Welcome back to revealing better results. And I have Mr. Scott 7 on the line with me here. And there is a lot of exciting news coming up at mad at the magic city fraud time.
And last night the p R into featured magic city high lie and battle court season, and the battle and the match for battle, court and battle court season to air on e S P n.
This september, september 23rd. And, and scott, how did you come about with the, with the broadcasting deal? How did you get a broadcasting deal with e S P?
And that's, that's pretty major. Well, we feel very fortunate. And in garland we, we appreciate the ration relationship that we have with you and your network as well.
We've been, we've been trying for actually several years to get e S P n to take some notice of us. And honestly, we've developed a following on tick tock of several 100000 viewers.
And that really seemed to peak their interest. They, you know, they're trying to build their streaming audience and they're trying to get new sports products. So we will be live with all our battle court matches starting September 23rd.
And then we were very fortunate because they said we can offer you a prime time 8 PM slot on the S P n to. If you can get us a produce show and we had about 7 days to do it.
So I wasn't the one doing the editing, but the editors were pretty much working around the clock to get this wrapped up. And then we aired last night and it was a huge success and a great step forward for the program.
And now we look forward to battle court season coming up and kicking off september 23rd. And hopefully our audience will be up to about 300000000 homes at that point.
Wow. Ok. Well, we'll highlight tv is also coming to magic city. highlight is, is, is highlight, going to include the polluted games and stats and played by please highlight tv will be including a little bit of everything.
So yes, they want all things highlight. So they'll have to load it. They'll have h 2 H, they'll have battle court and they archive everything.
And I think, you know, the concentration will be on the upcoming battle court season, but they will, they will have everything there. Ok. Ok,
well do you see that eventually the political games will be phased out in and people will be concentrating more on h 2, which is about a court court formats.
I think the team concept with battle court really is understood well by the sport span. And I think that they understand the h 2 H in the battle court format,
where you're playing 2 out of 3 sets up to 6 points to win a match. It's easier for them to understand that than the polosa there. There is a following for the pillows,
so I would say it might be reduced, but probably not entirely phased out and battle court will be increased. All right, well there's an interest internationally for highlight to h in battle court to kick off in mexico when other countries do you think that when the International squaws are ready and they're all trained,
will they will they have their own li that has inter lee play in tournaments with, with the magic city front on that's the plan. We may be a few years away from that,
but I think everyone is coming around to the battle court format and the team format. And we're talking to people down in mexico and also in spain. About having their own 4 or 5 team leagues.
And then at the end of the season, you know, the US team in the mexican team in the Spanish team, the champions would all sort of meet up in a final tournament.
And then ultimately like our super bowl of highlight. Wow. Okay, yeah, that sounds exciting. What, what's well, what's the main goal for magically the highlight?
And what do you guys concentrating on and cheating for this upcoming battle court season? I think the main goal is exposure of the product and then getting people excited about the sport itself,
the speed, the athleticism of the players. And you know, starting to find their favorite team or their favorite player to boot for just like they would.
And you know, football, basketball or baseball. All right, well, were sunday still be the main days where fans can attend and watch the matches.
That magic city. Actually, we've been advised that when we're in football season, it's best to not have sunday be our live day. So we're going to switch to Friday nights.
So at 7 o'clock on Friday nights it will be live in Miami. We're going to make a real big effort to try and fill the front on. And we'll have a lot a lot better time slot at 7 o'clock on Friday night.
Don't have to go up against the NFL or even, you know, college football. So we're very excited about that. Yeah, definitely. Sounds like a better.
Better line up there on Friday. I'll be tuning in, so, but it's good. Yeah, it's, it's funny cuz miss exquisite mrs. exquisite 1st lady of exquisite podcast radio network often says that I really don't watch all the sports anymore.
Just highlight d, the highlight is going to have the same effect on, on fans that have been loyal to football, baseball and basketball. Well, I mean,
we know it's going to be a slow, but hopefully very steady growth. And we are especially looking forward to the response from the younger viewers, the people in there,
really twenties, thirties, and forties, who are discovering highlight for the 1st time, and really fascinated and somewhat captivated by the sport, speed of the sport,
the danger of the sport. And just be asked the athletic ability of the players. So we're hoping for a slow build and that's why friday nights are attractive to us.
You know, there's not that much else to be watching sports wise in the winter months in and during the football season. So hopefully we'll capitalize on that and hopefully we'll,
we'll get you down to Miami a time or 2 to see it up close in person. Oh yeah, definitely definitely, definitely be down there for that.
A court to championships, and E P R in life to think of ourselves is the marketing arm for magic cb highlight. And as we continue to push highlight cation forward,
what do you think sticks out in the mind of new fans the most player insights and highlights or approved state wage, you ring to bet rivers or defends like the merchandise or the combination of all 3.
I think it's a combination, but I think the 1st thing you said, learning about our players and getting insights into who they are and their backgrounds and you know,
we have such a diverse locker room, you know, we have players from mexico, spain, france, the Philippines, and of course, you know,
here in the US and then we've got, you know, former college athletes. We've got x pro athletes. We have a complement of younger players guys that are,
you know, 18192021. And then we've got, you know, the kind of older veterans, the guys in their late thirties in early 40. So it's really an amazing locker room,
very cohesive. You know, the young kids and the older veterans and people really from all nationalities, cultures and walks of life. And it's a diverse but a very cohesive locker room.
So that we really like to focus on our players and get people to know who they are. And you know how they got to highlight. Wow, wow.
Okay. Well, scott, it's definitely been a pleasure getting an update on everything that's going on in front of the magic city. Any special thanks a shout out to the listeners before we in the podcast.
Well, I mean, we think all of our listeners for tuning in watching highlight, learning about the sport and, you know, we hope it's just slow,
steady growth. We're highlight will become a mainstream sport and maybe some who make the trip down to Miami, starting September 23rd so they can see us in person.
And, you know, ask for me because I'm there every friday night and happy to meet the fans. How all right, all right, and you've heard here on the p.
