New Orleans Athletics Makes the Move to ESPN+

Local

NEW ORLEANS – All New Orleans Athletics live-stream sporting events will move to ESPN+ beginning with the 2021 fall season. The Privateers will stream all home men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and baseball contests on the Worldwide Leader.  

New Orleans will enhance its stream with a multi-camera production for all sports, instant replay and a 4K-quality stream. Basketball will have the traditional center court camera, along with baseline video, volleyball will have three cameras, and baseball will add cameras down the first and third base lines. In addition, a production room will be built at Maestri Field for the 2022 campaign. 

I’m so pleased we could join ESPN+, the worldwide leader, as a partner to live-stream Privateer athletic events,” said Tim Duncan, Vice President of Athletics and Recreation. “This move will bring us much more exposure which will aid our coaches in recruiting high-level talent and expand the #NOLAsTeam brand strategy. I’d like to publicly give Kelvin Queliz, Assistant AD for Communications and Marketing, and his team for preparing the department for this move. His acumen in this area is amongst the best and it is easy to see why he is a star within the athletics communications industry!  

“Our goal is to maximize exposure for our student-athletes and program and those four letters carry weight,” said Kelvin Queliz, Assistant Athletic Director for Communications & Marketing. “An upgraded live stream is a crucial recruiting tool and one we put a priority towards investing in. Promoting #NOLAsTeam across all sports is of the utmost importance. We will provide a professional quality content on the industry-leading sports streaming service in the nation.”
