In the Spring and Summer of 2017 the league will broadcast 10 regular season games, plus the ECBL Championship and All Star Game. Chris Schieman Media will broadcast all 10 regular season games as well as the ECBL Championship on June 24th. The 2017 ECBL All Star Game will be produced by NetCast Sports.
Calling the action will be broadcasting veteran Chris Schieman. “It’s exciting to be working again with the ECBL,” Schieman said. “The league has been a very loyal client and I have made upgrades to equipment to ensure this year’s broadcasts look great.” The broadcasts will feature high-definition (when available) and an increased emphasis on player information and statistics.
The entire 2017 ECBL “Game of the Week” schedule is as follows:
March 19th: NC Coyotes vs Petersburg Cavaliers
March 25th: Florence Wildcats at Prime Time Players
April 2nd: Hampton Roads Warriors at Carolina Kings
April 22nd: SC All-Stars at Augusta Eagles
April 29th: Charlotte Golden Bulls at Savannah Storm
May 6th: Charlotte Golden Bulls at SC Upstate Redhawks
May 13th: Petersburg Cavaliers at Florence Wildcats
May 20th: Hampton Roads Warriors at Prime Time Players
May 21st: Augusta Eagles at Carolina Crusaders
May 27th: Carolina Thunder at High Point Hawks
June 24th: ECBL Championship at TBD
Each game will be available live and on-demand on the ECBL YouTube. Broadcast dates and teams are subject to change, however each team in the league will have at least one broadcast.
“It’s vital for the league to broadcast each team,” Schieman said. “These broadcasts have led directly to increased sponsorship opportunities, but more importantly, they are helping ECBL players sign pro contracts in other leagues. We want to make sure each player has a showcase game to be seen on the largest video platform in the world, YouTube.”
The ECBL enters its third season as one of the most stable minor leagues in professional basketball. The league returns most teams from last season and has added teams in Lumberton, NC, Charlotte, NC, Greenville, NC, Hampton Roads, VA, Florence, SC and Dillon, SC.
