Smile…you’re on FASTHockey camera.

The Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League has joined with FASTHockey to broadcast all games of the 2013-14 season on the Internet.

Eight of the nine teams will be participating, with the ninth team expected to join next season. VIJHL vice-president Joe O’Shea said the Peninsula Panthers were unable to come to an agreement with the Panorama Recreation Centre and will not be participating this year.

“This partnership brings a new level of commitment to both the fans and team sponsors,” the VIJHL stated on their website.

“Having FASTHockey, the largest destination for amateur ice hockey videos, will allow access for fans anywhere to watch any game. This means games can be played back, re-watched, and additional information on players will be available.

“Broadcasting each game in video mode is also an advantage for our players,” the league statement noted. “Their development in junior hockey can showcase their skills for scouts who are looking to take them to the next level in their hockey career.”

Team sponsors will also benefit by this development. As well as using print media, there are numerous opportunities for digital media sponsorship with FASTHockey.

Some of the new opportunities include pre-game shows, intermission videos, post-game and in-game sponsorship. Since all these videos are stored on the FASTHockey platform and can be accessed time and time again, this has added value to business sponsorship, the VIJHL website noted.
