Global sports provider Eleven Sports has today announced a partnership with ACB Liga Endesa to live stream Real Madrid vs FC Barcelona on Facebook and Twitter this Sunday (12th November 2017).
For the first time ever the showcase ‘El Clasico’ basketball fixture will be streamed live across a number of Eleven Sports markets.
The action is set to be streamed live on Facebook in Belgium, Italy, Singapore, Taiwan and the USA while fans in Belgium and the USA will also be able to watch the action live via Twitter.
The live streams in Belgium, Italy, and the U.S. will feature local language commentary in line with Eleven’s strategy to localise content and all markets will be using their social media platforms to enhance the event experience with clips and posts for fans in each specific domestic market.
Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, Eleven Sports, said: “We have seen some excellent results from our Ivy League Football live streams on Twitter in the US and we are delighted to strike this latest partnership to ensure we continue to deliver exciting content to fans in innovative ways.
“Our aim is to bring sport to fans everywhere in ways that they want to consume it. This partnership helps us achieve that while also providing a fantastic opportunity for Eleven Sports and the ACB to reach new, diverse audiences, including those with a low barrier to entry.”
The announcement of this agreement comes after a successful partnership with Twitter to live stream Ivy League Football in the US in October and November 2017.
