FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Lewiston, Maine (June 6, 2016) – Earlier today, executives at New England Fights (NEF) announced that the promotion had signed an exclusive deal with FloSports to broadcast the fight promotion’s next event, “NEF 24: PROMISED LAND,” on June 18, 2016 from the Androscoggin Bank Colisée. NEF joins other major regional promotions like Badbeat, Valor Fights, and BAMMA USA on FloSport’s mixed-martial-arts network FloCombat. Fans will be able to watch “NEF 24” live, and then archived, by signing up for a FloPRO subscription at FloCombat.com.
“We’ve had so many broadcast deals offered over the years that we turned down,” said NEF promoter Nick DiSalvo, “but this was the one that just fit us perfectly. Our number-one goal has always been to put the NEF signed athletes in front of the largest crowd possible, and that can’t be done on some obscure cable network that only a handful of people have access to. Streaming is quickly outpacing traditional television, especially in our demographic. Our research shows that a whopping 92% of NEF fans viewing our videos are now doing so on mobile devices. The deal with FloSports just made so much sense in that respect, and now the NEF fighters will be in front of a global audience.”
NEF returns to the Androscoggin Bank Colisée in Lewiston, Maine on June 18, 2016 with “NEF 24: PROMISED LAND.” Tickets for “NEF 24” start at just $25 and are on sale now at www.TheColisee.com or by calling the Colisée box office at 207.783.2009 x 525.
