Triumph, CW-62 Renew and Expand Local Broadcast Partnership
Spartanburg, SC - The Greenville Triumph Soccer Club and WSPA/WYCW announced Monday a renewal and expansion of their local broadcast partnership for the upcoming 2021 season. The CW-62, which aired seven Triumph matches last season, plans to air 15 of the club's first 19 matches, with additional September/October matches to be announced at a later date.
The two organizations began their partnership to locally air Triumph matches last season, with the Triumph unable to host fans for their home opener due to COVID restrictions. Following a successful debut, The CW-62 aired an additional six matches in 2020 during the club's run to their first USL League One title.
"All of us with the Triumph are excited to expand our partnership with CW-62 and WSPA," said Chairman Joe Erwin. "We see this as a major boost in growing the brand. Given their viewership throughout the Upstate, western North Carolina and northeast Georgia, more fans than ever before will have access to Triumph matches on free TV."
For WSPA/WYCW, the renewal was an opportunity to build on the momentum from the Triumph's title-winning run in 2020."
"WSPA and WYCW are looking forward to supporting another season of Triumph soccer and continuing to bring live, professional matches to our viewers," said station Vice President & General Manager Kenny Lawrence. "The expansion of our partnership with the USL League One Champion Greenville Triumph Soccer Club is something we are proud to announce and happy to offer to our local sports audience."
The 2021 CW-62 slate will begin with the season-opening match in Richmond on April 24th at 6:30 PM. The station will then air three of the following four matches, including the home opener against North Texas on May 1.
