ATLANTA, Ga. -
 With the start of league play approaching for ASUN Conference Men's & Women's Basketball at the beginning of the New Year, learn more about the conference's partnership with the Worldwide Leader in Sports, ESPN, to produce the entirety of the league's home contests on ESPN+.

Over the past three years, the ASUN has teamed up with ESPN to produce over 1,500 conference contests via the on-line digital platform. This year, conference members will combine to broadcast over 500 events including 60 conference championship events.

The ASUN's partnership with ESPN first began in 1989 with the airing of the league's Men's Basketball Final and has grown exponentially through the conference's ESPN On-Campus Initiative, which began in the fall of 2012. Since its inception, ESPN has collaborated with the ASUN to adopt the conference-wide on-campus production model.
