AFTN will be broadcasters for UBC Thunderbirds men’s and women’s soccer matches for 2017 season
We’re delighted to announce that AFTN will be providing the broadcasting for UBC Thunderbirds men’s and women’s home soccer matches this season, as well as increasing our coverage of the teams here on the site.
Following on from our work with TSS Rovers this past PDL season, Gideon Hill we be providing the play by play, with myself (Michael McColl) primarily doing the colour commentary. Other members of the AFTN team will be helping out when required.

With the first three matches already under our belts this past weekend, we’ll be bringing you commentary on UBC home matches for both teams throughout the regular season and into the playoffs.
You can catch all the action, from every team, on CanadaWest.TV. There’s early bird pricing on until September 6th, with soccer specific packages starting from $29.99 for the season. Find all the details and buy your package HERE.
Better yet, head along to the matches in person. Admission is $10 and there’s a number of double headers of men’s and women’s matches on over the course of the season. Check GoThunderbirds.ca for all the schedules.
Both teams are on the road this weekend, with the men heading to UBC Okanagan Heat on Saturday and Thompson Rivers Wolfpack on Sunday. The women kick off their regular season with a trip to Victoria Vikes on Saturday afternoon.
We’re really looking forward to working with both teams this season, and you can check out all our latest and previous UBC Thunderbirds coverage HERE.
Will away match audio be broadcast from an underground bunker watching the feed on an old black and white 12″ monitor with a 5-10 second delay? Cause I wouldn’t have it any other way.
