STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ONE World Sports, America's Network for Global Sports, announced today an agreement with Harvard University's Athletics program to air five home games on the network in 2016.  ONE World Sports will feature three men's hockey events and two women's hockey contests, with all five productions simulcast on the Ivy League Digital Network.

"While ice hockey continues to grow in popularity in the United States, it is the leading sport in Canada and there are nearly 1.5 million participants worldwide competing," said Joel Feld, Executive Vice President, Programming & Production. "When we learned that nearly one-third of the ice hockey players at Harvard and its opposing teams were from outside the United States, we saw these collegiate match-ups as a great complement to our current KHL and CHL coverage and a way to showcase these competitions nationally."

The Harvard Men's & Women's Hockey Teams are each ranked in the national polls at No. 7 and No. 8, respectively, and currently sit in the top five of the ECAC Hockey standing. Both programs also boast a top-five defense at the national level.

"We're excited to feature both of our successful ice hockey teams on ONE World Sports and gain exposure for our athletes and programs on a growing distribution network," said Imry Halevi, Director of Multimedia & Production, Harvard University. "We're always looking for new ways to tell our story – what makes Harvard University and the Ivy League different and special in the world of college athletics – and this is a great opportunity to share our story by expanding the reach of our in-house broadcasts."
