NECC Announces Spring 2021 Postseason Schedule

The NECC officially announced the details of its upcoming spring 2021 postseason schedule today. The conference will be sponsoring championships in each of the five games that it is sponsoring this semester, and will be awarding 19 championships overall. 

Headlining the announcement is that the conference is planning on streaming 68 postseason games across its streaming channels – Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube; as well as on ESTV - the NECC's linear television partner. Each of the conference’s 19 championship finals will be streamed.

‘’We’re excited about our upcoming postseason,” said NECC Commissioner Jacob VanRyn. “I know our players, teams, and schools are definitely fired up. Once again, we're excited to be able to offer more than half of our postseason games on stream. With our talented group of professional casters, we know they're excted and it's going to be really fun. We’re extremely appreciative of our schools’ flexibility to help make our postseason streaming schedule work.”

Each championship-winning team will receive a championship trophy, and each player will receive a shirt recognizing the accomplishment. Thanks to the NECC’s partnership with HyperX, each championship-winning player will also be receiving a Cloud Alpha gaming headset. 

The NECC is currently in its first year of sponsoring esports with players representing more than 80 colleges and universities competing across five titles. The conference spans a nationwide footprint that includes representation from members of NCAA Division I, II, III, NJCAA, and Community College, as well as schools in Canada.  

Since the conference began competition, the NECC has prided itself on providing a first-class experience for its players, while working to create a structure that ensures safe and fair play for all of its competitors.
