Ross Mobile Productions Becomes Ross Production Services
Of course, things have not always been smooth sailing for the crew, and the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting lockdown caused everyone a few sleepless nights. “We had a very full schedule of events right up until the beginning of lockdown, but then all live sports stopped, and our business went off a cliff overnight,” Repass notes. “Fortunately, the whole Ross business was in a very positive financial situation, so we used the time wisely to spring clean, learn some news skills and get ourselves ready for the inevitable restart. With sports beginning to come back online now, the business is returning and we’re absolutely ready to go!”
Speaking of a return to action, Ross Production Services is teaming up with the NBA to produce over seven weeks of WNBA games in Palmetto, Florida, starting July 24th. They will also be producing three full weeks of World Team Tennis at The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia from July 12th, as well as working with a brand-new sport league called Athletes Unlimited to produce thirty softball games over the course of five weeks, starting in August. “There’s no doubt that we’ve been through a tough and very sobering period,” says Stephen Repass, “but we’re glad to be coming back and bringing some top action to sports fans everywhere.”
