Cosm, a leading immersive technology, media, and entertainment company, today announced a multi-year agreement that will see ESPN bring live events across college and professional sports to Cosm’s forthcoming immersive venues in “Shared Reality” – an experience which bridges the virtual and physical worlds through Cosm’s pioneered technology and 87-foot diameter, 8K+ LED domes.
The expansive package of ESPN’s live premium sports programming will see Cosm produce and present marquee events across both the professional and college landscape. The agreement includes events such as the NBA, NHL, US Open Tennis, College Football Regular Season and Playoff, Men’s and Women’s College Basketball, College Baseball and Softball, and select UFC Fight Nights.
“This agreement represents years of collaboration with ESPN as we continuously work to bring fans some of the biggest and best sports events in the world,” said Jeb Terry, CEO and President at Cosm. “Now, we get to extend our work into Shared Reality, a new category of entertainment bringing fans closer to the action than ever before, with the same standard of excellence that ESPN stands for. With the addition of sports like tennis, incredible new college content, and a wide breadth of championship coverage, Cosm can now super serve every sports fan, regardless of their favorite sport, team, or league.”
Said Kevin Lopes, ESPN Vice President of Sports Business Development & Innovation: “ESPN has always had a relentless passion to provide fans with unique, innovative experiences. What we’re doing with Cosm is a prime example of that, and one that marks another exciting step into the world of immersive sports presentations for fans.”
Cosm’s first two public venues, set to open in 2024 in Los Angeles at Hollywood Park and Dallas at Grandscape, will deliver state-of-the-art visuals and merge the energy of the crowd with elevated food and beverage service to make guests feel like they are sitting front row, courtside, or rink-side at live events taking place across the world.  
Details of the schedule of events upon the opening of Cosm’s venues will be shared at a later date.
