Basketball Finland expands partnership with Solidsport

Basketball Finland stays with Solidsport to continue developing their streaming platform for all their teams and clubs. A partnership that started during 2019 with the purpose of enabling basketball at all levels and since then has delivered impressive results.

Over 19 000 streamed games from 500+ team and club channels, attracting 50 000+ unique viewers. That is the result of the close cooperation between Basketball Finland and their official streaming partner Solidsport. A partnership that now has been renewed for the upcoming season.

We're excited to continue our cooperation with Solidsport and expand watching basketball even more over Finland. Streaming makes it possible for all the basketball fans to see their teams play whenever they want, even after the actual game times and go back to the great memories of the games.
