Ashford men's soccer landing a national broadcast

CHARLESTON, S.C. — The Ashford University men’s soccer team has been selected to appear in a pair of Tourbeau’s National Men’s Soccer Game of the Week broadcasts, presented by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and Admiral Soccer.

The initiative, inspired by Tourbeau Sports Group, is the desire of the company to help develop, market and progress the programs, schools, players and the NAIA through a national online broadcast platform to increase and maximize the quality and standard by these parties.

The 12-game broadcast schedule highlights teams from 12 different NAIA conferences and every program nationally ranked in the NAIA Men’s Coaches’ Top 25 national poll or receiving votes from many past NAIA powerhouses. The schedule includes conference season winners, conference titles, national tournament invitees and each of final four team in the 2012 National Championship.

Ashford’s pair of appearances are scheduled for the weekend of October 5-6, when the Saints travel to Jamestown, N.D. to battle the University of Great Falls (Mont.) and Jamestown College (N.D.). The Saints match up with Great Falls on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 3 p.m. before lining up with Jamestown the following afternoon at 1 p.m.

Ashford and Jamestown, a pair of former Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.) foes, met twice last season. AU defeated Jamestown, 2-1, on Oct. 20 in Clinton before Jamestown defeated the Saints, 3-0, for the A.I.I. Men’s Soccer Tournament Championship on Nov. 10 in San Marcos, Calif.

Both teams qualified and won their respective opening round clashes in the 2012 NAIA Men’s Soccer National Championship tournament. #14-seeded Ashford downed Benedictine College (Kan.), 3-2 in Clinton while Jamestown upset No. 15-seed Rocky Mountain (Mont.), 1-0.

The national broadcast productions will include a full on-site professional staff at each venue, each week throughout the fall including multiple camera angles, multiple commentators and producers. A staff of editors will also be available off location to produce highlights and full game footage to local television stations to colleges, as well as a possibility to provide programming for national tape-delayed broadcasts to national soccer television channels, in which TSG is currently working to promote.
