The Pro Volleyball Federation, an upcoming US women's professional indoor volleyball league, has signed its first media rights deal with CBS Sports, an arm of the major US network owned by media giant Paramount.

The multi-year domestic rights deal makes CBS Sports an official television partner of the Pro Volleyball Federation (set to begin play in January), entailing a minimum of 10 matches being aired in 2024, as well as the semifinals and championship match of Pro Volleyball Federation’s championship weekend.

The matches will be aired primarily on CBS Sports Network in 2024, with the potential for some matches to also be aired on the main CBS channel.

The league’s complete national broadcast schedule, along with additional media rights partners, will be announced at a later date, with international rights also expected.

Pro Volleyball Federation co-founder Dave Whinham said: “This is another groundbreaking day in the history of Pro Volleyball Federation.

“In CBS Sports we have a great partner that believes in the growth of women’s professional volleyball in North America. We are very proud of this relationship and excited about the dynamic new ways we will be able to present our matches within the CBS Sports platform.”
