From July 13th to 19th the Junior Men’s European Softball Championship 2015 is held in Most, Czech Republic. The best players and possible future international stars will play there and you will have an opportunity to see them live in playoffs with streamed broadcasting. In HD quality and for free.
The Internet television PLAYO.TV gathered good feedback last year when it broadcasted all games at European Softball Men’s Championship in Havlíčkův Brod. Everybody could watch the journey of home side to defend gold medals on their screens in a quality that has not been common before. Three video cameras, graphics, replays, post-game interviews and professional commentary of Jakub Kopřiva (CZE) and Derek O’Brien (CAN)… You can look forward to similar comfort this year as well.
Unlike the recent World Championship in Canada, this broadcasting will be available for free. „The investment to streamed broadcasting is not a cheap one so we considered payments from viewers. However, we want to show the best European Junior softball to the largest crowd possible. The guys deserve the attention and also, it is a chance to show our sport to those fans that would rather watch the games on play-by-play coverage,“ Chairman of Czech Softball Association Gabriel Waage said.
The battle for medals in Most starts on Friday with semifinals. On Saturday, there will be the Final, battle for fifth place and Grand Final. PLAYO.TV will offer all of these games live, but the fans will be able to replay the game again whenever it suits them. The full games will be on website PLAYO.TV or on the official tournament site euro2015.softball.cz.
During the European Championships in Havlíčkův Brod, lots of fans were pleased with professional commentary from Jakub Kopřiva [who plays in Czech Extraliga] and Derek O’Brien, Canadian sport journalist. Both of them will be ready also this time in Most. The fans will have an opportunity to ask questions on chat right during the games.
