NEW YORK (June 15, 2021) – The Professional Fighters League (PFL), the fastest growing and most innovative sports league, today announced the renewal of its partnership with the Air Force Reserve.
Dedicated to providing MMA fans with premium access and content, PFL will introduce a custom broadcast feature on ESPN – “Air Force Prep Point” – which will give a look into the warmup room pre-fight as the athletes prepare for their moment in the cage. Additionally, Air Force Reserve logos will be featured in and around the cage, and the partnership will include an integrated mix of assets including national broadcast, social and digital amplification.
“Professional Fighters League is proud to extend our partnership with the Air Force Reserve and provide them with a platform to reach the millions of MMA fans across the United States,” said PFL CEO, Peter Murray. “PFL is steadfast in its dedication to supporting our military and veterans and look forward to working together throughout the 2021 season.”
