University of Pennsylvania to Stream 2013 Ivy Championship this Weekend

BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- The University of Pennsylvania will stream the nine-game Ivy Championship tournament this weekend on Saturday-Sunday, October 19-20 in Philadelphia, Pa. with a Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Streaming Kit.

Fans can access the stream by CLICKING HERE. The cost of viewership is $10 per game, or $25 for the weekend tournament package that includes all 15-games.

Comprised of the varsity teams from Harvard University, Princeton University and Brown University, in addition to the collegiate club programs from Penn, Columbia UniversityDartmouth College and Cornell University, the event marks the only time club and varsity programs in any sport crossover in championship competition. Yale University elected not to compete in the Ivy Championship this year.

It will mark the fourth time the majority of the Ivy League institutions will meet in the sport of water polo, and the second time a collegiate club program will host the tournament. In previous years, Princeton (2010), Harvard (2011) and Yale (2012) hosted the championship.

Last year, the tournament was not played to a conclusion due to severe weather in New Haven, Conn. at Yale forcing teams to return to their campuses early. 

CWPA Southern Division member Princeton and Northern Division members Brown and Harvard should be favored to battle it out for the championship, although the club teams of Penn (Mid-Atlantic Division), Columbia (New York Division), Dartmouth (New England Division) and Cornell (New York Division) could pose a challenge for the three varsity programs with upset potential.

Seeding for the championship was based on the order of finish among the varsity teams at the 2012 CWPA Eastern Championship, while the four club teams are seeded based on their order of finish at the 2012 Ivy Championship. 

The name "Ivy Championship" is used with permission of the Council of Ivy League Presidents ("The Ivy League"). This event is organized by the Collegiate Water Polo Association, which is not affiliated with the Ivy League.

The first water polo conference to provide live-streaming coverage of its championships, the Collegiate Water Polo Association launched a program to supply streaming kits to programs around country to expand the quantity and quality of game coverage available to the general public.

Additional information on the league's streaming program is available on the CWPA Multimedia site located by CLICKING HERE.
