In the 1st 3 weeks — beginning Saturday, August 17 (7 a.m., Liverpool-Stoke City) –NBC Sports Group will televise 17 Premier League matches. All Premier League games will be livestreamed on NBC Sports Live Extra. An interactive game finder at www.NBCSports.com will enable fans to find those games on TV, online and on mobile devices.

Two other local connections: Mike Carey ’01 will work on the production end of the show, while lead analyst Arlo White is a Westport resident.

The former Gatorade National High School Player of the Year has made a name for himself as a quick-witted, clever and very perceptive sportscaster. Click here to see some of his talents.
