LINCOLN, NE, (June 20, 2023) - For the first time ever, every game from the 2023 ECNL Girls’ and Boys’ playoffs will be livestreamed to a national audience. Hudl is providing The ECNL with Hudl Focus Flex devices—the portable smart camera solution—as well as broadcast software to deliver the best possible viewing experience for a top club and youth soccer organization.

“The ability to have every game live-streamed at the 2023 ECNL Playoffs is a fantastic benefit for all of the family and friends at home,” said Christian Lavers, President of The ECNL. “Now, even those who can’t make the trip to see the special environment of the ECNL and the fantastic quality of play can still support their teams and be a part of the excitement.  Thank you to Hudl for providing such a great service and for further elevating the ECNL players, teams, and clubs.”

The ECNL playoffs will be livestreamed on Team1Sports powered by Hudl TV. Hudl Focus Flex cameras will record matches and livestream them for free using Hudl ProductionTruck broadcast software. Hudl representatives alongside Nutmeg Sports Media will be on-site to ensure all matches are recorded, uploaded to Hudl and available for every team to use in their analysis as they compete for a championship.

"Our partnership with The ECNL has always focused on a commitment to innovating and elevating the game of soccer. We are thrilled to use our cutting-edge smart cameras in Focus Flex and Hudl TV to livestream the playoffs for one of the premier soccer leagues in the country to a national audience," said Rachel Krasnow, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Hudl. "The ECNL is a great partner with some of the strongest viewership at this level. The games are sure to be a pivotal recruiting opportunity, and we're excited to play a part in making these games available to everyone who wants to watch: families, fans, scouts, and beyond."
