The Great American Rivalry Series to Broadcast DuPont Manual vs. Male Live on Facebook Watch

Friday, October 19th, 2018

LOUISVILLE, Ky.– The Great American Rivalry Series is proud to announce it will broadcast DuPont Manual vs. Male live on Facebook Watch as part of its 2018 season.

2018 marks the 125th year of “The Old Rivalry,” which began in 1893, and The Great American Rivalry Series is celebrating by bringing a highly interactive broadcast live to Facebook Watch. As part of this interactive content, CEEK VR will be capturing virtual reality content in the stands and on the field.

The Crimsons look to end a losing streak to Male, who has dominated the last four years of meetings between the two schools. The Bulldogs come into the game as the 9th ranked team in the state, with an 8-1 overall record, while the Crimsons are 5-3.

The broadcast of this intense matchup will be highly interactive. Fans will have the ability to comment and interact directly with the crew during the broadcast. This interactivity will become part of the broadcast itself, allowing fans to consume and interact with live sports as they happen.

Great American Rivalry Series founder Rick Ford notes, “In our seventh year of live digital broadcasting, we are extremely pleased to be expanding the Series’ reach in a partnership with the two clear leaders in this space, Overtime and Facebook. We see reducing the separation between the viewer and the game as how live sports will be consumed in the future.”

Fans can add these games to their Watchlists by following the Great American Rivalry Series Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/RivalrySeriesLive/.
