ESPN Will Broadcast the 2015 World Games in LA

By Christy White

ESPN will be the official broadcaster of the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles. The partnership between ESPN and the 2015 World Games means that ESPN’s hundreds of millions of fans worldwide will have the chance to learn more about Special Olympics' mission to promote acceptance and inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities.

ESPN has been a strong supporter of Special Olympics Unified Sports, which brings people with and without intellectual disabilities together on the same playing field. For almost a year, ESPN has used its worldwide broadcasting and publishing power to promote Unified Sports. The agreement to broadcast the 2015 World Games is separate and additional.

The agreement provides ESPN with rights to the 2015 Special Olympics World Games Opening Ceremony from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, daily competition, Closing Ceremony and other cultural activities. ESPN will produce the Opening Ceremony live as well as a nightly highlights program and KABC-TV will also play a role in the coverage for the Los Angeles market. ESPN will feature both English- and Spanish-language coverage of some parts of LA2015. Specific programming and coverage details will be announced in the months ahead.
