The Collegiate Chess League's commissioner, Joe Lee, commented on the event: "The PanAms is a highly traditioned college chess event, and we are honored and excited to broadcast this prestigious tournament on the CCL channel and hope to grow college chess by sharing events like this and other college chess tournaments alongside the Collegiate Chess League's main season."

Kostya from ChessDojoLive said "ChessDojo is pumped to cover some high-level OTB chess and to support the growth of the collegiate chess scene." Matan from MasterChess added "MasterChess.org is thrilled to partner with Chess.com and the PanAmerican Intercollegiate Championship.
