Heading into the 2016 season, MSG and Red Bulls have signed a multi-year agreement that gives the network exclusive regional telecast rights. MSG Networks will air at least 17 matches throughout the season, which includes the season opener on March 6 and six of the season’s first seven games. In addition, each game televised on MSG will also be streamed on MSG Networks’ authenticated streaming platform, MSG GO.
“MSG Networks and the Red Bulls have enjoyed a long partnership together and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have them return to MSG Networks for their 20th season,” said Andrea Greenberg, president and chief executive officer, MSG Networks. “The team’s popularity is higher than ever and we’re excited to continue to present Red Bulls games on our networks.”
The multi-year agreement follows the 2015 season in which ratings were the highest in three season and were up 65 percent over the 2014 season.
“MSG Networks has been a valued member of our family since the beginning and we are pleased to continue our partnership,” said Marc de Grandpre, General Manager of the New York Red Bulls. “It is a priority for us to continue to provide our fans with the best-in-class live sports production that they have enjoyed for over 20 years.”
