McFeely blog: UND opening its athletic TV rights to bids, expects competition for them

FARGO — The University of North Dakota will open its athletics television rights to bids, meaning there is potential for Fighting Hawks hockey, football and basketball to be carried by someone other than Midco Sports for the first time in a decade.

"We expect competition," UND associate athletic director for external operations Kyle Doperalski said. "We are expecting that there will be multiple responses."

Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Midco Sports has held the rights to UND athletics broadcasts since 2012 when it won a competitive bidding process for a five-year contract. The university extended its contract with Midco for five years, without bids, when the initial agreement expired. Now that the extension has expired, UND will send out requests for proposals (RFPs) in the coming weeks.

"We are hopeful and confident that those RFPs will elicit responses," Doperalski said. >>> Full column here.

Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Midco Sports has held the rights to UND athletics broadcasts since 2012 but the school is hopeful opening bidding will draw interest from other area TV groups.
