Video Streaming of Soccer Matches Delayed Due to Flooding

The Luther College sports information department was the first in the Iowa Conference to video stream soccer matches, baseball and softball games. For the past seven years, all of these contests have been streamed via wireless connection.

With the construction of the new baseball and softball stadiums, Luther College made the decision to run fiber to all three athletic facilities. Unfortunately, those plans were put on hold due to the flood. As a result of this minor delay,the Tuesday, Sept. 6 soccer matches will not be video streamed. We will continue to provide live stats. That link is located on our video stream portal.

The fiber was run to all three facilities and the plan is to be connected to the Luther servers soon. Our hope is to resume video streaming at the soccer pitch on Saturday, Sept. 10.

What does this mean for you the fan? Once connected, the streaming will be done via a more reliable hard-wired connection that will allow for a better field placement of the camera.
