ONE World Sports’ ‘Championship Week’ Celebrates Success of NY Cosmos’ First Season Of 21st Century
Programming to Feature Season Highlights, Home Replays, Classic Matches
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
ONE World Sports, which offers coverage of world-class sporting events from around the globe, announced special programming for Nov. 3-Nov. 9 to help New York Cosmos fans celebrate the storied team’s first season of the 21st century.
The Cosmos returned to the North American Soccer League this season for the first time since its halcyon days of squads featuring legends like Pele, Franz Beckenbauer and Giorgio Chinaglia. The result: a berth in the league’s Soccer Bowl championship, playing the Atlanta Silverbacks on Nov. 9 at Atlanta Silverbacks Park in Atlanta. The Silverbacks secured their berth in the bowl by winning the NASL’s spring-season championship, while the Cosmos recently secured the fall championship.
As a lead-up to the team’s participation in the Soccer Bowl, ONE World Sports will replay all seven Cosmos home games and feature special commentary by the former Cosmos goalkeeper Shep Messing. A pair of highlight shows and five episodes of “Cosmos Classics”—featuring matches from the 1970s and 1980s—are also set for the week prior to the Soccer Bowl.
In addition, vignettes of players and coaches reflecting on their first season will air throughout the week. 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.”
ONE World Sports also carries professional soccer matches from leagues around the world, including the season-long action of Arsenal, Chelsea and Bayern Munich in Europe and games in the top leagues of Asia and Australia. The network’s coverage also features exclusive, live competitions in several other global sports such as baseball, golf and table tennis, among others.
