Sports meet banners can make it hard to find information on any sports game or game day.
However, this is about to change.
ESPN’s SportsCenter will be launching a new series of live sports programming to help get you up to speed on what’s happening around the league.
This is a first for ESPN.
The first sports show will be called “The NFL Network’s New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots: The Sports Meet.”
The show will feature live coverage of the New Orleans and New York teams as well as special appearances from Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, Patriots defensive lineman Chandler Jones, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
“We’ve got a bunch of great sports fans in the audience here in New Orleans, and we want to bring them into our sports programming,” said ESPN Senior Vice President of Programming, Joe Buck.
“It’s a great opportunity for people to be able to connect with a network of sports personalities that is doing the same thing we are.”
The NFL has been airing its new network programming for the past three years.
It is one of the most popular sports networks on the planet, and sports fans around the world are eagerly awaiting its debut.
ESPN has been trying to capitalize on this growing interest in sports.
In addition to sports programming, the network will be offering up the next installment of the “The Ultimate Team,” featuring a look at the Super Bowl 50 champion New England Super Bowl LI team.
ESPN will also offer up a new NFL Network-produced series, “The Undefeated,” that will focus on the top players on the NFL’s elite squads.
In a bid to promote the show, ESPN will be holding a special press conference on the sidelines of Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, February 2 at 4 p.m.
Fans will be able take part in a live Q&A with NFL Executive Vice President and General Manager of Programming Mike Mayock.
This event will be followed by the first ever “The Sports Meet” at 1 p.n.m., featuring special appearances by Saints tight ends Graham and Jones.
Fans will also be able see a preview of the first episode of the next season of “SportsCenter.”
On March 2, the first-ever NFL Network “Sports Showcase” will air.
This series will feature a special look at some of the biggest events in sports history.
A full slate of “The Next” will launch in the spring.
