PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The American Athletic Conference will provide live video coverage of all matches in the 2015 American Athletic Conference Tennis Championships at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, including a comprehensive online production of both championship finals in a committed effort to promoting The American's tennis programs.
The 2015 Men's and Women's Tennis Championship finals will be streamed on The American Digital Network, available on web, mobile, tablet and Roku devices. The streams will be produced by L2 Productions via a grant from the United States Tennis Association, and feature a multi-camera shoot and a full graphics package along with commentary and analysis.
"We are pleased to announce this partnership with the United States Tennis Association to enhance our coverage of our men's and women's championships," said American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco. "We have some of the top college players and teams in the country and this partnership will allow us to demonstrate just how strong our conference is. We appreciate the support afforded to our conference and its tennis-playing student-athletes by the USTA."
"We are excited to partner with the American Athletic Conference to carry the Men's and Women's Tennis Championships being held at the University of Tulsa," said Virgil Christian, Senior Director of Market/Facility Development for the USTA. "College tennis is an amazing product and we are thrilled that The American shares this vision."
"We are really looking forward to producing the live broadcast of the American Athletic Conference Tennis Championships," said Scott Rehling, President/Executive Producer of L2 Productions.
