LiveScore, the global sports media business and one of the world’s leading real-time sports updates and streaming service providers, has announced a three-year rights deal within Ireland to live-stream 137 matches in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) free-to-air on the LiveScore app.

Throughout the term of the three-year deal, commencing at the start of the 2021-22 UCL season, LiveScore will be the exclusive free-to-air broadcaster of 104 UCL fixtures per season in Ireland.

The remaining 33 ties, including the UEFA Champions League final, will also be live-streamed on a non-exclusive basis.

The landmark deal ensures football fans in Ireland will be able to watch every single UCL fixture on a fully free-to-air platform, via the LiveScore app for iOS and Android.

Users will be able to watch the matches on their mobile or tablet devices, with the further option to ‘cast’ the action to their TV screens.

The announcement is the latest boost to Irish football fans, less than a year since LiveScore successfully introduced free-to-air live-streamed football within their app.

By the conclusion of the current 2020-21 campaign, more than 1,250 matches across 15 different leagues and competitions will have been streamed by LiveScore within Ireland this season, including over 300 matches from Italy’s Serie A alone.

Since last October, LiveScore has also simulcast one English Premier League fixture per gameweek free-to-air for app users in Nigeria.

In addition to live-streamed match coverage, the latest successful rights acquisition by LiveScore in partnership with SARAN Media Group provides significant additional content including match highlights, as well as further on-demand content.

Further to the 137 UEFA Champions League fixtures, the package also includes live broadcast of the UEFA Super Cup.

Ric Leask, Marketing Director at LiveScore, said: “We are extremely excited to announce this significant new rights deal, which will provide fully free-to-air live coverage of every single UEFA Champions League match to football fans in Ireland.

“We look forward to being there for every step of the season, as we bring our users closer to the action with our full offering of live-streamed matches and supporting content.”

Guy-Laurent Epstein, Marketing Director at UEFA, said: “UEFA is delighted to welcome LiveScore as the new broadcaster of UEFA Champions League rights in the Republic of Ireland.

“We are excited to see the innovative coverage it will deliver and to bring comprehensive coverage of the best of European club football to Irish fans for free.”

EsportsBets has already established itself as a go-to source for understanding and navigating the growing esports betting space. The esports data provided by Esports Charts will allow EsportsBets.com to further its commitment to offering the most up-to-date information to its vast readership base.

“I’m a great believer in data science and statistics,” said Gianfranco Capozzi, Head of Esports at Catena Media and Product Manager for EsportsBets. “Our users are some of the most inquisitive on the Internet and highly active when it comes to in-depth research — not just on Google, but also on community sites such as Reddit, specialized forums, and social media. This opportunity to cooperate with Esports Charts will give us the chance to back our editorial and publishing efforts, showing that our content is not just sentiment-driven, but also based on actual data.”

Talking more specifically about esports and the gambling markets, Capozzi added:

“Esports bettors are new-age bettors who will ultimately disrupt the market. We need innovation and technology developments able to meet the requirements of this new generation. Thanks to the real numbers and stats tracked by Esports Charts, I am confident that we can also prove to the most skeptical bookmakers, the huge potential of the burgeoning esports market.”

Norwich City Terminates Sponsorship Deal with BK8 Sports
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Norwich City has terminated its sponsorship deal with bookmaker BK8 Sports.

The sponsorship deal, which was confirmed last Monday, had been met with widespread criticism by fans of the club, who had uncovered “sexually provocative” social media marketing campaigns published across BK8’s channels.

“The club and BK8 have taken on board feedback from its supporters and partners, and after continued discussions we have agreed to immediately end the partnership,” Norwich City said.

Ben Kensell, chief operating officer of Norwich City, said: “We have worked hard to build trust and engagement through our countless initiatives with our supporters and partners. We place huge value on our open and honest relationships with our community and supporters.

“As a self-financed club there is always a fine balance between generating the revenue levels required to help maintain that model, whilst working within our visions and values.

“On this occasion, we made an error of judgement. Our standards were not at the levels we demand of our football club.

“We can now only apologise to our supporters and former players, Grant Holt and Darren Eadie, who were across the BK8 promotional launch campaign, for any offence caused.

“We remain highly committed to diversity and equality across our football club and its community. We want to continue to embed a highly inclusive culture across the club, together with an accessible and welcoming environment free of demeaning and discriminatory behaviours.”
