Capital University Athletics Expanding Digital and Social Media Reach

By: Sean Neidig, sports information graduate assistant

COLUMBUS, Ohio – As part of an initiative to better serve Capital University Athletics players, coaches and fans, Capital Athletics is expanding its digital presence, specifically on social media.

Crusader fans can now connect with all of their favorite sports by adding Capital on Snapchat via the username “capcrusaders” or by scanning the Snapcode below.

In addition to the exclusive, behind-the-scenes looks on Snapchat, fans can now tune in to Instagram stories for views from the sidelines at Capital events, interviews with Cap coaches and athletes and more exclusive content to connect you better with Crusader Athletics.

Also new this year is livestreaming of every home Capital event not only at but also on Facebook Live, YouTube Live and Twitter via Periscope.  Fans simply have to follow each official Capital Crusaders account or like the page and you will have access to every stream, free of charge, beginning five minutes before each contest until the event is over. A list of official accounts can be found below.

Fans can also connect with individual teams at Capital by following the team’s specific social media accounts. Those handles are available on the team’s page on the athletics website.

Finally, don’t forget that text message updates are available to all fans. By visiting, you can choose which lists you would like to subscribe to and you will be notified of final scores, updates and recaps as soon as they are available.
