BaseballSoftballUK is pleased to announce that WebcastSport has been selected as a new webstreaming partner, and they will deliver a live webstream of the final games from the BSF Co-Ed Slowpitch National Championships on Sunday, 14 August from Farnham Park.
At a minimum, semi-final and final games from the Premier National Championship, featuring the top co-ed slowpitch teams in British softball, will be broadcast live, and other games on the day may be shown as well.
Plans are currently being finalised for an additional live stream this year, and then more regular broadcasts of baseball, fastpitch and slowpitch softball in 2017.
The broadcasts from the Co-ed Slowpitch Nationals can be watched live and free at BSUK.tv, with timings to be confirmed shortly once the tournament schedule has been finalised.
Webcast Sport draws on decades of experience in the world of sports broadcasting, with experience around the globe and at some of the biggest sporting events on offer. Their team has produced live content for some of the biggest names in sports broadcasting, including Sky Sports and BT Sport.
Webcast Sport MD Kevin Magee said: “Webcast Sport is proud to be partnering with BSUK to webcast the upcoming Co-ed Slowpitch Nationals, and we look forward to working closely with BSUK to grow the sport and to bring innovations to webcasting of softball and baseball across 2017 and beyond. With the sports now included in the Tokyo Olympics, it is the perfect time to push the sport through to the next level by showing the next generation how the game is progressing in Britain, and we are planning many more webcasts with BSUK next year.”
BSUK’s Marketing, Communications & Events Officer, Trevor Greenaway-Clissold, said: “This is a really exciting partnership that goes beyond just streaming live games. What has made Webcast Sport stand out from other providers is their desire to be a part of our journey to grow baseball and softball and to get more people playing our sports. We have dipped our toe in the water with regard to streaming games over the last two years and the product Webcast Sport can produce will really take this to the next level.”
The coverage for the BSF Co-Ed Nationals will include multiple camera angles, replays, on-screen graphics and live commentary.
The commentary team for the broadcast will feature Bob Fromer, whose knowledge and involvement with British softball is second to none, and GB Women’s Fastpitch Team Assistant Coach Liz Knight.
