What networks show college soccer?
Usually none up until NCAA times. They usually show conference games on some channels, I know CSN (formerly HTS) always shows the ACC and CAA games. Otherwise, there's nothing that I know of.
************, I can't get CSN.
The regional Fox Sports affiliates usually show the conference championships. I remember that the Big Ten, Big East, and ACC championships have all been televised by various Fox Sports affiliates in the past two years. And of course, ESPN and ESPN2 will show the College Cup, albeit in abbreviated and tape delayed form.
Anyone know if better programming is available recently? Cable or Satellite.
I heard a rumor from some coaching colleagues that CSTV is going to show a "Match of the Week" for 2005. I've also heard that it's only featuring matches with at least one member of the ACC. I guess we'll know in a few weeks.
I know that CSUN at UCSB is on CSTV this year. It should be the game of the year in the Big West.
I'm pretty sure CSTV showed around 5 regular season games last season.
Soccer make gains everyday, however small they all add up. NIU just signed a deal with a large Chicago radio station (WSCR "The Score") to do football and basketball games live. One of the stipulations in the contract is that Steve Simmons (NIU Soccer Coach) gets some air time..interviews, soccer chats. Thats a first in a market as big as Chicago.Keep an eye on NIU they're going to surprise some teams, they can play.
I know the rivalry is great but I am sad to see that CSTV is using one of its slots of Army vs Navy. The poor centre camera man is oging to be on workmans comp for a year after hurting his neck as the ball gets driven long over and over again..i dont think this will be good PR for the game. I admire whatthese guys do for our nation but most of them cant trap a back of sand
