Statewide video coverage of all Michigan High School Athletic Association Finals will take place beginning in the 2010-11 school year for the very first time as the MHSAA Network and When We Were Young Productions will collaborate with FOX Sports Detroit to deliver the games in one of the most comprehensive cable and online high school sports packages in the nation.

FOX Sports Detroit and the MHSAA have signed a multi-year extension of an agreement where live coverage of most Football, Boys Basketball and Girls Basketball Finals will take place; and the new arrangement with the MHSAA Network will also plan for live coverage of Finals in Ice Hockey and Girls Volleyball. In addition, FOX Sports Detroit will continue to be the home of the exclusive announcement of the qualifiers and pairings for the MHSAA Football Playoffs on the annual Selection Sunday Show.

The FoxSportsDetroit.com Website becomes the exclusive home to live video streaming of the events that will be shown live on FOX Sports Detroit. MHSAA Finals in all other team sports this year, plus Finals in Track & Field and Swimming & Diving in both peninsulas, all rounds of the Team and Individual Wrestling Finals, and the Semifinal round of the Basketball, Football, Ice Hockey and Volleyball Tournaments will be streamed live on both the FoxSportsDetroit.com and MHSAA.tv Websites. All of the action will be archived online at MHSAA.tv.

All other team Finals - Baseball, Competitive Cheer, Lacrosse, Soccer, Softball and Team Wrestling - as well as the Lower Peninsula Swimming & Diving Finals and the championship matches of the Individual Wrestling Finals and will be shown on a delayed basis on Fox Sports Detroit or FOX Sports Detroit PLUS. Highlights programs of Finals in Bowling, Cross Country, Golf, Gymnastics, Skiing and Tennis will also air. This entire package will also be shown on Comcast Television, which is carrying MHSAA Network regular-season programming and pre-Finals MHSAA Tournament action in a number of sports for the third straight school year.

Comcast will also be the cable home of all of this content on its popular Video On Demand service, including all the championship running events at the MHSAA Track & Field Finals, where each event will be produced individually for on demand enjoyment. MHSAA Network programming on Comcast reaches over one million homes in the southern half of the Lower Peninsula.

"We're pleased that we can now bring most of our Final events to cable and satellite viewers statewide, and that all of our sports will receive coverage on the web through our continued partnership with FOX Sports Detroit," said John E. "Jack" Roberts, Executive Director of the MHSAA. "The MHSAA Network, through the work of When We Were Young Productions, continues to serve high school fans in large numbers, and has proven that our viewers watch and appreciate this content - during the regular season and our tournaments - regardless of who is playing."

"High school sports are as much a part of the fabric of life here in Michigan as any of our pro teams. The passion and excitement is just as engaging, just as real," said Greg Hammaren, Senior Vice President/General Manager, FOX Sports Detroit. "We're immensely proud to extend our wonderful partnership with MHSAA and expand it with the help of When We Were Young Productions and Comcast. This agreement is a shining example of the excellent value and community service that cable providers and FOX Sports Detroit represent."
