Can’t make it to The World Games 2022 (TWG 2022) Opening Ceremony presented by Alabama Power tonight? No need to worry—the organizers of the Games announced that WIAT CBS-42 will broadcast the event tonight without commercial interruption.
“This will kick off Alabama’s biggest sports party, and it’s gratifying to know local residents who can’t be inside Protective Stadium can still see this amazing show. The world’s eyes turn to Birmingham and the Opening Ceremony will showcase the city and state of Alabama in epic fashion.”Nick Sellers, CEO, The World Games
CBS-42 will broadcast a one-hour preview show beginning at 7PM.
Near 8PM they will broadcast the Opening Ceremony from Protective Stadium without commercials. The show is expected to run until 10PM.
More good news: The Opening Ceremony is expected to be a sell out!
