There’s plenty of apps to watch major league sports. But what if the sports you’re into are the minor leagues? College sports? Sports with smaller audiences like bowling, track and field, or grappling? In this FloSports review, I’ll cover a streaming service that’s vision is to make sure “underserved sports finally get the love they deserve.”
I’ll break down what the best things about FloSports are, what’s on FloSports (including FloWrestling, FloTrack, FloBowling, FloRacing, and numerous others), how much a FloSports subscription costs, and if a FloSports free trial is available.

What is FloSports?
FloSports was started as a website to cover college wrestling and running by two brothers, Martin and Mark Floreani, in 2006. In its early days, it was a scrappy startup that filled its content with videos the brothers filmed across the country as they traveled in a run-down van.
Nowadays, the company is a much larger venture with close to 500 employees at its headquarters in Austin, TX. It has a massive library of over 300,000 hours of premium content across 25 sports categories. Channels like FloRacing saw their audience double in 2021 as FloSports began partnerships with major industry leaders like NASCAR for grassroots racing events.
Anyone who hasn’t heard of FloSports yet, likely soon will. It’s a rapidly growing sports streaming service for live and premium content that is becoming the best place to watch fan-favorite sports.
What's on FloSports? From FloWrestling to FloDance
Each of the sports featured on FloSports is separated into a website and hub with the “Flo” branding in its name. Take note that you will gain access to ALL sports with a FloSports membership.
Each sports category features live events, archived “replays,” behind the scenes coverage, original sports commentary shows and podcasts, news articles, rankings and results, training videos, as well as documentaries. There is a huge variety on FloSports. You'll find everything from singing competitions to dirt racing, mixed martial arts to rodeo.
Below I'll break down the different categories.:
One of the most popular categories on FloSports. Includes high school and college wrestling plus various professional levels, both in the United States and international. Associations included are the NCAA, NFHS, USA Wrestling, and UWW, among others.
You can follow specific athletes and look up their upcoming events. Plus follow their competition journey with brackets in a section called FloArena as well as rankings. There's also thousands of videos about training for athletes looking to hone their technique.
Shows broadcast throughout the week include The Bader Show, FloWrestling Radio Live, and Who's #1 The Show. FloFims related to wrestling include a documentary series on the top 100 American Wrestlers of All Time and an interview series called Groundbreakers that recently featured Lee Kemp.
The home to FloSports’ motor racing events got a big boost at the end of last year when it became the official platform to NASCAR Roots properties like the ARCA Menards Series, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour NASCAR Pinty’s Series, and the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Series. This content had previously been available on TrackPass with NBC Sports Gold.
Other offerings with FloRacing include the Chili Bowl Nationals USAC, FIA World Rallycross Championship, All Star Circuit of Champions, Eldora Speedway, and the Super DirtCar Series.
You’ll also find the FloRacing 247 live channel, racer interviews, results and rankings, and an assortment of documentary series like Crew Diaries and All-Access. FloRacing shows include the DirtonDirt VideoCast, The Loudpedal Podcast, Anderson 410, and The Rigsby Report Podcast.

You’ll find conferences including the Big Ten and the Big 12 and various others in the NCAA. Big events include the Under Armor Sunset Tour, the Amsterdam Marathon, the London Martathon, Marathon De Paris, Stumptown Twilight, Great Manchester Run, and the Great North Run.

Is there a FloSports Free Trial?
While there technically isn’t a free trial, some of their content can be viewed for free. To do this, follow the “sign-up” links on this page and check out the content on the FloSports website.
You’ll be able to watch a number of videos and replay highlights with advertising for free. Anything marked “Pro” (such as live events) will be reserved to paying subscribers. This is a good way to get a feel for their content.
FloSports App Review
FloSports can be accessed in the following ways:
- Through their website (FloSports supports Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox)
- On a mobile device (smartphone, tablet) through the iOS App Store or Google Play Store
- With a streaming device like an AppleTV, Roku player, Amazon FireTV device, or Chromecast
- With certain smart TV models by LG, Samsung, and Vizio
A downside to the desktop version is you have to navigate between the individual “Flo” websites and cannot access every sport in a central hub. That being said the desktop version has the most robust line of features like access to news articles, rankings, and brackets.
There are a small number of ads that will play during live events, but overall the app's performance was strong when I used either an Apple TV or Amazon Fire Stick. While you can only create one profile per account, you can stream on a robust 12 devices at the same. This will make it super easy for anyone in your household to access FloSports when they want to.
There's no option to stream in 4K but most of the videos I watched gave me the option to stream in HD up to 1080p.
FloSports Review- Final Thoughts
FloSports is a very promising streaming service, offering a huge lineup of content for sports fans. If you are looking to access a particular league, team, or sport that isn’t featured on some of the bigger sports streaming services, FloSports is a great platform to watch it.
For college sports, minor leagues, grassroots racing, and sporting events that are otherwise overlooked by the mainstream this will give you a platform to watch sports that might not otherwise be accessible to a wide audience.
If any of the “Flo” channels appeal to you, I recommend going to their website to check out some of the free content and decide if a FloSports subscription is right for you.
