ESPN To Broadcast First College Basketball Game From U.S. Military Aircraft Carrier

ESPN will televise the first men’s college basketball game to be played on the deck of a United States military aircraft carrier when Michigan State takes on North Carolina in the Carrier Classic 11-11-11.

The United States military ship to host the Veteran’s Day event honoring the men and women in the armed forces has yet to be determined but will take place in the San Diego harbor.

The basketball game will be played below the flight deck in the event of rain and there will be seating for approximately 7,000 fans. Unfortunately, tickets will not be for sale.

“We are privileged to be a part of this tremendous initiative honoring our veterans and troops,” said Nick Dawson, ESPN director, programming. “We commend Morale Entertainment, Michigan State University and the University of North Carolina and the United States Navy for their creativity and enthusiasm. It’s exciting to still be able to televise new and unique games after 32 years and more than 9,500 live game telecasts.”

The Carrier Classic 11-11-11 will mark the first men’s college basketball telecast of the 2011-12 season on ESPN or ESPN2.
