St. Bede embarks on new ‘fan experience’

Want to see an athletic event hosted by St. Bede Academy, but you cannot attend? Maybe you are a grandparent and head to warmer weather for the winter, but still want to watch a Bruins home athletic event?

Livestreaming of their games is now possible with Pixellot camera equipment purchased by a generous anonymous donor. The new equipment will allow St. Bede to livestream their onsite athletic events and activities so fans can follow the action even when unable to be there in person.

St. Bede announced Friday it will be providing livestreamed broadcasts for boys and girls basketball, volleyball and football and cover all future sporting events that take place in their gymnasium and on the football field.

“Due the current spectator limitations, it has never been more important to offer livestreamed sporting events to our St. Bede family, friends and fans.” stated Nick McLaughlin, assistant principal and athletic director.

A subscription may be purchased for the viewing of all home games and most away games through the NFHS Network, a national livestreaming service that uses Pixellot camera systems. Pixellot is the leader in US high school sports, partnering up with the NFHS network to create the world’s biggest sports network.

Abbot Philip Davey, OSB stated, “This is a wonderful option for not only our local community but our alumni and Bruin fans who live out of the area and want to tune in for our games.”

More information as well as a streaming schedule can be found at: To cover the lost revenue from ticket and concession sales, St. Bede is reaching out to the community for advertising sponsorship opportunities of the live stream games. Advertising is offered for three months covering the winter and spring sports seasons. Those interested can contact St. Bede at or 815-250-0278.
