We've been in touch with the Easterns Tournament Director and we've decided that if we hit $25,000 we'll add Easterns to the schedule. Easterns plays host to the best college teams from the East Coast on March 23-25.
Please note our all-or-nothing target of $20,000 hasn't changed. We're just saying, "We promised to bring more tournaments beyond Stanford and Centex and if we hit $25,000 we're willing to do it more recklessly and less cautiously."
NGN is an evolution of the live streaming NexGen provided for the USAU Club Championships last year. We saw the potential for an online television network that regularly broadcasted ultimate using multi-camera setups, elevated perspective, instant replays and expert commentary.
New technology and the rise of the Internet mean professional production values are no longer the sole domain of major sports networks. We're excited to discover what this means for sports and television and in doing so bring the world's best ultimate into the homes of tens of thousands of people around the world.
We’re asking the ultimate community to help us put these first two tournaments on the air with our promise that we’ll be able to deliver more games and events in the future (think Easterns, ECC, Labor Day, WFDF World Championships, NexGen Tour, etc.) The long-term sustainable success for NGN requires a strong fan base that demands live ultimate—the kind of fan base that can help us raise $20,000.
(3 games/day; 3 pool plays games on Saturday; 1 quarters, 1 semis and finals on Sunday)
