Major League Rugby

Outside Broadcast

Major League Rugby (MLR) is a professional sports league which has just entered its fourth season and represents the highest level of competition in North America. The league evolved from seven teams in 2018, to 13 teams in 2021, featuring 12 from the United States and one from Canada.

On Saturday 20 March, Gravity Media’s flagship mobile unit in the USA Columbus was at the iconic Los Angeles Coliseum covering the action as LA Giltinis took on New England Free Jacks. Columbus then returned onsite at the Los Angeles Coliseum on Sunday 28 March as the Seattle Seawolves faced the Los Angeles Giltinis. The LA Giltinis are a all-new team who were awarded a franchise for the 2021 MLR season and are named after a premium cocktail based on the Martini.

Our range-topping vehicle ‘Columbus’ is a technological tour de force. Designed and built specifically for the US live market, it covers every conceivable broadcast application, from sport and media to news and entertainment, and can be supplied with a crew of experienced supervisors and engineers.
