Earlier this month The Spring League revealed it would be retuning May 6th with two more teams competing over a six-week season. This year TSL will be playing out of two hubs, Houston and Indianapolis. Lucas Oil Stadium will host the league’s north division and Houston will house the South. We knew when the season was kicking off, but we didn’t know what the schedule was going to look like or which games would be televised.
That is… until today. Just now, FOX put out a press release revealing the full TSL television schedule. Included in that announcement was the fact that TSL would have seven games on FOX, with 18 more split across FS1 and FS2.
Football is back 🏈
For the first time ever, @TheSpringLeague airs on broadcast television — with seven games on FOX and 18 more across FS1 & FS2
With the XFL on the sidelines for 2021 and possibly 2022 due to the discussions with the CFL, there’s a lot of new eyes on The Spring League. Getting coverage on broadcast television could prove to be huge for the league.
Beyond airing on broadcast television for the first time, it’s also the first time that ALL TSL games will be aired live. We’re looking forward to coving the upcoming TSL season in person at both hubs and can’t wait to see what the league can show us this time around.
