Pressel Joins Analyst Brad Faxon and Play-by-Play Announcer Shane Bacon in the Booth

Los Angeles – FOX Sports’ 2019 USGA coverage tees off with the third round of the 2nd U.S. Senior Women’s Open Championship on Saturday, May 18 at 3:00 PM. ET on FS1. Coverage continues on Sunday, May 19 with final round action airing from 3:00 to 5:00 PM ET on FS1 from Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C.

FOX Sports mainstays analyst Brad Faxon and Shane Bacon anchor the booth, in addition to rules analyst David Fay and on-course reporters Nicole Castrale and Brett Quigley. The crew is joined by LPGA major winner Morgan Pressel, who provides insight and analysis alongside Faxon and Bacon throughout the weekend. Pressel is no stranger to the broadcast booth, having previously served as an analyst in FOX Sports’ digital coverage of the 115th U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay. She is also familiar with Pine Needles, having played the course in the 2001 U.S. Women’s Open at just twelve years old, the youngest qualifier ever at the time.

Pressel is the third youngest player to ever win an LPGA major tournament with her victory at the Kraft Nabisco Championship in 2007. An active member of the LPGA Tour, she also won the 2008 Kapalua LPGA Classic and has 60 career top-10 finishes. As an amateur, she tied for second at the 2005 U.S. Women’s Open, and later that same year won the U.S. Women’s Amateur. In just a few weeks she will compete in the 74th U.S. Women’s Open Championship at the Country Club of Charleston in Charleston, S.C.

FOX Sports Films Releases Trailer for Q Ball Documentary, Executive Produced by Kevin Durant

Fifth MAGNIFY Series Film Premieres on FS1, May 28

FOX Sports Films has released the trailer for its newest MAGNIFY series film “Q Ball.” The documentary chronicles the lives of incarcerated basketball players at San Quentin State Prison and is executive produced by Golden State Warriors All-Star Kevin Durant’s Thirty Five Media, in conjunction with HEIST and Hunting Lane Films.

“Q Ball” makes its TV debut on FS1, May 28th at 9 pm EDT. It will also appear in theaters in Los Angeles (Laemmle Music Hall), May 17-23 and New York (Cinema Village), May 24-30.

In the film, across the Bay from the NBA champions, there is another Warriors team – one that plays only home games. Director Michael Tolajian’s documentary, which got started during early visits by Durant and his fellow Warriors team members to San Quentin State Prison, explores inmates’ personal struggles as they search for redemption and transcendence both on and off the court. The answers, characters, and stories are complex, but in San Quentin – a place where freedom is taken away – basketball gives a little bit back.

This is the fifth documentary in FOX Sports Films’ “Magnify” series which brings a deep focus to unheard sports stories with real cultural impact. The series has garnered two Sports Emmy Award nominations for “Outstanding Long Sports Documentary,” (Shot in the Dark, 89 Blocks) since its inception in November 2017.

The director, Tolajian (“30 for 30: Once Brothers”) is an Emmy® and Peabody Award winner. Along with Durant, “Q Ball” executive producers also included Durant’s Thirty Five Media business partner Rich Kleiman, Jamie Patricof and Katie McNeill of Hunting Lane, Jordan deBree of HEIST, and Tolajian. Rebekah Fergusson also served as a producer.

The film is the latest addition to FOX Sports Films’ MAGNIFY documentary slate, which includes:

  • 2018 Sports Emmy®-nominated “89 Blocks,” executive produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter for Uninterrupted, along with Sports Illustrated (November 2017)
  • “Shot in the Dark,” executive produced by Dwyane Wade and Chance the Rapper (February 2018)
  • “Nossa Chape,” from award-winning directors Jeffrey Zimbalist and Michael Zimbalist (The Two Escobars, Pele: Birth of a Legend), which focused on the 2016 plane crash involving Brazilian soccer club Chapecoense (June 2018)
  • “They Fight,” produced by Common, directed by Andrew Renzi (November 2018)

The Stars Group and FOX Sports Announce Historic U.S. Media and Sports Wagering Partnership

TORONTO and LOS ANGELES, May 8, 2019 – The Stars Group Inc. (Nasdaq: TSG)(TSX: TSGI) and FOX Sports, a unit of Fox Corporation (Nasdaq: FOXA, FOX), today announced plans to launch FOX Bet, the first-of-its kind national media and sports wagering partnership in the United States. The Stars Group and FOX Sports have entered a long-term commercial agreement through which FOX Sports will provide The Stars Group with an exclusive license to use certain FOX Sports trademarks.

