NBC will broadcast the Indoor Archery World Series Finals live from Las Vegas on its Olympic Channel on cable for the first time. The event takes place at 20h00 local on Saturday 8 February 2020 and is the culmination of a six-event international tour that started in Macau in November 2019.
This does mean that the live online stream will not be available to view in the USA. However, viewers can still watch online via the Olympic Channel.
NBC has broadcasted Hyundai Archery World Cup and World Archery’s championship events since 2017. This is the first time the production from the Indoor Archery World Series Finals will be distributed live to linear television.
The Indoor Archery World Cup was launched in 2010 as an open entry indoor archery circuit. It was relaunched in 2018 as the Indoor Archery World Series.
NFAA Foundations President Bruce Cull said: “The ongoing goal is to grow and professionalise the Vegas Shoot.”
“Having a major network like NBC broadcast the Indoor Archery World Series is a giant step forward in showcasing the sport to the wider public and another big achievement for the tournament.”
The agreement does not affect the Vegas shootdowns on Sunday afternoon, which will be streamed worldwide via World Archery and the NFAA as normal.
The Indoor Archery World Series Finals take place on Saturday 8 February in Las Vegas, USA.
