IFL and Alfred Haber Distribution add three new territories to their international television network

The
International Fight League, the team-based professional mixed martial arts
league, and Alfred Haber Distribution (AHDI) announced the addition of another
three territories to their fast-growing international television network. “IFL
Battleground” and “IFL Fight Night” will be carried by EGO in

Israel and TV4 in

Sweden
and licensed by ABS-CBN in the

Philippines,
starting in September. These additions come after AHDI and the IFL announced
their first Asian television deal with STAR on August 6.

“Our
television business has now grown steadily thanks to the combination of quality
programming that tells the stories and shows our events to a mainstream
audience, and the diligent work of AHDI,” said Gareb Shamus, IFL co-founder and
CEO. “This additional Middle Eastern exposure, as well as the growth into
Europe and the

Philippines,
is another sure sign that the IFL business model is growing soundly and that
there is more good news to come for our television partners, our business
partners and the growing number of MMA fans around the world.”

ABS-CBN is
the largest television channel in The Philippines, while EGO is one of the
fastest growing private channels in

Israel
and TV4 is a top network in

Sweden.
The addition of these partners adds to an IFL TV platform that also includes
all of the Middle East and parts of northern Africa on MBC, the leading
free-to-air Pan-Arab news and entertainment channel in the region and CanWest
Global in

Canada,
who is distributing the shows on their Global X-Treme Sports Channel. Those are
in addition to STAR and almost 60 countries in Asia, and the IFL’s United
States deals with “IFL Battleground,” hosted by Tiffany Fallon and Bas Rutten
on MyNetwork TV (Mondays at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific/7 p.m. Central) and “Fight
Night” (Fridays at 11 p.m. on FSN). IFL programming is also seen worldwide on
Armed Forces Network.
