CHAPEL HILL — The North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) announced some exciting news last week about continued live coverage of state championship events.

The NCHSAA and Sinclair Broadcasting Group renewed their agreement to produce and broadcast the NCHSAA Football and Basketball State Championship games across North Carolina through 2022.

“After a successful two-year contract, we are pleased to continue our partnership with Sinclair and their local stations,” said Commissioner Que Tucker. “Sinclair has been a wonderful friend to the Association and our member schools. We are excited to be able to continue bringing the passion and intensity of the NCHSAA State Championships to fans across the state who are unable to attend the games in person. Over the next three years, we look forward to this continued working relationship as we showcase our football and basketball championships.”

The broadcasts have become an increasingly popular venue across the Tar Heel state.

“We are very excited to continue our relationship with the NCHSAA for another three years,” said Steve Mann, Executive Director for Sinclair’s High School Sports Division. “We take great pride in highlighting these outstanding student athletes as they work towards being crowned North Carolina state champions!”

The NCHSAA Football and Basketball State Championships will air on selected Sinclair stations and affiliates across North Carolina. Game schedules and affiliates will be announced the week leading up to the championships through the NCHSAA Website and local game affiliates.

Last year, Sinclair’s High School Sports Division provided 517 live high school event broadcasts, spanning more than 1,400 hours of programming. In addition to North Carolina, the company broadcast state championship games in Maryland, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah.

The NCHSAA partnership with the NFHS Network continues for other playoff and championship events across the state. More information about these events can be found at NFHSNetwork.com/NCHSAA.
