The EHF Director General, Angus Kirkland is very pleased that so many of these events will be on the eurohockeytv channel “It really is great to have so many of our Club events being streamed. Currently we have 55,000 subscribers to eurohockeytv. When we set up our OTT platform with SportRadar we envisioned that our channel would become a home for hockey streaming in Europe. We are working hard with our Member Associations to make this happen! Having these club events on the channel is really great for the fans who cannot travel to the various venues and indeed who are interested in more than their own club’s games! It is quite an undertaking to get 4 of the 10 venues streamed and we hope that we continue to build the channel to ensure that our athletes are showcased to fans all over the world.”
