Feld Motorsports announced the 2014 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship will be broadcast live by Fox Sports, while CBS Sports will air another nine hours of series coverage throughout the season.
All but four rounds will live air on Fox Sports 1, the new station that replaced AMA Supercross’ previous broadcaster SPEED. The Arlington, Texas, Atlanta, Ga., Detroit, Mich., and East Rutherford, N.J., rounds will air live on Fox Sports 2, with Fox Sports 1 re-airing the races on the following Sunday.
“We are doing a lot of great things with the team from Feld Motor Sports this year,” said David Nathanson, general manager and chief operating officer of Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2. “We kick off the first completely live Monster Energy Supercross season just days after the ball drops on New Year’s Eve in Times Square, and we have a big surprise for Monster Jam fans set to be announced the following week. The evolution of this long-running relationship continues to be an exciting part of our programming plans in 2014 and beyond.”
CBS Sport will air seven one-hour episodes and a two-hour special ahead of the East Rutherford round. An additional three hours of live streaming video will also be available online on SupercrossOnline.com, offering coverage of practice and qualifying sessions with analysis from Jim Holley and Kevin Barrett.
“With nearly 160 hours of domestic programming on FOX Sports and CBS Sports, and nearly 50 hours of live streaming of practice and qualifying, this is the most complete Monster Energy Supercross’ television and streaming package ever,” says Ken Hudgens, C.O.O. of Feld Motor Sports. “For the first time in the sport’s history, North American fans will be able to watch every race live. The international distribution of Monster Energy Supercross will also reach record levels in 2014, as nearly 200 countries will air Monster Energy Supercross this season, including live coverage from Australia.”
