INSINC streams Live Men’s Soccer action featuring Canada v Brazil U20s
Wednesday May 17, 2006
Ottawa, Ontario – The Canadian Soccer Association is pleased to announce that the Canadian Men’s U-20 Match against Brazil presented by Sony of Canada on May 22, 2006 in Victoria, BC will be available live via Webcast in broadband video format. Kick off for the sold out match is 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET.
The Webcast is available on a Pay-Per-View rate of $6.95 per connection and will be accessible via the CSA website at www.canadasoccer.com.
“This is truly an exciting project,” said Earl Cochrane, Director of Communications of the CSA. “This is a medium that we have wanted to explore for the non-televised games for some time and since the Canadian fans have expressed their desire to see our teams play more often, we thought that this match would be an ideal one to air via webcast.”
“It is a tremendous opportunity for Canadians to have access to all three games between the Canadian Under-20 team and perennial powerhouse Brazil and hopefully provide viewers a glimpse of what to expect when the FIFA U-20 World Cup comes to Canada next year.”
This broadcast will be Canada Soccer’s second ever live Webcast; the first occurred on March 1, 2006 when Canada dominated Austria 2:0 in Vienna, Austria.
