel launch was a landmark moment for the game and as such, it’s no surprise they’ve seen huge appetite from advertisers already.

“Live sport continues to be attractive to brands looking to align with live, premium, engaging content. Therefore, in much the same way advertisers were excited for the launch of the AFL FOX FOOTY channel in 2012, they are excited about the new partnerships available with FOX LEAGUE and its premium broadcast and digital NRL content on foxsports.com.au.

“This channel is yet another example of how FOX SPORTS’ is innovating sports broadcasting, providing the market with extensive cross-platform and LIVE NRL offerings, plus most importantly, delivering high performance partnership opportunities with deeper and richer integration than ever before. Combine this with the hugely successful year in 2016 with live FOX SPORTS NRL ratings up 15 per cent and it’s undoubtedly a great time to be a part of the game.

“We’re thrilled to have the support of our partners join us in this new era of FOX SPORTS NRL coverage, and look forward to continuing our proud history of creating client partnerships that deliver commercial outcomes for brands with this channel in 2017.”

Patrick Delany likens watching rugby league on TV and attending an NRL match to “going to a party”, which is in stark contrast to his opinion on what AFL fans experience.

The Fox Sports chief executive will on Monday see more than 12 months of work come to fruition when the wholly-rugby league dedicated Fox League channel launches, the second sport-specific channel the pay-television operator has following Fox Footy for AFL fans.

Fox League & Briggs Team Up To Launch Brand New Title Track 'Here’

New anthem for the NRL season

Buy or stream the track now

FOX LEAGUE has teamed up with Indigenous rapper and CEO of Bad Apples Music, BRIGGS, to create the channel’s new anthem for the 2017 NRL season, ‘Here’, featuring Caiti Baker.

The signature track is a bold tune that celebrates the game of Rugby League, and is available now through all digital platforms. The track was released ahead of next week’s Indigenous Round.

“FOX LEAGUE is a brand-new channel that’s young, fresh, and inclusive to all NRL fans. In developing the signature theme tune, we were looking to collaborate with an artist that understood what we were trying to create; a track that reflected the values of the channel, and championed every aspect of the game.

“BRIGGS was the perfect choice. After a day in the recording studio at Uncanny Valley, he and his team emerged with a track that perfectly encapsulated the attitude of the new channel,” said FOX SPORTS’ Group Creative Director, Guy Sawrey-Cookson.

“I created this track as the theme for the FOX LEAGUE channel – the song reflects the journey of the Indigenous players – who give so much excitement and leadership to the sport and community week in and week out, not just the specific Indigenous round,” said BRIGGS.

BRIGGS wrote the lyrics to the new title track and collaborated with vocalist Caiti Baker to record the song. “Here” will also be available in a new music video, directed and produced by the FOX SPORTS creative team. The cover artwork for the single was designed by Indigenous artist Reko Rennie.

The track is available now through all digital platforms and BRIGGS will also perform the song live at the Suncorp double-header as part of the NRL Indigenous Round on Saturday 13 May.
