INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Jeff White, President and General Manager for MyINDY-TV 23 and WISH-TV announced today that MyINDY-TV 23 would be the broadcast home for the inaugural 2014 season of Indy Eleven Professional Soccer.
“We are very excited to bring this level of professional soccer into Central Indiana homes,” said Jeff White, president and general manager of MyINDY-TV and WISH-TV. “We look forward to providing viewers a front row seat to all Indy Eleven home games and select away games, during their inaugural 2014 season. MyINDY-TV and WISH-TV have a tradition and the experience in producing some of our communities’ elite events such as Butler Basketball, the 500 Festival Mini Marathon and Parade and the annual Circle City Classic Parade. This Indy Eleven partnership continues our commitment to producing the highest caliber local sports and event programming for our viewers. We look forward to a successful season together.”
“From the start of our discussions, MyINDY-TV 23 has shown tremendous interest not only in airing Indy Eleven matches, but also in helping the club continue our outreach into the community,” said Indy Eleven President/General Manager Peter Wilt. “MyINDY-TV’s airing of our entire home schedule will become the best Indy Eleven commercial possible and show fans across Central Indiana just how unique and passionate an environment our supporters will create game in and game out.”
Soccer fans across Central Indiana will be able to catch more than half the regular season matches in 2014 over the local airwaves thanks to this partnership with Indy Eleven. MyINDY-TV will produce and broadcast Indy Eleven home games from IUPUI’s Michael A. Carroll Stadium live over-the-air in addition to select away contests. A detailed TV broadcast schedule will be unveiled following the release of the 2014 NASL schedule in the coming weeks.
