Edison, N.J. - The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) has announced that the 2012 Men's Soccer Championship Final will be telecast live on ESPN3 at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10.
"The MAAC is excited to continue to grow its partnership with the greatest brand in college sports broadcasting," noted MAAC Commissioner Richard J. Ensor. "The opportunity for a national telecast of men's soccer on ESPN3 is important to the conference as it adds more broadcast opportunities to its six-year agreement with ESPN on its various national platforms."
This marks the second straight year the Men's Soccer Final will be showcased on ESPN3. ESPN3 is currently available to 73 million homes and approximately 21 million U.S. college students and U.S.-based military personnel.
The site of the Championship has been changed to Tenney Stadium at Leonidoff Field on the campus of Marist College. Tenney Stadium also hosted the event in 2008 when the Final was televised on ESPNU.
"Tenney Stadium is the perfect college sports venue, the right size for college soccer and I know that the Marist College community will support the event with enthusiasm," said Ensor.
The semifinals will be held on Thursday, Nov. 8 with game times set for 7 and 9 p.m. Both contests will be broadcast live on MAAC.TV.
All-session and individual game tickets are available now at maac.ticketleap.com.
