Athletics Department Announces New Live Streaming Technology for Basketball and Upcoming Spring Games


West Windsor, N.J. -- The Athletics program at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) has entered a new era. The Athletics Department has acquired cameras to live stream the Vikings’ home games, enabling families and fans near and far to watch their favorite teams in real time anywhere they have internet access.

Athletics Director John Simone said, “We are set to stream all men’s and women’s home basketball games right through February. The quality is excellent.”

The next games to be broadcast are men’s and women’s basketball versus Essex County College on Nov. 16. Games will be archived on the Athletics Department website at the end of the season. Simone notes that currently there is no play-by-play or commentary, but the department hopes to add it for some games in the future.

According to Simone, the live streams began as a pilot project last spring with the broadcast of several Vikings baseball and softball games. The men’s and women’s soccer seasons were on camera this fall, with ten men’s games and six women’s games. Their audience included fans from around New Jersey and the world.

“Live streaming the games has been a learning experience and is getting better with each game and each season. We are now operating well,” Simone said, adding that live streaming plans for the spring include lacrosse in addition to baseball and softball.

The pandemic has proven a perfect time to launch the new technology. “We are operating at 10% capacity in the gym, so we’re especially pleased to be able to offer an alternative that allows fans to see the games from wherever they are,” Simone said.
