NECW Announces TV Deal with Comcast SportsNet

In front of a sold out crowd on the occasion of its 9th anniversary, New England Championship Wrestling announced tonight that it will be making its television debut with a weekly one hour broadcast on Comcast SportsNet New England beginning January 2010.

At the start of NECW’s BIRTHDAY BASH 9: RAGE IN A CAGE, All of NECW stars and staff surrounded the ring. NECW’s owners addressed the crowd and played a video of the official announcement from NECW ownership and management, along with Comcast SportsNet executives.

In making the announcement, NECW Co-Owner & Promoter, Sheldon Goldberg said, “I do not hesitate to say that this is the biggest moment in the 9 year history of our company. Since New England Championship Wrestling was founded back in August of 2000, one of our most important goals was to find a vehicle to bring our brand of professional wrestling to television viewers throughout New England.

This announcement today doesn’t just give NECW that vehicle. It gives us the Rolls Royce of vehicles. Comcast SportsNet is the premiere name in regional sports television and we could not be happier to make our television home here.”

New England Championship Wrestling will be airing on Friday afternoons from 4 to 5 PM EST beginning Friday, January 8, 2010.

Comcast SportsNet is available throughout the six New England states in approximately 4.8 million homes and nationally in roughly 38 million homes.


NECW also announced that Paul Richard, former New England promoter for the original ECW, was named to the newly created post of General Manager, which is a business position as opposed to a storyline role. Richard had been working with NECW on local promotions and as a consultant.

Video of the Comcast SportsNet announcement has been posted on NECW's web site at www.NECWwrestling.com.
