“This package of events from the Summer World University Games is a perfect fit for Fox College Sports,” general manager David Nathanson said in a prepared statement. “We’ve done well programming the summer months with the best games and events from the preceding academic year, but the World University Games provide high-quality original event programming that is true to our mission.”
