All the games of Fortuna 1 Liga, the second tier of Polish football, are now available in a pay-per-view model through match centers developed by STATSCORE, the official sports data provider for the competition. Thanks to STATSCORE’s LivematchPro fans can also follow a live data coverage of each of the ties.
The new PPV broadcasts are a result of collaboration among Fortuna 1 Liga, STATSCORE, and Cyfrowy Polsat. The new solution will allow sports fans to watch online any game held within the league, as well as to access top-notch live data coverage of all the matches.
– We’ve listened to the voices of those fans who are interested in broadcasts from specific matches and, in collaboration with our partners, we have developed a solution that meets the fans’ expectations – says Marcin Janicki, chairman of the league.
Sports fans can now buy PPV access to a given match through STATSCORE’s LeagueCenter and TeamCenter platforms, which have been used to collect all the key sports data and statistics from the leagues’ games.
The partnership started in 2020 when Fortuna 1 Liga became the first professional football league to choose STATSCORE’s as their official sports data provider.
– For the last two years, Fortuna 1 Liga fans have been able to find the most important statistics about the games in the STATSCORE’s match centers, LeagueCenter and TeamCenter. Our goal is to gradually expand the features of the match centers, and the integration of the PPV broadcast module with statistical solutions opens up completely new opportunities for fans to follow games and their favorite teams – declares Tomasz Myalski, founder and CEO of STATSCORE.
Selected games can be watched through web browsers on desktop and Android mobile devices.
– Polsat Box Go allows users to watch sports broadcasts on a variety of devices – from the website, through mobile devices, to Smart TV. We are sure that now the users of PPV Fortuna 1 Liga will also be able to appreciate the intuitiveness and convenience of our player – says Grzegorz Janczura, Online Projects Manager at Grupa Polsat, which provides Polsat Box and Polsat Box Go services.
The price of a single broadcast, available in a player made available through Polsat Box Go is just PLN 10. The broadcasts are available here. The user can select whether they want to watch the broadcast, or follow the data coverage provided by STATSCORE’s LivematchPro.
