Chris Schieman Media & Marketing will broadcast seven regular season ECBL games in 2016, as well as all-star and post-season coverage. Each game will be broadcast live on the ECBL YouTube page. All games will be available to watch on-demand, with select broadcasts possibly on-demand only.
The first ECBL “Game of the Week” broadcast takes place on Saturday, March 19th when the Petersburg Revolution expansion team visits Winston Salem Certified. Winston Salem is also a first year ECBL team, joining after leaving the Tobacco Road Basketball League last season. Other highlights include a Southern Division showdown between Carolina and defending champion Prime Time Players on April 23rd, and full coverage of the All-Star weekend in Columbia, SC on June 4th. The “Game of the Week” broadcasts conclude Saturday, June 25th with the ECBL Championship.
This is the second consecutive year that Chris Schieman will lead the broadcasting for the ECBL. “I’m honored the ECBL was so active in encouraging me to return this season,” Schieman said. “They have a group of very passionate, dedicated people excited to grow the game of basketball and I can’t wait to do my part to promote the league. Last year the response was very positive and year two should be even better.”
Schieman was interested in working with the league again in part because of the talent. “The players are what make this league so special,” Schieman said. “I hope that these broadcasts will continue to tell their stories and showcase just how talented basketball is in the South.”
PrimeTime Players owner and ECBL board member Chris Thomas welcomes the return of the ECBL “Game of the Week.” “We are extremely pleased to have Chris Schieman returning for a second season with the ECBL,” Thomas said. “We owe Chris credit for bringing instant credibility to our league with his great broadcasts. Teams want to play in our league because of his broadcasts, and it says a lot about how great of a job he does.”
