NCAA Championship Host Sites
Software Setup and Support for Live and Media Stats
StatBroadcast and NCAA Digital have partnered to streamline the delivery of live stats XML to the NCAA's website and digital partners (Turner, CBS, ESPN) for NCAA championship events through the use of StatBroadcast's Broadcastr software in conjunction with StatCrew.
For select NCAA Championships, StatBroadcast and the NCAA have also partnered to provide real-time stats feeds to credentialed media and staff at championship tournament sites via NCAA.COM/MEDIASTATS.
Please note that (when available) StatBroadcast's media stats feeds for NCAA Championships are intended for use by members of the working media and event staff only. They are not meant to be shared with the public viewing audience. Please help us abide by broadcasting contracts by assisting us in this regard.
All tournament host sites will need to send a live XML stats feed of each event to StatBroadcast as well as NCAA.com (Turner Sports or Gametracker) and ESPN (for select championships). The instructions below will assist you in configuring this at your site.
Should you encounter any difficulties or issues during either of these setup processes, please feel free to contact us and we can walk you through the process step-by-step to identify any specific issues relating to your setup.

Setup Instructions for Current StatBroadcast schools
