Today, we have launched GRID TV for you, our fans, to get to know your favorite athletes and to absorb as much GRID action as your heart desires. You will go inside the athletes’ training and get introduced to some of the great personalities who are part of the NPGL.
We also will bring you the action! Watch past matches, listen to analysis, post-match press conferences and soak up highlights. We are so excited to have this platform to bring you our ongoing exclusive premium content.
“GRID TV is the perfect theater for our fans, a place they can come for even more coverage of the sport and where they can delve into the details of their favorite NPGL teams and athletes,” said NPGL CEO Jim Kean. “Interest in GRID is growing worldwide and as our sport grows, fans are asking for more. More in-depth analysis, more stories about athletes, more access behind the scenes, and this platform is the start of a lot more exciting things to come.”
With GRID being the first professional co-ed team sport, fans can’t help but be drawn into the dynamic of women and men competing together, and want to learn more about the intense strategizing required for a team to emerge victorious after 11 grueling races.
To that end, check out the premiere of ‘Behind the GRID,’ a series that gives you a look at the lives, personalities and preparations of the athletes of the NPGL. Follow alongside them as they journey through media days, training camp and match day.
Episode 1 takes you into the makeup and hair room, under the flashes of the photography studio and behind the cameras during video interviews. Not without shenanigans, of course. Guest appearances in episode 1 by Lindy Barber, Mike Abgarian, Quiana Welch, Ben Sturgill and Devonia Long of the Boston Iron, and Drew Canavero, Buddy Hitchcock and Ger Sasser of the San Francisco Fire.
Sean Buck, Vice President of Product Development at the NPGL, said that fans of GRID will be excited to have video at their fingertips, available also on mobile devices.
“This is for those who want to be a part of this historic journey of the rise of the NPGL and GRID,” Buck said, “for those who want to see what goes on behind the scenes and get to know the athletes better.”
