WORCESTER, MA. — The Massachusetts Pirates are excited to announce a partnership with Eleven Sports for the 2021 season.

“It’s a pleasure to be partnered up again with Eleven Sports,” Yatim told masspiratesfootball.com. “It was a great experience for us in 2019. The added exposure and visibility for our brand is vital to the growth of our product. We certainly are happy to have our games aired again on Eleven Sports and are looking forward to having an exciting season in 2021.”
Steve Sera, the owner and executive producer of Moody Street TV, sees the partnership as a way to bring games to fans on a national level.
“We are looking forward to broadcasting our home games again on Eleven Sports, USA. With the games scheduled to air on the network towards the end of the week, it not only our gives fans the opportunity to catch the game if they missed it on NESN, but with the Eleven Sports USA national footprint, it gives our players, their families and Pirates fans who live outside of New England a way to stay on board with the Pirates.”
