Understanding the ISL: Watch U.S. Team Owners Explain the League

The first meets of the International Swim League aren’t too far away, with the schedule now listed on the ISL website. The very first meet is just a month away, with the Cali Condors, DC Trident, Aqua Centurions, and Energy Standard converging in Indianapolis for an October 5-6 matchup.

This evening, SwimSwam captured some video content from a live discussion with the four U.S.-based team owners: Lenny Krayzelburg (LA Current), Tina Andrew (NY Breakers), Jason Lezak (Cali Condors), and Kaitlin Sandeno (DC Trident). The four managers fleshed out some more details behind their process with recruiting, how scoring will work at meets, how training will look for the athletes, and more.

Tickets for U.S. meets (excluding the final championship in Las Vegas) will go on sale on Friday.

So Eurosport has the broadcasting rights but I believe that I read somewhere that it won’t be broadcast in Australia. Is this true?
