By Shantanu Srivastav | May 4, 2018
MLS soccer side Orlando City has scored a multimedia rights deal with YouTube TV for the remainder of the season.
The OTT streaming platform will exclusively livestream all of Orlando’s locally-televised matches including all pre, half and post-game shows. The first match to be broadcast will be the home fixture against Real Salt Lake on Sunday.
Eighteen games in total will now be streamed live on the club’s dedicated YouTube TV channel.
“Our fans are constantly on the move, using different devices and consuming our sport through a variety of channels that fit their lifestyles, and we want to keep pushing the boundaries, giving them opportunities to connect with our team from anywhere,” said Orlando Executive, Chris Gallagher.
“This is an exciting development in the right direction for our club.”
