Fan Central Mailbag: Your Wimbledon questions answered via video and more


Welcome to another edition of the Fan Central Mailbag where we answer your ESPN questions.

This week we feature the first of our periodic #FCMailbag videos where we highlight a featured fan’s question. Today’s inquiry comes from Kathleen in Massachusetts. Kathleen writes: “Will ESPN be carrying Wimbledon?” It’s a great question. And the short answer is “YES!” Check out the video above for more details and visit ESPN MediaZone for additional information.

Now, on to the rest of your questions:

What was the name of the song played throughout the NBA Finals, usually returning from a commercial break? — Chris, Va.
The name of the song is “Champion” by The Roots. We also suggest checking out our playlists at ESPN’s music page.

Will ESPN be televising games from the Canadian Football League this season? — Bob, WA
Yes. In fact, opening weekend of the Canadian Football League features two contests on ESPN2 tonight and tomorrow: The Winnipeg Blue Bombers host the Montreal Alouettes tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET and the B.C. Lions host the Calgary Stampeders tomorrow at 10 p.m. Additionally, the defending Grey Cup Champion Edmonton Eskimos host the Ottawa REDBLACKS in a Grey Cup rematch tomorrow at 7 p.m. on ESPN3. ESPN’s 2016 CFL schedule includes 86 regular season and postseason games.

Finally, here are a few quick programming reminders for the weekend:

  • ESPN’s exclusive coverage of the UEFA European Football Championship 2016 continues with the knock-out round beginning tomorrow (ESPN, 8:30 a.m.), with the round of 16.
  • This week’s edition of Sunday Night Baseball features Adrian Gonzalez and the Los Angeles Dodgers visiting Andrew McCutchen and the Pittsburgh Pirates (8 p.m. ESPN, ESPN Radio, ESPN Deportes+, ESPN Deportes Radio).
