FloSports, the innovator in live digital sports and original content, today announced an agreement with Beat The Streets Wrestling, to air its annual Beat The Streets New York City event on Thursday, May 17, at Pier 17/Seaport District in lower Manhattan. Coverage will be available live and on-demand exclusively on FloWrestling.com for the fourth consecutive year.
Kicking off the benefit, the top Beat the Streets youth wrestlers will take to the mat showcasing their skills in exhibition matches. Additionally, several youth matches will be held featuring athletes from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The Benefit will also feature the PSAL Girls Freestyle Dual Meet Championships finals for the third straight year. The matches will exhibit the top New York City girls freestyle wrestling high school teams from the spring girls freestyle season.
Directly after, Team USA will then take on an international squad, with video highlights and special guest appearances made throughout the event. Jordan Burroughs of the United States and Frank Chamizo of Italy, will compete in the headliner super match. Rosters for both American squads and their respective international opponents will be announced at a later date.
The Benefit Celebration at Pier 17 will directly follow the wrestling competition. This unique and electrifying annual event helps Beat the Streets raise significant funds to further its mission. Whether it’s providing a safe, constructive outlet for our urban youth, fighting childhood obesity, empowering women, or uniting entire nations, Beat The Streets strives to teach persistence, dedication, and the value of hard work to achieve one’s goals through wrestling, and creates opportunities for personal and universal growth. Beat The Streets currently serves more than 3,000 student-athletes every year.
“The lessons and values of wrestling can help anyone grow and learn from hardship,” FloSports SVP Global Rights Acquisition & Strategy, Adam Fenn said. “The Beat the Streets program provides youth the opportunity for personal development and the value of teamwork at an early age in a safe and social environment. We’re honored to spotlight these teams and matches at the Beat the Streets New York City event, and look forward to working with their team for a special night.”
“We are excited to announce that FloWrestling will once again be live streaming this year’s Beat The Streets Annual Benefit matches at the brand new Howard Hughes venue at Pier 17 in the Seaport District,” said Brendan Buckley, Executive Director, Beat the Streets Inc. “Our continued partnership with FloWrestling will showcase this must-see event where Beat the Streets boys and girls from several different cities will compete against one another before the U.S. National team takes center stage. We appreciate FloWrestling for reminding the viewers that the reason this landmark event takes place is to support the more than 3,000 boys and girls that wrestle in New York City through access to training centers, coaches, competitions, summer camps and various enrichment opportunities such as tutoring, SAT Prep, college visits, and job internships.”
