RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) and all 14 of its member schools, including Felician University, have partnered with Blue Frame Technology to create the CACC Network, conference commissioner Dan Mara announced on Tuesday.
The partnership will provide all 14 CACC member institutions the opportunity to webstream their home athletics events to one platform, provided by Blue Frame, beginning with the 2018-19 season. Additionally, each of the conference's 16 championship events will be streamed to the platform, along with other original content.
"The CACC's partnership with Blue Frame is an exciting new era for the conference," Mara said. "Fans throughout the CACC will now be able to watch our contests in a variety of ways whether online, at home, or on the go. The CACC Network will provide more visibility for our conference as the league continues to expand its brand and messaging in the digital age."
The new partnership will potentially allow Golden Falcon fans to watch their favorite sports through multiple outlets. Felician will have its own dedicated video portal/web page where fans can watch online as they have in the past. In addition, fans can also catch the games on television through Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku streaming devices.

Golden Falcon faithful are also expected to able to watch games on smartphones and other mobile devices through a to-be-announced mobile application.
"We are very happy to be joining this conference initiative," said Felician director of athletics Ben DiNallo Jr. "This will be a great platform for Golden Falcon fans to support our athletic teams."
More information about programming and links to Felician's video page will be supplied later this summer.
