LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The state's newest soccer club just got a video deal.
The Lansing Ignite have reached an agreement with ESPN to stream their games on ESPN +.
The United Soccer League, which the Ignite is a part of, made the deal and will have every USL game available.
The USL has ten teams total.
“This is a big moment for League One,” said League One Senior Vice President Steven Short. “Placing the league side-by-side with some of the best professional soccer in North America and the rest of the world on ESPN+ will create major visibility to League One’s inaugural season. It will allow us to showcase the best of what this league will have to offer for fans across the United States.”
The games will be produced by USL Productions, the league’s state-of-the-art broadcast production, broadcast and distribution facilities with VISTA WorldLink in south Florida.
ESPN + costs $5 per month or $50 for the year.
Lansing's first game is March 30 in Richmond, Virginia.
