fuboTV Partners with Professional Fighters League


fuboTV has entered an exclusive multiyear partnership with the Professional Fighters League (PFL) for the new PFL Challenger Series.

The PFL Challenger Series is set to debut on February 18, 2022, and will stream on consecutive Friday nights on fuboTV and its linear network Fubo Sports Network. Each week will see a new judging panel made up of combat sports champions, major celebrities and global influencers.

Viewers will be able to interact with the live competition through fuboTV’s predictive, free-to-play games. They will also be able to bet, with Fubo Sportsbook to be the exclusive gambling sponsor of the series. It launched in November in Iowa and will launch in additional states pending the requisite regulatory approvals.

“PFL Challenger Series is not your father’s contender series,” said Donn Davis, founder and chairman of the PFL. “The winner of the PFL Challenger Series can become a real-world Rocky story, going from an unknown pro to World Champion holding a $1 million check in the same year.”

“fuboTV provides sports fans an innovative viewing experience, and PFL could not be more excited to launch our new PFL Challenger Series exclusively on their platform,” added Peter Murray, CEO of the PFL. “The PFL Challenger Series will be the most unique live fight show showcasing the MMA stars of tomorrow, and I’m confident it quickly will become buzzworthy viewing.”

David Gandler, co-founder and CEO of fuboTV, said, “Our partnership with the PFL and their new PFL Challenger Series allows fuboTV to further differentiate our sports-first programming with exclusive MMA content, which we know is one of the hottest live sports for consumers.”

“fuboTV believes the future of sports television will be interactive,” Gandler continued. “This partnership will give our audience unprecedented ways to interact and engage with the PFL. We are looking forward to bringing an interactive sports and entertainment television experience to consumers next year through this very unique partnership.”
