For the first time in SFL history, the league will use YouTube multiple camera feed technology, allowing us to live stream more than one game at once – on the same channel, with the same chat room. SFL fans will be able to switch back and forth between the game of their choice – both with commentary – providing a glimpse into the league’s future power.
“Soon, all league games will carry play-by-play commentary, and in due time provide analyst commentary as well,” said Commissioner Cameron Irvine. “We have long awaited the technology that allows us to have a NFL Sunday Ticket type experience, putting all of our broadcasts in one place at the same time with our community all in one place to share in all the special moments of our game. This is an exciting launch day to showcase just the start of what a league built around emerging technology and opportunity can do.”
Rabbit will host three non-commentated games after the simulcast, followed by The SFL Today Show with Irvine and Andy Hamilton before Chris Curtis caps the historic day by calling a historic game when Vancouver clashes with San Antonio – two expansion teams clashing for the first time this season, with the winner being awarded their franchises first triumph.
The Game of the Week with Irvine moves to Monday in Week 5, when the 3-1 Atlanta Swarm host the 4-0 Tallahassee Pride. Week 5 concludes with Chicago owner Shann Varner and defensive back Maurice Spurgeon host familiar former teammates in the Carolina Skyhawks with Eric Vinson.
