Street League Skateboarding (SLS) has announced an unprecedented landmark partnership with ESPN2 and the World of X Games on ABC, as well as the newly launched digital subscription network ETN to provide the largest broadcast distribution in SLS history.
SLS fans will be able to tune in and watch skateboarding’s most prestigious competition series, the 2017 SLS Nike SB World Tour. Within North America, ESPN2 runs exclusive broadcast recaps of each event, including a dedicated show featuring the Women’s Division of the Super Crown World Championship.
For those that missed the action, a highlight special will be aired as part of the World of X Games on ABC the weekend following each event. SLS will also be available live via ETN, the only digital OTT network with authenticity at its core, featuring original skateboarding shows and live events. The action from Barcelona’s upcoming SLS Pro Open will be free on ETN May 20th – May 21st for fans around the world to tune in live.
Since its inception in 2010, SLS has taken street skateboarding from a disparate collection of independent events to a global competitive platform built on a premium qualification system of amateur-to-professional progression and unmatched live events in world-class arenas.
Today the SLS Nike SB World Tour exists as the most elevated professional street skateboarding competition series in the history of the sport, taking place on custom-built, one-of-a-kind, SLS-certified plazas in cities around the world, with the best skateboarders competing for the highest stakes in the sport.
