October 28, 2021
ECAC Hockey is extending its rights agreement with ESPN+ to stream more than 350 games each season through the 2028-29.
Every regular-season and post-season game (conference and non-conference) hosted at an ECAC Hockey venue will be streamed on ESPN+ with no blackout restrictions. That includes the annual women’s championship, and men’s championship in Lake Placid, N.Y.
“We’re truly excited to announce the extension of our deal with ESPN through the rest of this decade” said ECAC Hockey Commissioner Steve Hagwell”. “ESPN has been a great partner for ECAC Hockey, and we look forward to growing and enhancing our relationship for the benefit of our programmes and fans.”
In addition to the 350+ ECAC Hockey games on ESPN+ each year, the sports streaming service continues to establish itself as the new ‘Home of Hockey’, covering more than 1,000 NHL games this season, along with every game from the Premier Hockey Federation (PHF).
Streaming for ECAC Hockey fans outside of the US will continue to be available through Stretch Internet.
