We continue to receive extremely positive feedback from viewers who've greatly enjoyed the opportunity to see the Prairie Wolves in action on 21 SPORTS," said Bill Luxford, Operations Manager for 5 CITY-TV and 21 SPORTS. "We look forward to helping enhance the game day atmosphere at Abel Stadium with the new video screen and our production capabilities.
