For Immediate Release:
DGPT Announces 2022 Post-Production Media Plan
February 22, 2022: The Disc Golf Pro Tour is pleased to announce its post-production media plans for the 2022 season. JomezPro has signed a two-year agreement to gain post-production coverage rights to the MPO Lead Card for the 2022 and 2023 DGPT seasons. GK Pro has agreed to a one-year deal for coverage rights to the FPO Lead Card, and Gatekeeper Media will produce MPO Chase Card coverage for both the 2022 and 2023 DGPT seasons. Additionally, the DGPT will be working with GK Pro and Central Coast Disc Golf to provide post-produced coverage of Silver Series events on the DGPT’s YouTube channel.
While this constitutes the current season-long partnerships, more post production will provide additional coverage throughout the season. FPO Chase Card coverage will be added whenever possible, and is planned for all PDGA Majors
The agreement with JomezPro is groundbreaking for disc golf media. In addition to covering MPO lead cards for all DGPT Elite Series events for 2022 and 2023, they will also provide coverage for three PDGA Majors; the PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships, the United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship, and the Champions Cup. The historic, two-year agreement will see JomezPro purchasing the MPO lead card post-production coverage rights of the events for $500,000.
“At JomezPro, our mission is to share our love of the sport of Disc Golf across the world through our media channels,” said JomezPro founder Jonathan Gomez. “Through our partnership with the DGPT and our first multi-year agreement, we are able to create a long-term media strategy that will allow us to serve the community in new and exciting ways!”
“We are thrilled to bring back the full team of post-production media partners from 2021,” said DGPT CEO and Tour Director Jeff Spring. “The value generated through media, in 2022, will be put right back into event support, continued purse growth, and another record-breaking DGPT Championship payout. The disc golf industry has seen incredible progress and development, working together, and these agreements strengthen all parties and give disc golf fans the high-quality, post-produced coverage that they’ve come to know and love.”
GK Pro and Gatekeeper will also provide additional coverage at PDGA Majors. Gatekeeper will provide Chase Card coverage at the PDGA Pro World Championship and the Champions Cup, while GK Pro will provide FPO Lead Card coverage at both as well, along with additional post-production coverage at the USWDGC.
The 2022 Disc Golf Pro Tour regular season kicks off this Thursday, February 24 with the Las Vegas Challenge. Post-production coverage will be available on each of the above media team’s YouTube channels.
