The site couldn’t handle the demand for the OSU, Penn State match

@OSUPaddlePeople

The biggest wrestling match of the year went down on Sunday between Oklahoma State and Penn State. OSU fans showed up in record numbers to watch the meet.

Fans of the two teams who couldn’t make it to Gallagher-Iba Arena to watch had the option to view the match live on FloWrestling.com, who grabbed exclusive broadcasting rights.

Unfortunately, the site wasn’t up to the task.

FloWrestling’s site crashed at the beginning of the meet, leaving those who had paid the $20 subscription fee to watch out of luck. Many fans were vocal about their displeasure on social media.

While FloWrestling went live on Periscope until the problem was fixed, the damage was done. Today, the FloSports CEO and Co-Founder Martin Floreani issued an apology to everyone affected by the site crash.

Floreani also says the site is offering full refunds to anyone who wants one. All you have to do is email support@flosports.tv. You can also keep your subscription and get two months free if you so choose. He also offers up his email address for anyone who wants to contact him directly.

While they may have screwed up the meet, it’s nice to see them taking responsibility for it, and trying to make it up to fans as best as possible.
