The potential agreement — which is still being finalized — is with Fox Sports 1. While media companies typically pay sports leagues a substantial rights fee to air their products, the deal would not see LIV receive payment, said a source familiar with the discussions.

    Prioritizing football over NIL opportunities, Arch Manning may set new trend for top college prospects
