The EUF are pleased to announce Fanseat as the official media partner for the 2018 outdoor season! The multi-platform subscription service available worldwide will once again be supporting Elite European Ultimate by live streaming nine featured tournaments as well as coverage of many other ‘Sideline View’ events from across the continent! This means over 30 events will be available to view wouldwide both Live and on-demand!
For the first time in Ultimate history, fans will be able to watch over 30 grass and beach Ultimate tournaments Live and on demand. Live streamed with commentators, it will be accessible on the sports entertainment service Fanseat – www.fanseat.com. Fans will need to pay a fee of 7,99€/month (with the first two weeks free) to enjoy all the Ultimate tournaments as well as other Live sports and leagues that Fanseat produce including football, basketball, ice hockey, handball, floorball and more.
The agreement includes bringing veteran ultimate producer, ulti.tv, back to Europe to manage the production of the featured events, whilst EUF ‘Sideline’ events will be produced and managed directly by EUF with a lighter production equipment and crew. Ulti.tv technical manager, Mike Palmer, who was recently responsible for the 2018 World U24 Championships coverage from Perth Australia says, “I am excited to work with the EUF and Fanseat again this season. This is a fantastic opportunity to increase the visibility of the sport we love.”
The nine featured events include three EUCS Regional qualification events, and the European Ultimate Championship Finals in Wroclaw, Poland. We start in just two weeks with Tom’s Tourney, Bruges, offering the chance to see how some of Europe’s top teams are preparing for their appearance at WUCC Cincinnati!
EUF president Andrea Furlan says:
“This strategic partnership with Fanseat allows us not only to produce hundreds of hours of top quality material, but also to distribute free-to-view content, like tournament daily highlights on Facebook! This is probably the best and most effective way to promote the European Ultimate Spirit also outside the community, to recruit new players and to improve the general level watching and learning directly from the best European Teams! In this way, a Fanseat subscription is a support for and an investment in European Ultimate!
The seasons ends in October with a second continental title up for grabs, with the exciting inclusion of the first ever European Beach Ultimate Club Championships. Patrick van der Valk, President of Beach Ultimate Association BULA, says: “It will be great that fans worldwide will be able to watch top level beach ultimate at the first edition of this new championship in Castelldefels, Spain. I full heartedly agree with Andrea Furlan that the partnership with Fanseat is designed to help grow the sport and showcase the great spirit of European (beach) ultimate. I am excited to watch much more (beach) ultimate this year than ever before!”
Continuing from their support last year, Fanseat and the EUF are working together to improve the viewing experience and address user feedback, meaning individual games are easier to search for and watch back on their system! All featured events can be found here, while a full list of events that will be covered will be updated on the EUF website!
