Eurovision Sport in European Taekwondo Championships coup

Published

Eurovision Sport, the new free digital streaming platform, is delighted to announce that it will broadcast Europe Taekwondo’s European Senior Championships G4 and European Para Taekwondo Championships G4/G2 in Belgrade, Serbia this week.

Eurovision Sport’s coverage of the Championships, which run from 9 to 12 May, showcases the platform’s expanding portfolio and underlines its dedication to live exposure of the very best European sporting events to audiences across the region and beyond.

Complementary to Eurovision Sport’s coverage, EBU Members will offer an additional layer of visibility of the Championships across their respective platforms.

Scheduling the Championships just weeks before the start of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games guarantees that teams will be in in full preparation mode, testing strategies and tactics to see what adjustments have to be made before the Games in Paris.

Eurovision Sport is a pioneer in live sports broadcasting making thousands of hours of content available free-to-air in a single digital destination.

Developed by the EBU, the platform complements the coverage provided by its public service media members, democratizing access to sport. Since its launch in February, e-racing, rowing, horse racing and motor sport have been added to its portfolio.

Last month, Eurovision Sport announced a landmark deal to broadcast five Billie Jean King Cup Qualifier ties, the first-ever tennis tournament to be featured on Eurovision Sport.

EBU Sport Executive Director Glen Killane said: “We are excited to welcome European Taekwondo onto the Eurovision Sport Platform where Taekwondo will sit alongside other prominent Olympic Sports. Eurovision Sport is fast becoming The destination for sports fans and we are certain that this new partnership will bring the sport of Taekwondo to new fans all over Europe and the World.”

Europe Taekwondo’s President Sakis Pragalos added: “We started our collaboration with Eurovision Sport in 2014 and this platform is the natural continuation for the even greater promotion of the sport to the public. EBU’s decision to develop a free-to-play platform finds us strong supporters as Taekwondo is not at the top of TV networks’ preferences but is in the hearts of millions of athletes practicing across Europe. Our next goal is to develop more taekwondo content for the platform and to make sure that our sport will build its own fan base in the four years between the Olympic Games.”
