How You Can Follow The University Cup

In his post over at the The CIS Blog David Kilfoil does a better job than I would have been able to do at summing up all of the ways you can follow the University Cup.

So how can you follow the University Cup? Well, if you're in Fredericton and can't get/afford a ticket, there is a beer tent with a big screen in the parking lot closest to the Aitken University Centre. All of the games will be webcast on ssncanada.ca. Long-time broadcaster Dave Ritchie is returning to call all the games on CHSR-FM 97.9, and they will also be audiocasting the games and intermissions on chsrfm.ca. I'll be helping out with the radio games as well as co-hosting a liveblog for each game with Christopher Cameron, editor of the UNB student paper The Brunswickan, here on CISBlog.ca. Rogers Sportsnet will be broadcasting the second Saturday game (4:30 pm ADT) and the championship game on Sunday (8:00 pm ADT). And a local firm has developed a free cell phone app at www.2012univcup.com.
Also, a twitter account - @2012CISHockey - has been created solely for the University Cup. It will provide up-to-date scores, news, and highlights for every game.
