Women's United Soccer Association Announces TNT and CNN/SI 22-Game Television Schedule


NEW YORK, New York (Tuesday, February 20, 2001) - The Women's United Soccer Association has announced that Turner Network Television (TNT) and CNN/Sports Illustrated (CNN/SI) will combine to televise 22 WUSA games this year, including two semi-final games and the WUSA championship game. TNT will kick off the season on April 14 with the WUSA's inaugural game (Washington Freedom vs. Bay Area CyberRays) and will air a total of 11 games, including the final, while CNN/SI will televise 11 regular season games. This is the first of a four-year, exclusive national cable television agreement between the WUSA, TNT and CNN/SI. Turner Sports President Mark Lazarus and WUSA Chief of Television and Marketing Lee Berke announced the WUSA television schedule today.

"Our partnership with the WUSA will enable us to bring professional women's soccer to millions of fans nationally on TNT and CNN/Sports Illustrated, and locally through our cable operator partnerships," said Lazarus. "And we'll enrich the viewing experience by boosting the outstanding quality of play with production and digital enhancements."

"We're delighted to finalize a multi-year agreement with Turner Broadcasting," said Berke. "They are a leader in televised sports programming and have a reputation for producing outstanding work."
