WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University football program will have all five of its 2015 home games streamed, free of charge, on the Patriot League Network during the upcoming season. This season will be the first time Hoya home games will be featured on the three-year old online network.
“Forming this relationship with the Patriot League Network is a positive step for the Georgetown University football program,” said Dan O’Neil, Senior Associate Athletics Director for External Affairs. “This platform gives the families of our student-athletes, as well as our alums and fans free weekly access to our games with a high-speed internet connection.”
The Hoyas first Patriot League Network (www.campusinsiders.com/network/patriotleague) game will be on Saturday, September 12 when they host Pioneer League rival Marist at 6 p.m. under the lights at Multi-Sport Field. The following week, GU will host Ivy League foe Dartmouth in a game that will be broadcast by Campus Insiders for PLN.
Georgetown’s homecoming matchup with PL-rival Lafayette (Oct. 10, 2 p.m.) and its ensuing game with Colgate (Oct. 17, 1 p.m.) along with its Senior Day game against Fordham (Nov. 14, Noon) will all be featured. For the third consecutive season, the Blue & Gray’s three league road games will also be featured on the network.
“Our roster is regionally diverse with players representing 22 different states,” Head Coach Rob Sgarlata said. “The relationship with the Patriot League Network will not only help serve the families of our current student-athletes and help reach future generations of Georgetown football players, but will give our nationwide alumni-base the ability to watch us play.”
The Patriot League Network was launched in August 2013 and provides more than 800 live events per season. Fans can view PLN events through a high-speed internet connection via desktop or laptop computers, mobile devices, tablets and over-the-top devices such as Roku. All live games are archived and should generally be available within hours of the conclusion of the live event.
