EHF expands Champions League TV coverage in Africa and U.S.

The EHF has struck some last minute deals that will see the Champions League final broadcast live on ESPN360 in the U.S. and on Setanta Africa. ESPN360 is a web based platform that first broadcast handball matches from the Men’s World Championship in January. Setanta Africa is available in 17, sub Saharan African nations, many of which will have live broadcast of club matches for the first time ever.

In addition, ehfTV has decided to include English language commentary from former Irish National team player, Tom O'Brannigan, for their web based platform. Previous broadcast had only included court and crowd audio. The one negative drawback to the expanded coverage is that the live broadcast at will be geoblocked in the U.S. and other countries with TV coverage. On the bright side, the EHF has informed Team Handball News that the on-demand broadcast of the match will still be available at several hours after the match.
