Kentucky Women’s Soccer to be Featured Twice on SEC Network

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky women’s soccer program in conjunction with its partners at ESPN and the SEC Network have announced that the Wildcats will be featured nationally on two SEC Network telecasts in 2016, in addition to all of its home matches and road Southeastern Conference matches to be featured on the SEC Network+, WatchESPN app and ESPN3.com.

Kentucky will have two national appearances on the SEC Network with its matches against Florida and Alabama making the national stage. The Florida match on Thurs., Sept. 8 will kick off at 7 p.m. ET, and the Alabama match on Sunday, Sept. 18 will kick off at 5 p.m. ET live on the SEC Network. Both matches will take place at the Wendell & Vickie Bell Soccer Complex on the campus of the University of Kentucky in Lexington.

In addition, all home matches for the 2016 season will be shown live on the WatchESPN app and ESPN3, in addition to all road matches in conference play this season.

Extensive coverage of SEC soccer continues for the third year on SEC Network beginning August 14. SEC Network+, the digital extension of SEC Network available on WatchESPN, is set to feature more than 250 matchups, with an additional 50 soccer games and 80 volleyball games slated for the SEC Network television channel and ESPNU.

National coverage of the two sports has quintupled since SEC Network’s launch in 2014 and more than 300 games will be nationally available this season. This year’s schedule also includes one soccer wildcard match on the SEC Network.
