NORTH CAROLINA is an INTENSE SPORTS STATE with LOYAL, PASSIONATE FANS
The OLD NORTH STATE is the EPICENTER of COLLEGE SPORTS, featuring 19 NCAA D1 schools, 17 NCAA D2 schools, and another 34 schools playing in NCAA D3. That’s a total of 70 COLLEGE ATHLETICS PROGRAMS!
NC also is home to five (5) top-level professional teams (NFL, NBA, NHL, MLS, NWSL), multiple PGA Tour and ATP/WTA events, almost every NASCAR team, and more than two dozen minor league pro teams.
Add in 981 high schools competing in the NCHSAA and NCISAA, and there is no doubt that NORTH CAROLINA is a hotbed for sports fans!
This is the reason BRENTWOOD has created the NORTH CAROLINA SPORTS NETWORK — to tell the stories of North Carolina’s people, places, events and sports like no one else can.
