MAC signs 13-year deal with ESPN

BRISTOL, Conn. – Mid-American Conference Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher said the league’s new 13-year media rights agreement with ESPN provides long-term stability to the conference.

The MAC and ESPN officially announced the new deal, which runs through the 2026-27 season, on Tuesday. The contract reworks the final three years of the current eight-year deal the MAC has with the network, and adds 10 years.

The agreement gives ESPN exclusive rights to all MAC sporting events, and guarantees coverage of all football games on one of the ESPN TV networks or its online network, ESPN3.
