USL's Indy Eleven renews with local broadcasting partner
Indy Eleven, the Indianapolis-based soccer team that plays in North America's second-tier United Soccer League, has agreed a two-year extension to its broadcasting deal with local television station WISH-TV.
The deal means WISH-TV and its sister channel WNDY will together broadcast 20 matches in the 2019 season, including all 17 of the team's home games and three selected away fixtures.
WISH-TV has been a broadcasting partner of Indy Eleven since 2013.
WISH-TV and WNDY, both owned by Nextar Media Group, will show seven and 13 games respectively in 2019, with the programming sponsored by Honda.
Indy Eleven were founded six years ago and played in the North American Soccer League before switching to the USL last year.
The team currently plays at the Lucas Oil Stadium, the home of the NFL's Indianapolis Colts, but are seeking support from the local government to build a new stadium with surrounding mixed-use development.
