The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) has announced a multi-year agreement with ESPN to livestream regular season football games as well as the SIAC football championship game.
“We are excited about our relationship with ESPN,” said SIAC Commissioner Gregory Moore. “Over the past several years, the SIAC Council of Presidents have made significant investments towards building and cultivating our member schools digital and social media assets. That fact, coupled with the SIAC leadership in average football attendance for 14 consecutive years, makes ESPN3 the perfect platform to provide SIAC member schools and student-athletes with national exposure opportunities.”
Last month the SIAC announced a renewal of their agreement to have games broadcast on Aspire TV. That schedule began September 30 with Albany State visiting Miles. This weekend (Oct 7) Tuskegee vs. Morehouse in Columbus, Ga will be shown on Aprire TV.
ESPN President John Skipper added, “ESPN’s multiple platforms provide national exposure for a broad array of live sports, and we are happy to add these SIAC games to our offerings. Through these collaborations with schools across the country, we serve even more fans by showcasing the events that they want to watch.”
