The Midnight Sun Game always draws media attention from around the world. The 111th edition of the game was no exception, with media coverage based in Alaska, the continental United States and also in foreign countries. Radio Canada had one of the most impressive pieces on the game, elevating the status of the event to being on par with Brexit and Lebron James’ NBA championship.
Perhaps the most impressive coverage came from TIME Magazine, which highlighted the contest in its list of key summer events. Alongside the article was a beautiful picture of the game taken by Goldpanners intern Tal Norvell.
