The Northeast Sports Network is excited to announce it has reached an agreement to produce internet video broadcasts of Bates College sporting events starting this fall.
Under the partnership NSN will provide live coverage of 98 Bates home games across a variety of sports throughout the 2017-18 school year. All broadcasts will be available on www.NSNSports.net at no cost to viewers, starting with a field hockey game against Montclair State on September 10.
“We are excited to be working with all the great people at Bates College and to be able to bring high quality coverage of Bates athletics to all the parents, alumni, fans and future Bobcats around the world,” said Ryan McDonald, NSN’s Chief Technology Officer.
Located in Lewiston, Maine, Bates fields 29 varsity sports teams that compete in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). NSN is also the official internet broadcasting partner for the NESCAC Championships and nine other conference schools – including Maine rivals Bowdoin and Colby – meaning Bobcats fans can watch nearly all of Bates’ league road and postseason games on NSNSports.net.
Based in Lyndonville, Vt., the Northeast Sports Network is the regional industry leader in live internet sports webcasting. Its college partners span six conferences across all three NCAA divisions while NSN’s high school productions include the regional rounds of the Maine Principals’ Association basketball tournaments.
