OneFootball to live stream Serie A matches in UK and Ireland

August 13, 2022

The Italian Serie A and digital soccer platform OneFootball have expanded their collaboration to offer live streaming in the UK and Ireland. 

The two-year agreement, reached by the media rights partner of the Italian top division, Infront, supplements the deal with pay-TV broadcaster BT Sport and includes 38 live matches every season made available to OneFootball members for no cost until 2023/24. 

The majority of games will occur on Saturday nights, with a small number occurring during midweek rounds. The first match to be covered by the agreement is an opening round match between Inter Milan, the reigning Serie A champion, and Lecce, the Serie B champion.

OneFootball already offers highlights of all 380 Serie A matches on its platform, while it is the league’s official ‘video moments’ digital collectables partner. Starting this season, OneFootball will mint 1,300 non-fungible tokens (NFTs) based on the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Suppercoppa Italiana for fans to buy, collect, and trade.

Commenting on the deal, Luigi de Servio, Serie A’s Chief Executive, said:

“We’re proud, together with OneFootball, to be broadening the reach and accessibility of Serie A around the world. We have no doubt that our upcoming seasons will offer many thrilling games and exciting highlights, now available for British and Irish fans to enjoy.”

Nikolaus von Doetinchem, Vice President of OTT Streaming and Media rights at OneFootball added:

“At OneFootball, we love Italian soccer, and are equally passionate about bringing fans around the world closer to the clubs and leagues they love. This deal with Serie A is the latest in our growing portfolio of distribution deals and indicative of our mission to bring our young, mobile-first user base closer to the action.

“We know that Italy’s Serie A is renowned and much loved by fans across the globe. We can’t wait to bring fans in the UK and Ireland the highs and lows of this iconic league week in, week out.”

FC Barcelona announce another sale of 24.5% of Barça Studios to Orpheus Media Barcelona has officially announced a transaction worth €100 million ($102.9 million), in which the Spanish soccer giants would give up a 24.5% ownership in its internal Barça Studios content centre to Orpheus Media, a production business led by Catalan media billionaire Jaume Roures. The transaction follows one similar to it with Socios that was finalised last month. That agreement involved a comparable price and stake in the business, valuing Barça Studios at €400 million (US$411 million). The deal is the club's fourth capital infusion through what club president Joan Laporta refers to as "economic levers" meant to strengthen Barca's financial position and sign players who will fall within the LaLiga salary ceiling for the 2022–23 season. Barca claims that the agreement was reached with the consent of its members and was approved by the general assembly in October 2021. Although this monetary infusion will make it simpler for some new players to be formally available for selection, the club did not clarify that this fourth lever would allow them to register every new recruit with La Liga. Enlightening about the deal, a club statement said: "FC Barcelona announces the sale of 24.5% of Barça Studios to the company Orpheus Media, managed by Mr. Jaume Roures, an audiovisual production company with a long history of producing content, for €100 million. The agreement complements the one signed on 29 July with Socios.com and will help to accelerate the growth of the club's digital, NFT and Web 3 strategy. "The sale was conducted under authorization of the General Assembly of FC Barcelona Members last October 23. With this investment the strategic partners in Barça Studios show confidence in the value of the project and the future of digital content in the world of sport."
