FloSports inked a deal to bring The Rugby Channel under its umbrella from Rugby International Marketing. The deal immediately awards FloSports the rights to all matches previously under The Rugby Channel and brings 51 new competitions annually to FloRugby.com. FloSports also announced that World Rugby Hall of Famer Phaidra Knight will join FloRugby as a regular contributor, providing live commentary, columns, training and technique videos, and other content to the site. In addition, FloRugby will provide extended exclusive access to USA Rugby, giving fans all new ways to keep up with their favorite players and teams.

“Rugby is one of the fastest-growing sports in America, and this deal allows us to elevate the coverage of the sport to new heights,” FloSports co-founder and COO Mark Floreani said. “We want to provide fans a platform to connect with and follow their favorite athletes and teams, and to discover more live rugby than they’ve ever had access to. This is an exciting day for rugby fans.”
