CBS SPORTS NETWORK TO REMAIN HOME OF NAVY FOOTBALL

CBS SPORTS, AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE AND NAVY EXTEND PARTNERSHIP THROUGH 2027 SEASON

CBS Sports, the American Athletic Conference and Navy have agreed to a 10-year extension through the 2027 season that continues the long-standing tradition of CBS Sports Network as the home of Navy football. As part of the agreement, CBS Sports Network will continue to televise the majority of Navy home football games, including the Air Force at Navy game.

The network also will televise additional select Navy home athletic events, including basketball, baseball and lacrosse games.

“Navy is an incredible partner and our relationship with the institution and the American Athletic Conference continues to remain of utmost importance to CBS Sports,” said Dan Weinberg, Executive Vice President of Programming, CBS Sports. “We are thrilled to extend our partnership and showcase the best of Navy athletics and their student-athletes.”

"We are pleased to be able to extend the longstanding and mutually beneficial relationship between Navy and CBS Sports," said Mike Aresco, American Athletic Conference Commissioner. "Navy has enjoyed tremendous success on the football field as a member of our conference and we are proud that the competition within our conference will feature the remarkable student-athletes and coaches from the Naval Academy on one of the standard-bearers in sports television."

"I am very pleased that we will continue this long-standing partnership with our great friends at CBS," said Chet Gladchuk, Naval Academy Director of Athletics. "Over the years, CBS has played an integral role in producing a wonderful story that is Navy football and the Naval Academy.  Another decade of sharing our midshipmen with the nation through the eyes of CBS productions for our home games is exciting and much appreciated."

CBS Sports is the home of Service Academy football, televsing most home games for Navy, Army and Air Force. Addiitonally, last year, CBS Sports and Army-Navy agreed to an all-encompassing 10-year deal extending its broadcast, cable and digital rights for the game through 2028.
