ICC Europe in partnership with Quipu are delighted to announce the live streaming package for the Pepsi ICC European Division 1 Championship Finals Day in Sussex, England.
In addition selected matches from each of the day’s play are available on the highlights package shown on the ICC Europe YouTube channel and on the tournament website.
Live streaming of both semi-finals and the final under floodlights at The BrightonandHovejobs.com County Ground on 13 July will be available for viewing across Europe at ICC Europe TV .
ICC Europe Development Manager Nick Pink is delighted with the partnership, “This is fantastic news that the game of cricket is going to be available to all those across Europe online, this is a first for ICC Europe and will be showcasing the Pepsi ICC Development Programme” says Pink.
Jack McGill, Managing Director and of CEO Quipu, "We are excited by this opportunity to further demonstrate the broad appeal for international cricket in Europe. Producing high quality digital content across the event, culminating in a day of live streaming from Sussex County Cricket Club, will add considerable value to the tournament, benefiting ICC Europe, the teams, and - most importantly - the fans. It's a pleasure to be working again with the ICC and we're looking forward to a great week of cricket," says McGill.
In addition, the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has signed a deal with YouTube to stream the Investec Ashes Series live in 53 countries across mainland Europe and Latin America on its channel.
Europe will be able to watch coverage of the Investec Ashes Series 2013 on the ECB’s official YouTube channel - www.youtube.com/ecbcricket - as well as one minute highlights of every session.
David Collier, Chief Executive of ECB, said: “This is the ECB’s first venture into live streaming of cricket online, so is ground-breaking territory for us.
“We receive numerous requests from cricket fans in regions where there is no broadcast TV offering, and therefore we are delighted that many will be able to enjoy this Investec Ashes Series.
“It is also important that we play a role in the expansion of the game to countries that do not traditionally play nor watch the sport.”
Steve Nuttall, Senior Director YouTube, said "Our partnership with the ECB expands the reach of the Investec Ashes Series to new countries and to YouTube's younger, connected audience. We're delighted to see more top quality cricket on YouTube."
