Posted: 03-03-2020 | Categories: Parents & Students, School Broadcast Program

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association is pleased to announce a partnership with Varsity Sports Now (VSN) as an additional streaming partner for LHSAA championship events.VSN Louisiana is Louisiana's first OTT (Over-the-Top) subscription video streaming service specializing in broadcasting over 250 Louisiana high school athletic events a year. “The LHSAA is excited to offer live video streaming for sports that have never been streamed before. We are glad to now be able to offer streaming services for almost every sport in our association,” said Eddie Bonine LHSAA Executive Director.

VSN Louisiana was founded in 2018 by veteran broadcast journalist Eric Richey. VSN Louisiana connects fans to their teams with programming that includes professionally produced live games, docuseries, and written journalism found at VSN owned River Parish Football and Nola Catholic League websites. "There is nothing more compelling to athletes, students, family members, alumni, school employees, and fans than seeing the pursuit of a state championship. All too often those special moments are missed and not shared because of travel and other circumstances. We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with the LHSAA to expand our live streaming to state championships and semifinal events that otherwise might not have been covered,” said VSN founder Eric Richey.

Richey's 30 years of experience in sports broadcasting, sponsorship sales, and production has been pivotal in VSN Louisiana's early success that includes the successful production of over 100 prep football games and 20 volleyball games this past fall, sponsorship deals with over 50+ companies, and an Emmy nomination for VSN Louisiana's docuseries 'The Pursuit'. Richey added, “VSN Louisiana is excited to build upon the success we had with the LHSAA live-streaming baseball and volleyball semifinals as well as the swimming State Championships last November. We see this as a significant opportunity in growing our relationship with LHSAA to ensures that more fans can follow these pivotal compelling contests in real time." 

All of VSN's rich library of content including over 1000 on demand videos can be found at and can be accessed by becoming a subscriber at $9.99 a month. All LHSAA championship videos can also be found on the LHSAA LIVE app and website.
