ESPN Player gets US College Football season
August 28, 2020
ESPN Player will bring subscribers the start of the 2020-21 college football beginning this August 30th with the seventh annual Guardian Credit Union FCS Kickoff, as Austin Peay and Central Arkansas play in the Week 0 showcase.
The streaming service will bring coverage of the 2020 NCAA College Football season to fans in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Viewers will have the opportunity to watch college football games live and on demand on desktop, iPad and mobile.
A slate of games follows the Week 0 showcase with the Week 1 schedule featuring four Labor Day Weekend games on ESPN Player. ESPN Player will also have a busy Saturday of showdowns on September 5th, including Eastern Kentucky at Marshall, SMU at Texas State, and Arkansas State at Memphis.
With much of the usual fall college football schedule hit by Covid, ESPN Player will show all the big conferences throughout the 2020-21 season from the fall kick-off through to the National Championship game scheduled for January 11th 2021 and the spring programmes including the Big Ten and Pac-12 conferences.
