COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS' NFL coverage plans for the 2001 season, assuming an end to the lockout presently putting league operations on hold while a labor agreement is negotiated, will include coverage of both of the scheduled international games in LONDON and TORONTO, plus the previously-announced network coverage of OAKLAND RAIDERS and DALLAS COWBOYS (in markets outside the team's core territory) games.
COMPASS will offer COWBOYS and RAIDERS pre-season coverage starting AUGUST 11th, and regular-season doubleheaders starting SEPTEMBER 11th with the ATLANTA-CHICAGO and SEATTLE-SAN FRANCISCO games. The coverage will include the annual game from LONDON, this year with the CHICAGO BEARS and TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS, on OCTOBER 23rd and the BUFFALO BILLS' "home game" at TORONTO's ROGERS CENTRE against WASHINGTON on OCTOBER 30th.
"We are truly excited to broadcast these incredible games," said COMPASS CEO PETER KOSANN. "We look forward to another fantastic season."
"Our broadcast coverage will span two continents taking us to nearly every NFL city in the nation," said COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS - SPORTS GM MICHELLE SALVATORE.
