Major League Wrestling have had a partnership with beIN Sports, America’s leading sports and entertainment group, since 2018. Today, both companies have announced that they have renewed their relationship, meaning that MLW will continue to air their flagship show, Fusion, across the country via cable and satellite.
The deal is extremely beneficial to both companies. The hybrid-wrestling promotion was previously one of the highest-rated programs airing on the sports network, and it’s understandable that beIN Sports would want to continue their relationship with MLW with that in mind.
For MLW, meanwhile, being on beIN Sports allows them not just to spread their reach across America, but internationally too, as beIN Sports airs across 5 continents, 43 countries, in 9 different languages and with over 55 million subscribers worldwide. With the company set to relaunch Fusion imminently after a break due to the pandemic, MLW will want to hit the ground running and make as big an impact as possible on as many viewers as possible.
MLW CEO Court Bauer said:
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.
This is not the only exciting development for MLW in recent months. What with striking a deal to air Fusion in the UK and Ireland, the announcement of major new signings, and joining forces with IWA Puerto Rico, MLW has certainly done a great job of building excitement and anticipation for the relaunch of Fusion. But when is it coming back? Well, it looks like we won’t have long to wait to find out…
