Greenville Triumph SC and WSPA/WYCW have extended their local broadcast agreement, with six additional regular season matches set to air on The CW 62, the club announced Thursday. The announcement comes following the Triumph’s first-ever locally broadcasted match, a 1-0 win over Chattanooga Red Wolves SC last Saturday.
“The community response to the Greenville Triumph playing live on The CW 62 has been overwhelming," said WSPA/WYCW Vice President & General Manager Kenny Lawrence. "In their first televised game, the Triumph were able to reach over 20,000 households in the Greenville/Spartanburg viewing area. We look forward to bringing six more professional soccer matches to our viewers and we wish the Triumph continued success this season.”
Greenville welcomed fans back to Legacy Early College in a limited capacity for the first time last week, but the importance of having a local alternative remains for the club and its supporters not yet ready to return in person.
“Today’s news of an expanded offering of Triumph games viewable locally on WYCW 62 is a great sign of progress for Triumph – and also for soccer fans throughout the upstate," said Triumph Chairman Joe Erwin. "It is a privilege to work with the terrific professionals at WSPA/WYCW.”
Earlier this season, Greenville joined Forward Madison and the Richmond Kickers as USL League One clubs with local broadcast deals. All Triumph matches continue to be available nationwide via streaming on ESPN+ and internationally on YouTube.
