One World Sports will serve up an array of New York Cosmos programming ahead of the club’s appearance in the upcoming North American Soccer League’s championship match.
With the Cosmos set to play the Atlanta Silverbacks in the Soccer Bowl championship on Nov. 9, One World Sports, beginning Nov. 3, will replay all seven Cosmos home games from the 2013 season, replete with special commentary from the club’s former goalkeeper, Shep Messing.
Additionally, the global sports network, which is carried by Dish Network, Cablevision, Mediacom and Google Fiber, will air a pair of highlight shows and five episodes of “Cosmos Classics”—featuring matches from the franchise’s halcyon days from the 1970s and 1980s— during the days preceding Soccer Bowl.
Moreover, the network will present vignettes of players and coaches reflecting on their first season. Among social media activities, Twitter followers (@ONEWorldSports) will be able to participate in a daily contest throughout the week to win Cosmos giveaways.
“We couldn’t be prouder at One World Sports of the incredible season accomplishments of the New York Cosmos,” said Alexander “Sandy” Brown, president and CEO of One World Sports. “We are excited about the opportunity to offer high-quality Cosmos programming as a lead-up to the Soccer Bowl.”
