Earlier this morning, Forbes broke the news in an exclusive report that MLW and beIN Sports have reached a new deal. MLW will continue airing its flagship, MLW FUSION, on Saturday nights at 10 PM EST in the USA. “We are excited to continue to be a cornerstone of beIN Sports’ portfolio of world-class sports content. beIN’s dual-language reach will help further entrench MLW as a thriving sports league,” Court Bauer, CEO of MLW, said.
Forbes also reveals that the beIN deal is just one of a series of deals set to be announced by Court Bauer. The league is also in talks with some of cable television’s biggest networks about new programming. The goal for the league is to expand its offerings beyond beIN SPORTS and continue to grow viewers and rights fees across multiple networks, a model that has led to lucrative contracts for WWE and UFC.
“MLW is focused on its value in this space as well as in the nonlinear streaming realm. This deal and other on-going conversations reflect our goal to be a versatile sports league that is plug and play for our partners on cable and streaming, “added Bauer.
In addition to beIN Sports, MLW also airs on DAZN and fubo Sports Network in the United States and in over 20 countries abroad.
