The National Arena League announced Wednesday that all games will be streamed on YouTube – well, almost all the games. The only games that will not be streamed on live on YouTube are Columbus Lions home games.
“It became quote obvious that YouTube was the viewing platform for the league,” NAL Director of Broadcasting George Burnbaum said. “Having YouTube so readability available on smart televisions and devices made the decision easy. There is no other video platform used worldwide that is more known and used than YouTube.”
For those looking to watching the games, there are three ways of doing so.
1. Go to YouTube.com, go to live, followed by live sports and look for the NAL game you want to watch.
2. Go to NationalArenaLeague.com, click on fans and access live streams of all games there.
3. Access links to games on team’s social media accounts.
As for Columbus Lions games, games can be streamed by going on either columbuslions.net or NationalArenaLeague.com. For those without the access of the Lions steaming partner, BEAM CTV, they can pay $9.99 to watch one game or $49.99 to watch all Lions home games.
The National Arena League kicks off its inaugural season this Friday, March 17, as the Lions take on the Jacksonville Sharks. Eight teams will compete for the NAL title, which will be held in July.
