Well, that took long. ESPN 3 has been a haven for sports fanatics who want to see games not offered on traditional ESPN networks. This garnered ESPN 3 a cult following during college sports season. That is why the sporting world went into an uproar when the VMI vs. WCU game that was scheduled for ESPN 3 was moved to ESPN Plus.
The Southern Conference released an official statement on the switch,
“Based on its agreement with the Southern Conference, ESPN has the contractual authority to shift collegiate athletic events from ESPN3 to the newly launched ESPN+. This movement of content is also occurring at many other Division I conferences that partner with ESPN.”
While this hotly anticipated game was moved, not all the games set to air on ESPN 3 will be on ESPN Plus. It comes down to the conference signing up for ESPN Plus.
Here are the conferences confirmed to air on ESPN Plus:
- America East
- Big South
- Big West
- Ivy League
- Missouri Valley
- Southern Conference
- Summit League
- Sun Belt
