What is FloRugby?
FloSports launched FloRugby in early 2017 to provide comprehensive rugby coverage across all levels of the sport with a focus on North American rugby. Under the direction of senior editor Alex Goff, FloRugby offers live streams of top high school, college, club, and international rugby competitions, as well as news and analysis, high school and college team and player rankings, and more.
How will this grow the game of rugby?
There has never been more live rugby coverage across all levels in the U.S. than there is now because of this deal. FloRugby will feature more than 100 days of live rugby coverage year-round, and this includes international rugby competitions as well.
In addition, FloRugby will produce original content with current and former stars, such as:
- World Rugby Hall of Famer Phaidra Knight
- Men’s Eagle Mike Te’o
- Current Women’s 7s star Kelsi Stockert
- Team USA Olympian Joanne Fa’avesi
- Former USA U19 team captain and current San Diego Legion Cam Dolan
- Former USA U20 team captain and MVP Hanco Germishuys
- Powerful hooker and current Austin Elite-front rower Peter Malcolm
- Rudy Scholz Award winner, USA Eagle, and current Glendale Raptor Bryce Campbell
What does a PRO subscription on FloRugby mean?
A PRO subscription is how FloSports refers to its subscription level. PRO subscribers (either monthly or yearly) on FloRugby.com gain access to premium content not only on FloRugby.com but also on every other site in the FloSports network. This includes access to more than 10,000 live sports events per year, original documentaries, rankings, technique and training videos, and more.
No. As part of the acquisition, The Rugby Channel subscribers will soon have their monthly or yearly subscriptions automatically transferred to the equivalent FloRugby PRO subscription at no cost. Subscribers will continue to pay their current rates. Until then, all upcoming matches scheduled to be broadcast on The Rugby Channel will continue to be available on TheRugbyChannel.tv, as well as on FloRugby.com.
