|USA Wrestling & Flowrestling to webcast Las Vegas U.S. Open and all other events from April 17-21|
By Gary Abbott USA Wrestling
USA Wrestling has announced that it will be partnering with Flowrestling to bring live and complete video coverage from the Las Vegas U.S. Open and all the other USA Wrestling events being held in Las Vegas, Nev., April 17-21
Flowrestling is a division of Flocasts, a sports media company specializing in video coverage. Live event production has become a specialty of Flocasts.
“USA Wrestling is excited to partner with Flowrestling and team together to take the promotion of wrestling to a new level,” said USA Wrestling Executive Director Rich Bender. “Our combined resources allow us to expand and strengthen the live wrestling coverage that wrestling fans deserve and expect.”
"I'm ecstatic to be working hand-in-hand with Rich Bender and USA Wrestling,” said Martin Floreani, co-founder of Flocasts. “USA Wrestling and Flowrestling are aggressively looking to improve and both organizations are inherently passionate about wrestling. We have many overlapping goals and now we are working as a team to get them done. It's a truly exciting day."
In partnership with USA Wrestling, Flowrestling will run LIVE feeds on their Tech Wave platform from all 20 mats for all four days of competition at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This will include all the live action from each of these exciting events, right from the beginning to the very end:
• Las Vegas U.S. Open, April 18-20
• ASICS FILA Junior Nationals, April 19-20
• U.S. Veterans Freestyle and Greco-Roman Nationals, April 17-18
• U.S. Grappling World Team Trials, April 19-20
• Western Junior Regionals for boys and girls, April 17-18
Commentary will be provided for the championship finals and other key rounds from the featured events. The announcers for the live webcast will include staff members from Flowrestling and from USA Wrestling, including Mark Bader and Willie Saylor of Flowrestling and Richard Immel of USA Wrestling, plus other popular guest commentators from within the wrestling community. It will feature unprecedented coverage from the industry standard in live wrestling productions.
This will be the first event of this size and magnitude in which live webcast coverage from every mat for all sessions has been provided. It is also the largest number of mats which has ever been covered with a live webcast in the history of American wrestling. Neither USA Wrestling nor FloWrestling could have been able to provide this complete and extensive coverage without working together and combining resources. It could only be financially possible with the use of a subscription-based format which is provided by Tech Wave.
The cost for Tech-Wave is $20 per month, or $150 per year. The monthly cost would provide access to all of the USA Wrestling events in Las Vegas, as well as all of the other quality programs including extensive technique, features and live events provided through Tech-Wave for a full month. Signing up for the year subscription will provide at least five major USA Wrestling events this season, as well as an entire year of high-quality programming developed by FloWrestling.
