EHL broadcasts around the world




The Euro
Hockey League (EHL) is delighted to announce that the FINAL4 will once again be
broadcast live across the globe as the world’s premier club competition reaches
its climax in Barcelona on May 14 and 15.
The EHL
has agreed a number of key distribution deals that will allow hockey fans and
beyond the chance to witness the climax of what has been an epic ninth edition
of the competition.

EHL
chairman Hans-Erik Tuijt says these deals are another big development for the
competition and for hockey around the world.

“The EHL,
as always, provides a unique and innovative platform for broadcasting the best
club hockey to an even wider audience,” he said. “These agreements in Europe
and beyond show the massive global interest in the competition.” 
The KO16
and KO8 event in Amsterdam bear this out with the competition shown live in
over 70 countries.
Broadcasters
from the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, South Africa and Australia have all
agreed to broadcast matches from the tournament while EverSport will provide a
streaming service to more territories than ever before.
In the
Netherlands, NOS will broadcast the semi-final between SV Kampong and Atlètic
Terrassa live on Saturday on their Studio Sport from 2.15pm (CET) with extended
highlights of Harvestehuder THC vs AH&BC Amsterdam. Both games will be
available to live stream on NOS.nl.
Should a
Dutch side make it through to the GRAND FINAL, NOS will also broadcast that
game live on television on Sunday. At the KO8, Kampong’s win over Rot Weiss
Köln had a peak viewership of 788,000 on NOS.

Sport 1 Germany will broadcast the two Harvestehuder THC games to take place in
Barcelona. They will also show extended highlights of the final if the
Hamburg-based club does not reach that stage.

Catalonian
service Esport 3 will broadcast all four games live on its free to air digital
terrestrial channel.
South
Africa’s SuperSport will broadcast all games live as will BeIN Australia. In
addition, Perform will stream all four games on its betting platforms.
Online,
the EHL and EverSport signed an exclusive one-year deal earlier this year to
expand the reach of the matches to many more regions internationally such as
the Americas and Asia, through the EverSport.tv streaming platform, syndication
network and via their smart embed player.
The games
will be available to be streamed everywhere globally except for the Netherlands and Germany.
“We are
excited to bring the EHL matches to new territories, such as the US, South and
Central Americas and Asia, so fans around the world can watch this exciting
sport,” said Wayne Sieve, CEO of EverSport.
EverSport
is an innovative media company that provides a best-in-breed streaming platform
proven to grow rights holders’ audience and revenues more effectively than any
other platform by harnessing the power of syndication, marketing and social
media.
The Euro
Hockey League will continue to live stream every minute of every game via www.ehlhockey.tv, making the game available for viewers from outside the countries above
to keep up to date with all the action.
