RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Businesses and non-profit organizations who want to reach thousands of Riverside families and high school sports fans are encouraged to take advantage now of sponsorship opportunities associated with the broadcast of local high school football games this fall.

The games are streamed live on the City of Riverside Youtube channel -- www.YouTube.com/CityofRiverside-- and Facebook -- www.Facebook.com/CityofRiverside -- and shown after the game at 11 p.m. on RiversideTV’s cable channels. RiversideTV programming is available on Channel 3 (Spectrum), Channel 21 (Verizon) and Channel 99 (AT&T).

RiversideTV produces high-quality, multi-camera sports coverage comparable to what viewers see on network television.

Included in all sponsorships is an opening 30-second public service announcement (PSA) and logo featured as part of the on-screen scoreboard graphic for each quarter.
