This is confirmed after Göteborg Basketball Festival has chosen to extend its agreement with the continued ambition to live stream and share all matches from the entire festival to its international audience. Now with some exicting news for this years edition.

In 2022, over 2,000 games from 35 courts were broadcasted on Solidsport, making it possible for both players, families and fans to follow the tournament remotely from anywhere in world. Through the partnership with Solidsport, the tournament was able to expand its audience and offer a more comprehensive experience for its viewers, something that Göteborg Basketball Festival now wants to build on.

"We're very happy to continue our collaboration with Solidsport for Göteborg Basketball Festival. Solidsport's technical platform has proven to be perfect for our purpose, which resulted in over 2,000 live broadcasts from the tournament last year. We look forward to working together again this year to offer an equally successful experience for our audience," says Linda Stenman, Project Manager for Göteborg Basketball Festival.

By using AI cameras, the quality of the broadcasts is raised at the same time as it support the tournament organizer, who does not need to hire cameramen for these courts.

It's also in line with our vision to continue building a leading streaming service for Swedish basketball through Basket TV.
