Future of Score Fighting Series Unclear After Television Network’s Sale
By FCF Staff
The Score Fighting Series has made some significant waves in the Canadian MMA scene since its inception in 2011, however, what the future holds for the promotion remains to be seen. Last year, The Score Television Network, which is the broadcasting platform and parent company of the SFS, was acquired by the telecommunications giant Rogers Media. Due to the fact the purchase is currently being reviewed by Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, what’s next for the SFS is unclear.
Score Media Inc. sent out the following press release Tuesday regarding the status of SFS.
Contrary to reports, no decision has been made regarding the future of The Score Fighting Series (SFS).
We can confirm personnel changes were made this week in relation to the SFS. The Score will continue to assess the future of the SFS on an ongoing basis.
To clarify, Rogers Media plays no part in the operations of The Score Television Network (The Score). The Score is currently operating in trust until the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approves its acquisition by Rogers Media. All decisions affecting the network and SFS are made by the management and trustee of The Score.
Since SFS began holding shows in 2011, the promotion has featured notable fighters like Ryan Healy, John Alessio, Chris Horodecki, Jordan Mein and emerging Canadian talent like Josh Hill, Jesse Ronson and Jason Saggo among others.
The promotion’s cards were initially broadcast on The Score network via tape delay, however, more recent events were carried live by the network as well as AXS TV in the U.S.
