Multi-Year Partnership Connects Team with Central Florida Fan BaseThe Tampa Bay Buccaneers and WOFL-TV/FOX 35 Orlando announced today a new multi-year media rights agreement that will make the station Central Florida’s official television partner of the Buccaneers.
Under the agreement, FOX 35 will broadcast Tampa Bay’s preseason games, as well as work throughout the year to create the ultimate viewer experience for the region’s NFL fans, providing expanded coverage and connecting Central Florida to the Buccaneers in an unparalleled fashion.
“This new partnership with FOX 35 will provide our fans in the Orlando area with unprecedented coverage of the Buccaneers throughout the year and will play a pivotal role in our continuing efforts to engage the entire Central Florida market. This is an exciting time for our organization and we look forward to working with FOX 35 to bring our fans in the Orlando market closer to our players and coaches than ever before,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford.
In addition, FOX 35 will air unique team-produced Buccaneers content on a weekly 30-minute show and provide the Buccaneers an increased promotional presence to enhance the franchise’s brand in the Orlando market.
“Since we are the official NFC Licensee in the Orlando DMA, it makes sense to forge an alignment with the designated NFL home team of choice. A preseason partnership with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will complement our regular-season NFL airings for viewers to enjoy year-round,” said WOFL/WRBW Vice President and General Manager Allyson Meyers.
WOFL and WRBW are part of the Fox Television Stations, one of the nation's largest owned-and-operated network broadcast groups, comprising 28 stations in 17 markets and covering over 37% of U.S. television homes. This includes 7 duopolies in the top 10 markets: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Houston; as well as duopolies in Minneapolis, Phoenix, Orlando and Charlotte.
