ESPN Will Televise FBS Playoff

ESPN to Air College Football Playoff

Derick Hingle-US Presswire

On Wednesday, Bill Hancock, the executive director of the BCS, and ESPN President John Skipper announced a deal that will allow ESPN to air the college football playoff which will begin in 2014.

The 12-year worth an undisclosed amount of money will have the Worldwide Leader in Sports Programming to air the national championship game as well as the two semifinal games and the bowl games that are apart of the semifinal hosting rotation during the season in which they don’t host a semifinal game from 2014 until 2026.

Along with televising the games on their main network ESPN will also obtain the rights to cover the games on radio, mobile television, WatchESPN, ESPN 3D, ESPN Deportes and internationally as well.

Skipper said in a statement on Wednesday, “Because of college football’s widespread popularity and the incredible passion of its fans, few events are more meaningful than these games. We are ecstatic at the opportunity to continue to crown a college football champion on ESPN’s outlets for years to come, the perfect finale to our year-round commitment to the sport.”

ESPN had already previously reached agreements with the Rose, Orange and Sugar Bowls which are all included in the playoff format. ESPN will also televise the BCS Championship Game for this season and next which means in total the network will air the National Championship for the next 14 consecutive years once the deal is approved and finalized.

The deal has yet to be finalized and signed however it is as good as done barring any last minute cancellations and changes within the structure of the deal.
