In what is fantastic news for soccer fans and the USL in particular, USL and ESPN3 will be partnering up to broadcast multiple games this season. For those not familiar, ESPN3 is an online only broadcast and streaming platform. The partnership between the two is really a match made in heaven. USL has done amazing things with its Youtube channel, allowing viewers to see highlights and full matches. Partnering with ESPN3 makes perfect sense and as Jake Edwards, USL President put it, “this relationship is another step forward for the League and its digital first philosophy.”
This connection should bring more eyes to USL matches, increase awareness and revenue, and add prestige to USL soccer. Kudos to the a league who continues to grow smartly.
