MISL & Fox Soccer Channel Announce Exclusive Two-Year Broadcast Agreement

Fox Soccer
Channel and the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) announced a two-year
broadcasting agreement to televise league matches beginning this November through
the 2008/09 season. This partnership represents the MISL’s most comprehensive
national television coverage in its seven-year history.

The
20-match regular season telecast schedule for 2007/08 commences on Friday,
November 16 with the three-time MISL champion Baltimore Blast hosting the
expansion La Raza de Monterrey (MX), live at 8:00 p.m. ET. The complete
schedule, which concludes on March 28, 2008, will be announced at a later date;
most matches will air live on Fridays during the 8-10:00 p.m. ET broadcast
window.

“Our
extensive coverage of the Major Indoor Soccer League affirms Fox Soccer Channel’s
ongoing commitment to showcasing the very best domestic soccer competitions at
all levels of the sport,” said David Sternberg, executive vice president and
general manager of Fox Soccer Channel. “With its fast-paced, high-scoring
action, the MISL is a great addition to our domestic soccer offering that
already includes Major League Soccer, the United Soccer Leagues and college
soccer, as well as the perfect complement to our in-depth, exclusive coverage
of top-flight international leagues and tournaments.”

“This
is a very exciting time for our League, our fans, and our players,” said
MISL Commissioner Steve Ryan. “We are extremely proud to announce our multi-year
media partnership with Fox Soccer Channel. This partnership vastly increases
the exposure and frequency of our made-for-television professional sport and
places our League with

America’s
top soccer destination. As we expand the footprint of our League with the
addition of our three expansion teams in
Monterrey,

New Jersey and

Orlando, we continue to work diligently to
build and expand our media platforms to present our great game and our
world-class athletes to an ever-growing audience.”

This marks
the second national partnership between the MISL and Fox. During the 2002/03
season, Fox Sports World – the predecessor to Fox Soccer Channel – featured a
10-match MISL Game of the Week telecast package.
