LIV Golf Announces Exclusive US Broadcasting Deal


LIV Golf and The CW Network is set to bring the excitement of live golf events to an even wider audience after announcing a new broadcasting partnership.

Starting with the 2023 LIV Golf League season, The CW will air all 14 global events and stream them live on The CW App.

The deal will also be LIV’s first-ever U.S. broadcast television and streaming agreement.

The weekend tournaments will air live on Saturdays and Sundays on The CW and The CW App, and on Fridays on The CW App.

Additionally, the LIV on-air announce team will see its on-air talent squad return, with Arlo White leading play-by-play alongside analysts David Feherty and Jerry Foltz in the booth, and Dom Boulet, Su-Ann Heng, and Troy Mullins providing coverage on the course and in feature segments.

Commenting on the partnership, LIV CEO and commissioner, Greg Norman, said: “This is a momentous day for LIV Golf as this partnership is about more than just media rights.”

“The CW will provide accessibility for our fans and maximum exposure for our athletes and partners as their reach includes more than 120 million households across the United States.

“We’re very proud to note how consequential it is that a league that has only existed for one year has secured a full broadcast deal in its debut full league season.

“The CW and its majority owner, Nexstar Media Group, recognize the enormous interest in and potential of our league and with their support, more fans will experience the energy and innovative competition that LIV Golf is using to reinvigorate the sport.

“The CW is a world-class media partner, and we are honoured to be joining forces to further bring LIV Golf to life as they stake their claim in professional sports,” he said.

The CW Network president, Dennis Miller, added: “Our new partnership between The CW and LIV Golf will deliver a whole new audience and add to the growing worldwide excitement for the league.”

“With CW’s broadcasts and streams, more fans across the country and around the globe can partake in the LIV Golf energy and view its innovative competition that has reimagined the sport for players, fans and the game of golf.

“For The CW, our partnership with LIV Golf marks a significant milestone in our goal to re-engineer the network with quality, diversified programming for our viewers, advertisers and CW affiliates.

“This also marks the first time in The CW’s 17-year history that the network is the exclusive broadcast home for live mainstream sports,” he said.

The announcement comes after LIV announced three additional events were added to the 2023 calendar.
