TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Fans that are unable to attend the games will have numerous opportunities to catch the No. 3 Seminoles in action this season as the Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Tuesday its slate of softball games broadcast on the ESPN family of networks, including ACC Network Extra.
In total, Florida State will have at least 23 of its 56 regular season games broadcast on a variety of platforms, including ESPNU, ACC Network Extra, SEC Network, Pac-12 Network and FloSoftball LIVE.
“It is great how the game of softball has grown and our ability to be seen on TV and online has increased,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “I love that the ACC/Big Ten Challenge will again be broadcast to show the quality competition of the two conferences, and what FloSoftball is doing to promote the game and give coverage of the Mary Nutter Classic and other tournaments is outstanding. Through our radio broadcasts on Seminoles.com and all of our TV and streaming games, there will be plenty of ways for our fans to follow along this season.”
The Noles will make their broadcast debut as ACC Network Extra will stream all four Florida State games of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on February 17-19 with two games each against Nebraska and Northwestern on JoAnne Graf Field.
Five of the six games that the Seminoles will play at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, including matchups against Top 10 teams – No. 6 Michigan, No. 8 UCLA, and No. 10 Arizona – will be broadcast by FloSoftball through their FloSoftball LIVE service. It is a subscription-based service with plans available for $20 per month or $150 per year.

The entire three-game series in Tallahassee against No. 22 Notre Dame will be broadcast, as well as the final game of our road series at Virginia on March 26.
