Just in time for what will likely shape up to be yet another notable season for Penn Quakers! This new network has two primary benefits – it allows passionate Penn fans to follow their team and check out Ivy League contenders, as well as allowing alumni global access to Penn Athletics. So you can’t make the game one weekend---don’t worry, just tune in from home.

Since most of Penn’s alumni are scattered throughout the world, and hence not in the broadcasting zone for the Quaker games, many have missed out on watching their alma mater toss the pigskin. Well, no more, according to the University of Pennsylvania’s Division of Recreation and Intercollegiate Sports.

The group has partnered with New York-based company NueLion to create the Penn Sports Channel on the Ivy League Network.

“This network isn’t just about streaming high-quality events; it’s about immersing the fans in the University of Pennsylvania

athletic experience and giving them a digital destination that is second to none with the help of live stats, social media integration and more,” said Chris Wagner, executive vice president and co-founder of NeuLion.

Subscriptions are now available at www.IvyLeagueDigitalNetwork.com with plans ranging from yearly passes to a single day pass.

Currently Quaker fans can get a discounted 12 month pass to the network for $71.95 as opposed to the regular price of $89.95. So sign up right away and get access to all your favorite Penn and Ivy League games!

Be sure to tune in as the Quakers have been picked for the fourth year in a row as favorites to win the championship title. The Ivy League Preseason Football Media Poll has 17 voters consisting of two media members from each Ivy League school and one national media representative. 11 voters chose Penn. The Quakers officially kick off their 137th season under the lights at historic Franklin Field when they host Lafayette at 6 p.m. on September 21. As the only night game in the nation’s oldest stadium, it will also mark the first game on the new SprinTurf. Let’s hope it helps the team run in those touchdowns!
