World's Ultimate Strongman (WUS) is collaborating with Strongman Champions League, a 16 stage worldwide professional League to make the Dubai-born event accessible to millions of TV audiences in over 90 countries across the globe.
Showpiece channels like Amazon US, Extreme Sports, Spike 5 UK, RTL 7 in the Netherlands and Fox Sports Asia for example, will be among the many broadcasters showing the event, which debuted in the UAE last year and will be held again on Oct. 25 2019 at Meydan Grandstand Dubai.
The show will be aired throughout the whole season 2019-2020 , depending on the channels but there will be a live-stream available direct from the event on a pay-per-view basis.
This is the latest ground-breaking move from WUS who emerged onto the strongman scene in 2018 delivering on their promises of better treatment of athletes, record-breaking prize purses, and a five star show with an outstanding competition coupled with the highest of production values.
The WUS founders said this latest deal along with a few other steps yet to be unveiled show the direction they want to head in, and the event is very much here to stay.
"Looking at the demand on our live stream last year there is clearly a huge global audience that wants to watch our event," they said. "Being able to collaborate with the Strongman Champions League now opens up an enormous worldwide television network that means people in all corners of the globe will be able to see the greatest strongman show around.”
