ECHL and FloSports Announce Multi-Year Agreement

The ECHL and FloSports have announced a multi-year extension to extend the media partnership between the two sides. The ECHL and FloHockey partnered in September 2020 as FloSports expanded into professional hockey. FloHockey has been the exclusive broadcast partner of the ECHL for the last three seasons, streaming more than 1,000 ECHL games each season. The deal comes after a record-breaking season for FloHockey, which drove over 235 minutes of live hockey to four million fans over the course of the 2023-24 season, including 23 million impressions and 13 million video views across all of FloHockey’s social media channels. Flo’s most-watched game of the season came on April 6th in a game between the Worcester Railers and Maine Mariners, reaching 186,000 views, which was also the most-viewed game in FloHockey History.

FloHockey has become the home of live ECHL hockey, and this partnership extension allows our fans to see every single game throughout the Season,” said ECHL Commissioner Ryan Crelin.  “FloHockey continues to innovate the product, as our game statistics our now integrated into the platform, along with being available on a variety of mobile and OTT platforms, allowing fans to catch ECHL action at home or on the move.”

“The ECHL is a flagship league within the FloHockey ecosystem that has experienced exponential growth over the last three years on our platform. We’re going to continue to build around it with an elite on-ice streaming product, in-depth coverage, podcasts, rankings, prospect features, and original content. We can’t wait to deliver even more to fans next season.”
