The NPF Championship Series begins Friday, August 19

National Pro Fastpitch will deliver comprehensive coverage of the 2016 Championship series, beginning with the annual Awards Banquet Thursday night at 8:00 pm ET.  Coverage will include a combination of national television broadcasts on CBS Sports Network and worldwide streaming casts on NPFTV.   All action will be delivered live.

CBS Sports Network will top off season-long coverage of National Pro Fastpitch action by live telecasts of every single scheduled game of the Championship, except Friday night’s Game 2  between #1 seed USSSA Pride and #4 seed Akron Racers.  That game, along with either one or both of Saturday evening’s “If Necessary” games, can be purchased on NPFTV.

CBS Sports is available through most cable packages and can be found on Channel 221 of DIRECTV and Channel 158 of Dish Network.

In addition to special Awards Banquet coverage, NPFTV will also be streaming all post-game press conferences.   All of that access is live on NPFTV, accessible through links provided on the NPF website at or the NPF app.

The banquet and press conferences are free of charge. Friday night’s game and the “If Necessary” games are available for a charge of $4.99 per game.
