LiveScore will provide free coverage of the UEFA Champions League to Irish football fans via Android and iOS streaming software.
Beginning with the 2021/22 season, the three-year deal struck between the real-time sports updates and streaming platform and UEFA will see LiveScore serve as the exclusive free-to-air broadcaster of 104 fixtures per season to Irish viewers, with an additional 33 streamed on a non-exclusive basis.
The package also includes live broadcast of the UEFA Super Cup, whilst fans will be able to watch matches either on their phones or by casting their mobile devices to a television.
“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,” said Ric Leask, Marketing Director at LiveScore.
“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.”
By the conclusion of the 2020/21 season, LiveScore will have streamed over 1,250 matches across 15 different leagues and competitions within Ireland, including comprehensive coverage of Italy’s top-flight Serie A.
In addition to live-streamed match coverage, the latest successful rights acquisition by LiveScore in partnership with SARAN Media Group provides additional content including match highlights, as well as further on-demand content.
Guy-Laurent Epstein, Marketing Director at UEFA, remarked: “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.”
