USL PRO is pleased to announce that every USL PRO regular season and playoff game will stream live on YouTube starting in 2014 via team channels. The largest global video sharing site, YouTube will allow fans worldwide to follow every moment of action during the USL PRO season.
“Online streaming is a vital component of the growth of the league,” USL President Tim Holt said.
“YouTube eliminates barriers that previously stood between fans and the action on the field. We want fans worldwide to take notice of the high quality of play in USL PRO and see the importance of the league in the North American soccer landscape. YouTube makes this process much easier and we’re thrilled to have this relationship.”
The USL PRO YouTube channel will showcase all of the archived and on-demand content produced by each team, including the USL PRO Goal of the Week as well as USL PRO Weekly, an audio podcast that will uncover the personalities behind the league.
* The numbers that are out there, most according to Nielsen, is YouTube reaches more U.S. adults ages 18-34 than any cable network and has more than one billion unique viewers visit YouTube each month. Thats incredible.
* You know how we feel about something like this and you know that we are big proponents of soccer in the digital / social space and this is just one more example of the beautiful game being ahead of the curve in getting this sport out to the people.
What we see from the clubs in MLS and the Premier League, to players individually and even cheerleaders in the Prem League, soccer has done an incredible job of making sure that they are getting out in front, going all out, and doing some really creative things digitally.
Tons of opportunity here. TONS. And this is just the beginning.
