“We are continually exploring new and different ways to deliver live content to fans of the Mountain West while expanding the profile and visibility of our member institutions,” MW Deputy Commissioner Bret Gilliland said. “This new partnership with FloSports is another exciting step forward, particularly given the audience base FloSports has built through its sport-specific vertical platforms in swimming & diving and track & field.”