The Stars Group and FOX Sports expect to launch two products in the Fall of 2019 under the FOX Bet umbrella. One will be a nationwide free-to-play game, awarding cash prizes to players who correctly predict the outcome of sports games. The second product, which will be named FOX Bet, will give customers in states with regulated betting the opportunity to place real money wagers on the outcome of a wide range of sporting events in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations.

In addition to the commercial agreement of up to 25 years and associated product launches, Fox Corporation will acquire 14,352,331 newly issued common shares in The Stars Group, representing 4.99% of The Stars Group’s issued and outstanding common shares, at a price of $16.4408 per share, the prevailing market price leading up to the commencement of exclusive negotiations. The Stars Group currently intends to use the aggregate net proceeds of approximately $236 million for general corporate purposes and to prepay outstanding indebtedness on its first lien term loans. The common shares issued to Fox Corporation are subject to certain transfer restrictions for two years, subject to customary exceptions.

Rafi Ashkenazi, Chief Executive Officer of The Stars Group said: “We believe this strategic partnership uniquely positions us to build a leading betting business in the U.S., which represents one of the most exciting long-term growth opportunities for our company. Leveraging our proven media partnership strategy with Sky Sports in the UK, we are excited to partner with FOX Sports to integrate wagering into sports media and drive customer acquisition and retention in the U.S.”

Eric Shanks, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Producer of FOX Sports added: “FOX Sports is already synonymous with the best live sports events in the country and now we are expanding the way we immerse fans in the sports culture they love. Digital sports wagering represents a growing market opportunity that allows us to diversify our revenue streams, connect directly with consumers and expand the reach of the FOX Sports brand.”

Under the commercial agreement, FOX Sports will grant to The Stars Group an exclusive license for the use of certain FOX Sports trademarks for a range of immersive games and online sports wagering, and certain exclusive advertising and editorial integration rights on certain FOX Sports broadcast media and digital assets. As part of the transaction, FOX Sports will receive certain brand license, integration and affiliate fees. In addition, during the term of the commercial agreement, The Stars Group has agreed to a minimum annual advertising commitment on certain FOX media assets. Prior to the tenth anniversary of the commercial agreement, and subject to certain conditions and applicable gaming regulatory approvals, FOX Sports has the right acquire up to a 50% equity stake in The Stars Group’s U.S. business.

“All Eyes On Us”: FOX Sports’ New Women’s World Cup Spot Puts Focus on Defending Champion U.S. Team, 30 Days From the Tournament

 

Award-Winning Director Joseph Kahn Brings Viewers On-Field Into the Action Alongside Alex Morgan, Mallory Pugh, Megan Rapinoe and More

LOS ANGELES – With the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019™ just 30 days away, FOX Sports gets fans ready for the biggest live event of the summer with its “All Eyes on Us” spot, taking fans inside a heart-pounding, midfield moment with the defending World Champion, U.S. Women’s National Team. Alex Morgan, Mallory Pugh, Megan Rapinoe, Carli Lloyd, Tobin Heath, Crystal Dunn, Julie Ertz and Becky Sauerbrunn take on all comers with slick stepovers, nutmegs and turf-shattering tackles, showing the grit and skill they need to take on all challengers.

“You come at the queen, you best not miss” warns actress Carrie Coon, who narrates the piece.

“In ‘All Eyes on Us,’ we take you on to the field in a way you typically don’t see,” says Robert Gottlieb, FOX Sports’ EVP, Head of Marketing. “You’re really going to feel like a part of the action with the U.S. team. We know how powerful this sport is and couldn’t be more proud to be the ambassadors for it, bringing the tournament into everyone’s living rooms this summer.”

Joseph Kahn, renowned film and music video director (Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga), directed the spot, working with legendary Hollywood cinematographer Robert Elswit.

“I’m super fascinated by these warrior women – their physicality, mentality, camaraderie and teamwork,” says Kahn. “They’re superhuman and really inspiring. I wanted to capture that on-camera.”

The new ad debuts today, May 8 across FOX television networks and FOX Sports social media platforms as the lead piece of the larger “All Eyes on Me” campaign that’s so-far included:

“The Warrior” featuring Megan Rapinoe
“The Finisher” featuring Alex Morgan
“Goliath”

The campaign was created by Wieden + Kennedy New York.

From June 7 through July 7, all 52 FIFA Women’s World Cup™ matches will air live, including 22 on broadcast television – more than any FIFA Women’s World Cup ever – and on the FOX Sports app. Two daily studio shows will air live from Paris, while late night programming originates from FOX Studios in Los Angeles.
