Atlanta’s CW69 to air Georgia Swarm’s championship-winning game in Atlanta market for first time

ATLANTA (April 27, 2020) – The Georgia Swarm are proud to announce their championship-winning game from 2017 will air on Atlanta’s CW69 for the first time ever in the Atlanta market on Saturday, May 2. This broadcast of Game 2 of the 2017 NLL Finals will feature audio commentary from the Swarm general manager, head coach, and players throughout the game.

Airing from 8-10:30 p.m. ET, sports fans in Atlanta can relive an Atlanta championship and watch how the Swarm brought the city its first professional sports world championship in nearly 22 years in a dramatic fashion. Up 1-0 in a best-of-three series against the two-time defending champion Saskatchewan Rush, the Swarm battled until the very last second of regulation to force overtime with seconds left in the game, ultimately scoring the last goal of the season to sweep through the 2017 NLL postseason and earn the franchise its first world championship.

“Atlanta’s CW69 is giving Atlanta sports fans an unprecedented opportunity to see the game where we earned a world championship in just our second season in the market,” Swarm Co-Owner and President Andy Arlotta said. “Being broadcast on local TV for the first time, this is a great introduction to the highest level of professional box lacrosse. Atlanta’s CW69’s production and addition of audio commentary from Swarm personnel make this can’t-miss-television.”

“We are excited to bring this historic sports moment to Atlanta television for the first time. The Georgia Swarm brought a world championship home to our state and made us all proud,” said Tom Canedo, President and General Manager of Atlanta’s CW69.

Swarm Owner and General Manager John Arlotta, Head Coach Ed Comeau, team captain Jordan MacIntosh, 2017 NLL MVP Lyle Thompson, game-winning scorer Miles Thompson, and goaltender Mike Poulin will break down key points of the game, including the play in the final seconds of regulation which forced overtime.
