USRowing and Suncoast Aquatic Nature Center Associates (SANCA) are pleased to announce an agreement with ESPN to provide live streaming of racing from the 2019 World Rowing Under 23 Championships July 24-28 at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota, Fla.
USRowing Productions will stream all five days of racing live on ESPN3 – available on the ESPN app – providing USRowing, Team USA, and the sport an opportunity to achieve excellent exposure.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for USRowing to highlight our sport and our athletes on a much bigger platform and to a much larger audience than through our typical USRowing streaming channels,” said USRowing Chief Executive Officer Patrick McNerney. “This is the first step in what will hopefully expand the reach of our many domestic events moving forward.”
ESPN3 is ESPN’s live multi-screen sports network, a destination that delivers thousands of exclusive sports events annually. It is accessible on ESPN.com and the ESPN app across computers, smartphones, tablets and connected streaming devices. The network is available at no additional cost to fans who receive pay TV subscription from an affiliated provider. The network also is available at no cost to U.S. college students and U.S.-based military personnel via computers, smartphones and tablets connected to on-campus educational and on-base military broadband and Wi-Fi networks.
The 2019 World Rowing Under 23 Championships features the world’s top rowers under the age of 23 competing for world championship medals in 22 boat categories. Tickets for the event can be purchased by clicking here.
Situated on Florida’s West Coast just one hour south of Tampa and two hours from Orlando, in beautiful Sarasota, Fla., Nathan Benderson Park is a community park providing public access to a picturesque lake. The venue hosted a spectacular and successful 2017 World Rowing Championships.
