The European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) has inked a deal with the major sports data collector and analyst company Sportradar to launch its own over-the-top (OTT) streaming service

The OTT platform live streaming will coincide with the start of the fourth round of the 2019 CEV Volleyball Champions League on 20th November. Along with those matches, the platform will also stream CEV volleyball, beach volleyball and snow volleyball competitions.

Sportradar will also work with CEV to allow fans to access an archive of matches from past editions of the CEV Volleyball Champions League and other competitions; these will be available on platform from early 2019.

“We are constantly striving for innovation and are working hard to modernise volleyball and provide fans with the ultimate volleyball experience,” said CEV president Aleksandar Boričić.

 “The launch of this OTT platform is just the reflection of our strategic vision and determination to break new ground in order to bring Volleyball closer to as many people as possible, with a focus on the younger generation.”

Sportradar recently launched their next-level Sportradar OTT featuring a newly developed engine and core that seamlessly connects Sportradar’s range of sports data with video capability. The latest OTT features fully integrated data and video, providing clients with an even greater and more refined ability to enhance the user experience, create content, engage with fans, increase audiences and therefore generate more revenue.

“We have seen the sport of Volleyball growing in the last ten years of working with the CEV and we are honoured to take the next step by joining forces to establish their new OTT platform,” added Rainer Geier Sportradar’s OTT managing director.OTT Platform will cost €7.99 (US$9.10) a month. Fans who register before 31st December will enjoy a free trial month.
