LDN Wrestling Sign International TV Deal
LDN Wrestling – in association with TWC Fight! – are delighted to announce that a deal has been struck with ‘The Fight Network’ for LDN Capital TV to be shown across Canada and North America.
LDN Capital TV, which last week celebrated its one-year anniversary, is the longest running weekly British Wrestling programme since the days of the World Of Sport.
And from November, fans across the pond will be able to enjoy the action too.
The Fight Network will pick up the show from the start of the 2007 Golden Grappler Tournament, which produced some of the finest British-style bouts seen in the UK for over 30 years, and put LDN squarely on the international wrestling map.
LDN owner, Sanjay Bagga said he was “delighted and proud” to be a part of the first ever British wrestling promotion to earn an international television deal, and credited the return to the traditional style of rounds, corner-men and even the dreaded ‘public warnings’ for the programme’s popularity.
By putting on a wrestling-oriented show suitable for the whole family, we’ve created a programme that can be enjoyed by fans around the world.” said Mr. Bagga. “We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with The Fight Network, and hope our new Canadian and North American fans will enjoy Capital TV just as much as the fans in the UK.”
The Fight Network’s Senior Vice President of Programming, Brian Sobie, said “The Fight Network’s programming mandate is to deliver the best boxing, wrestling and mixed martial arts to our viewers. With the addition of LDN Capital TV to our schedules, we’re giving fans a taste of international grappling action they just can’t get anywhere else. We’re sure they’re going to love it!”
In the meantime, fans in the UK can continue to enjoy LDN Capital TV on TWC Fight! (Sky Ch.427) every Tuesday at 11pm and again on Saturday at midday!
