ECBL to Broadcast Game of the Week

East Coast Basketball LeagueAsheville, NC – Chris Schieman Media & Marketing has announced a long-term deal to broadcast games for the East Coast Basketball League in 2015.

Chris Schieman Media & Marketing will broadcast regular season, all-star and post-season action for the ECBL throughout the 2015 season, with live and archived broadcasts available. The deal will create 10 national “ECBL Game of the Week” broadcasts, featuring some of the top basketball talent in the country.

“The commitment of the ECBL to marketing has been impressive,” play-by-play voice Chris Schieman said. “The ECBL is composed of owners who understand what it takes to make minor league basketball successful, and I can’t wait to start working with them.”

Schieman and the ECBL have been in talks for some time to reach this deal. “The ECBL has been very active in pursuing my services and it’s been a wonderful process talking with them about their goals,” Schieman said. “I have a love and devotion to the game of basketball and it will be enjoyable to be around people who share a passion and commitment to the game.”

Schieman will provide all of the play-by-play action for every game this season. Schieman is entering his 12th year in sports broadcasting.

The ECBL will begin its first season in 2015 but is composed of teams that have been around for several years or more. The league currently has 10 total teams playing in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.

The action tips off on Saturday, April 4 and concludes with the ECBL Championship Game on Saturday, June 27.

A full schedule of games to be broadcast as well as further information about broadcast times and dates will be available at the beginning of 2015. Additional broadcasts may be added once the regular season schedule is announced.

The contract with the ECBL is part of an aggressive overhaul planned for Chris Schieman Media & Marketing in 2015. The company is expected to expand throughout the Carolinas in the coming year to serve more national and regional clients than ever before.
