One World Sports has expanded its relationship with the New York Cosmos through a renewal deal.

Under the multiplatform pact, financial terms of which were not disclosed, One World Sports will televise all of the 30 team's 2015 NASL regular-season games, as the upcoming campaign will mark the first time the global sports service will air the team's away matches.

“Cosmos fans have been clamoring to see away games,” said Alexander “Sandy” Brown, One World Sports president and CEO.  “Thanks to our new agreement, we’ll be able to ensure fans can catch all the action throughout the spring and fall NASL seasons.”

In the New York area, Cosmos fans will be able to watch the club on Cablevision’s Optimum TV, channel 1159; Dish Network, channel 9794; Verizon FiOS, channel 309; and RCN, channel 571. 

One World Sports is also available on mobile devices via a Watch One World Sports app for authenticated customers.

For the April 4 spring season opener, the Cosmos head to Fort Lauderdale to face the Strikers, which made the 2014 NASL playoffs. The April 18 home opener will see the Cosmos battle the Tampa Bay Rowdies at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium.

"This is great news for our fans and another step in the growth our club and the NASL," Cosmos COO Erik Stover said.  "One World Sports, with its very high-quality production values, has been a tremendous partner for us, so we’re delighted that our road games will also be broadcast this season.”

The full Cosmos schedule will be available on ONEWorldSports.com as the season approaches.
