Charlotte – The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) announces its broadcast schedule for the 2019 football season. This year’s schedule of games will be televised live on Aspire TV. This will be the fourth year of a partnership between the CIAA & Aspire TV to provide live broadcast coverage across multiple platforms.
“We’re excited to partner with Aspire TV again this year to broadcast five football games throughout the season. It’s a great opportunity to enhance the visibility of our institutions, coaches, and student-athletes while providing us an opportunity to connect with our passionate fans across the country and celebrate the rich tradition of the CIAA,” said CIAA Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams.
The five-game conference slate will include four (4) regular season football games as well as the 2019 CIAA Football Championship held in Salem, VA on November 16.
