It’s a privilege to help tell the story of Fairfield University and our incredible student-athletes, and we are proud to take another step forward in presenting that story to our global community of alumni, friends, and fans.

— Zach Dayton, Deputy Director of Athletics

The Stags Sports Network has announced its broadcast schedule for the upcoming spring season. Every home event held on campus in the sports of men’s and women’s lacrosse, baseball, softball and tennis will air live — a tentative total of 61 events between Feb. 16 and May 21.

“It is our unwavering aspiration to be the premier in-house network in our conference and beyond, both in the terms of the quality and quantity of our broadcasts,” said Deputy Director of Athletics Zach Dayton. “It’s a privilege to help tell the story of Fairfield University and our incredible student-athletes, and we are proud to take another step forward in presenting that story to our global community of alumni, friends, and fans.”

Games will air on a variety of platforms under the Stags Sports Network banner. All home Fairfield baseball, softball, and tennis events (on campus only) will stream live and free of charge on the flagship Stags Sports Network. Fairfield men’s lacrosse will also play its eight home outings on SSN with all contests simulcast worldwide on the Lax Sports Network. Fairfield women’s lacrosse home games will air on the ESPN family of networks.

The in-house, multi-platform broadcast entity of Fairfield University Athletics, the Stags Sports Network broadcast 51 events this past fall, including every home event hosted by the Stags on campus in the sports of field hockey, soccer, volleyball, swimming and diving, and tennis. Thus far in the winter season, Fairfield has produced all 13 home men’s and women’s basketball games at Webster Bank Arena for the ESPN family of networks and is slated to do so for the remaining 14 home outings.

SSN produced 106 games from nine different on-campus venues in 2020-21, including a stretch of 89 games in 84 days from March through May. Stags Sports Network broadcasts were viewed globally on ESPN+, ESPN3, Facebook Live, the Lax Sports Network and MAAC.tv.
