Over 50,000 users have watched over 14,000 live basketball games across over 700 team and club channels. That is the result of a four-year cooperation between the Swedish Basketball Federation and Solidsport, a partnership that now is extended for three more years.
The Swedish Basketball Federation has since 2018 made it possible to follow basketball live at all levels thanks to a close cooperation with Solidsport. A partnership that began with the ambition to make all basketball available digitally and distribute it on one shared platform.
To date, over 14,000 games have been broadcast live on over 700 team and club channels and has at the same time attracted over 50,000 basketball viewers that together consumed over 375,000 hours of basketball.
We’re very proud and happy about what we have achieved together with Solidsport. In the beginning of our partnership, streaming was something completely new among many of our teams and clubs but today it has become a natural part of our sport, which is a fantastic development.
– Fredrik Joulamo, Secretary General of the Swedish Basketball Federation.
With four successful years in the books, both parties have now agreed on a new three-year agreement with the ambition to take an even bigger step towards the goal of building a digital platform that can distribute all basketball – at all levels.
- It feels very good that we have found a new agreement and can continue to develop this cooperation together. Without saying too much, we also have some exciting news for next season and which we look forward to presenting in more detail after the summer, Joulamo continues.
We're very glad to be able to extend with another of our most important and oldest partners. Swedish Basketball has already come a long way when it comes to streaming and we’re now looking forward to taking even bigger steps together already next season.
– Tobias Thalbäck, CEO of Solidsport.
