The American Kennel Club (AKC®) is excited to announce that the AKC Flyball Dog Challenge, presented by Tractor Supply Company, will air on ESPN2. The competition will be televised on Saturday, March 25th at 4pm ET.
This invitational event, held in collaboration with North American Flyball Association, took place on February 26, 2023 in Ocala, FL. Eight teams from the United States and Canada competed over two days. This year’s competition also included the Inaugural Flyball Run-Off Races, a head-to-head competition for individual competitors.
“We are thrilled to be able to share the sport of Flyball with ESPN viewers,” said Gina DiNardo, AKC’s Executive Secretary. “Flyball is such a fast-paced sport that it will keep them glued to their televisions.”
The broadcast will be hosted by sportscaster Carolyn Manno, including sideline reporter Bill Ellis and analysis by Ashley Hilliker.
