The FAI has announced details of the Airtricity League’s first-ever streaming service which will deliver Premier Division football matches to supporters in Ireland and around the world.
Each Premier Division fixture, as well as selected FAI Cup matches, will be live streamed via RTÉ Sport’s cameras and commentary team. There will be over 55 matches shown on the platform this season.
Season passes went on sale on Wednesday morning for €55 for supporters in Ireland and €69 for the rest of the world. The FAI says that the revenue created will go to each club.
“We’re absolutely delighted to launch our new streaming service,” explained FAI commercial and marketing director Mark Russell.
“Working with RTÉ Sport and GAAGO will guarantee that we will have a best-in-class product which SSE Airtricity League supporters will be able to enjoy around the world.
“Especially with Covid-19 restrictions, this is the ideal time to launch this service but with the revenue it will generate for the clubs, this is also a major moment for the league and a fantastic opportunity to promote and enhance the domestic game in Ireland.”
