Hundreds of Fairfield County student athletes and leaders have joined the HAN Network for fall sports preview interviews since Wednesday, Aug. 26, when the HAN Cruiser first pulled into Kennedy Stadium in Bridgeport.
The tour continues through (at least) Wednesday, Sept. 2, as the HAN Network visits all 17 FCIAC schools. The HAN Network, which just acquired FCIAC broadcast rights through the spring of 2018, will be broadcasting at least 25 FCIAC sporting events live at HAN.Network and on FCIAC.net. You can see the initial schedule below.

You can follow the HAN Network broadcast team’s trip through the county on the HAN Network Twitter feed or by searching and using the hashtags, #FCIACtour and #HANcruiser. The trip, originally scheduled for five days — with a weekend in between — has been extended to at least Wednesday, Sept. 2, to be sure as many athletes can participate as possible.
On the FCIAC Tour, the HAN Network broadcast team interviewed players from as many sports and other activities as it could. The HAN Cruiser, a mobile studio, spent two hours at each school, recording three to seven minute interviews with team captains, coaches, principals, athletic directors, band captains, student broadcasters and more.
