Fans wanting to keep up with the Vancouver Stealth this weekend can do so via Twitter.
The Stealth, who are on the road to face the Saskatchewan Rush on Saturday (April 8), are part of the National Lacrosse League’s Game of the Week.
The game is being broadcast through NLL.twitter.com or via @NLL on computers, tablets and mobile devices.
The league announced a two-year live streaming partnership with Twitter last month, for the remainder of the 2017 season, and all of the 2018 season. One West Division and one East Division final will also be streamed as well as the best-of-three Champion’s Cup series.
“This is a historic broadcast relationship that will unlock the great game and we are honoured to partner with Twitter. The future of the sports viewing experience is digital, and this partnership will not only elevate the fan experience by making the game more accessible to audiences, but enable simultaneous real-time conversations and connections with other fans on the same platform,” said Nick Sakiewicz, commissioner of the National Lacrosse League.
“Another critical step in the League’s transformation, this collaboration is a pivotal opportunity to enhance the NLL’s digital presence in North America.”
“We are thrilled to partner with the NLL as Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in North America,” said Anthony Noto, COO at Twitter.
