TAMPA, Fla. – United Soccer Leagues announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Tourbeau Sports Group that will see TSG provide live, exclusive video coverage of every match at the 2013 W-League Championship, Super-20 League Championship and W-20 Championship at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
More than 40 games from the three championships will be available via on-demand video and live stream to a worldwide audience for fans, families, clubs, and soccer enthusiasts. The 2013 Super-20 League Championship kicks off Thursday, July 18 at the world-class facilities of IMG Academy, and continues through Sunday, July 21. The W-League and W-20 championships will run simultaneously from July 25-28.
The agreement marks the first time that group stage games for the Super-20 League and W-20 will be available to watch live, in addition to the semifinals and finals. Tourbeau Sports Group, a leading video production and streaming company which works alongside some of the major industry leaders in soccer and sports for video content, will provide all group stage matches on its network, while the semifinals and finals of each league will be broadcast live on USLNation.com.
“Our goal at Tourbeau Sports is to provide a platform and opportunities for players, clubs, leagues and organizations to receive maximum exposure through digital media,” Tourbeau Sports President Chase Neidig said. “We believe bringing a turntable solution to USL and the three leagues not only makes it easy to provide fans with every minute of action from Florida, but also gives the participating clubs and players an opportunity to be branded on a national level using the platform of digital media.”
Nine W-League teams qualify for the postseason with one champion advancing from each conference to the 2013 W-League Championship. Eight teams will earn a trip to the inaugural W-20 Championship, with playoff allocations based on the number of teams in each division. A total of 16 qualifiers from throughout North America will compete for the Super-20 League Championship.
Live video streaming, DVD game film and audio commentary will be provided by Tourbeau Sports Group during each of the events in an effort with USL to continue its boost in content and exposure at the youth development level.
