WHY 49?

Welcome to 49 Sports. We are a group of sports journalists, photographers and designers aiming to provide the most in-depth and widespread coverage of Canadian university sports and Canadian stories in the NCAA.

The idea behind this website is to give university and college sports the attention it deserves, and often does not get. 49 Sports offers coverage that is unmatched anywhere north of the 49th parallel.

Why 49? Well, we are covering U SPORTS and Canadian stories in the NCAA. The border which splits the two countries is the 49th parallel, and is something the two nations have in common. With that, we value our unity as a continent and our common goal to promote the best sporting landmass on earth, hence the number 49.

Welcome to 49-sport.com, we’re glad you’re here.

We are also happy to be directly affiliated with The Puck Authority, a well established, in depth hockey website that has an abundance of writers across the continent. They focus on the professional aspects of the game, while we are mainly collegiate. The Puck Authority is a great partner to have as we support both the professional and educational side of sports.
