FSN, Arena Football League Announce Carriage Deal

Dec 16, 2004  •  Post A Comment

Fox Sports Networks and the Arena Football League reached a multiyear agreement Thursday to carry regular-season games on 11 of FSN’s owned and affiliated regional sports networks.

Most of the FSN regional telecasts will take place on Fridays and Saturdays. The telecasts are in addition to the AFL’s exclusive Sunday afternoon national window on NBC. Under the agreement, FSN is responsible for producing the game telecasts, and the AFL and FSN will work together to sell advertising inventory.

Once FSN is reimbursed for its production costs the two organizations will share ad revenue. In addition, FSN will continue producing and televising “AFL Weekly,” a magazine program that premiered on the Fox Sports Networks last season.
