It will broadcast international and continental tournaments on its platform
The World Squash Federation and the Olympic Channel have agreed a broadcasting partnership.
The Olympic Channel will air a number of international and continental tournaments on its digital platform, including men’s, women’s, junior and masters events. In addition to live broadcasts, it will also show highlights, replays, and original programming.
Squash content will join live events such as select Olympic qualifying events, the Five Rings Films signature documentaries, long-and-short-form series, and 80 original series comprising 1,000 episodes of athlete-focused content on the IOC’s premium platform.
WSF CEO William Louis-Marie said: “It is an honour to be collaborating with the Olympic Channel, which we believe will help to bring squash to a wider audience. We are thrilled to continue to showcase our world-class athletes and sport and can’t wait to see what the partnership brings.”
Mark Parkman, general manager of the Olympic Channel, added: “Since launching in 2016, the Olympic Channel has generated more than 2.5 billion video views. We are looking forward to introducing this global audience to a wide range of innovative squash content in collaboration with WSF as we continue to provide free to view access to world class sport programming.”
