    Three-Week College Pregame Show to Live Stream on Twitter Will Be On Location From Clemson, Florida State and Virginia Tech

    – Stadium, the first 24/7 multi-platform sports network, today announced a new, fully interactive experience to live stream exclusively on Twitter, “Stadium Kickoff Live.” Beginning on October 20 from The Esso Club in Clemson, South Carolina, Stadium will produce an interactive pregame show that will allow fans to drive the conversation with user-generated questions, topics and commentary. The three-week event will be hosted by veteran broadcaster Doug Gottlieb, along with former ACC stars C.J. Spiller and Eric Wood, who will provide analysis and commentary. Stadium’s own Amina Smith will join the broadcast as a social media correspondent.

    “Twitter has been a tremendous partner for Stadium since our launch and we’re incredibly excited to take the Stadium experience on the road to these great ACC locations, letting fans around the world take part in a fully interactive broadcast on Twitter,” said Dan Scalia, Stadium Managing Director, Revenue.

    Fans can access the live streams via @WatchStadium on Twitter, which are available to a global audience for free to both logged-in and logged-out users on the platform.

    “We are excited to partner with Stadium, an innovative, digital-first property, to bring more football-related content to Twitter,” said Will Exline, Sports Partner Manager at Twitter. “College football is one of the most talked about sports on Twitter and we’re thrilled to partner with Stadium to bring fans closer to the action alongside real-time commentary from fellow fans and experts all in one place on Twitter.”
