French football club Marseille will stream two upcoming matches on Twitch, the first French team to do so on the streaming platform.
The games against Austrian side FC Pinzgau on 19th July and German’s SV Heimstetten on 22nd July will both be available to watch on Marseille’s Twitch channel, as well as on the club’s official website.
The club’s chief marketing and media officer Hervé Philippe said they intend to be “more and more active” on the platform in the coming months.
“This is the very first time that Twitch will broadcast a live match for a Ligue 1 club,” said Corentin Dubois, Twitch’s partnership manager for France. “We are very proud to support Olympique de Marseille in its preparations for next season. Football fans were able to follow their favourite stars on Twitch during the confinement and can continue to support their clubs on the platform.”
Since the resumption of the Premier League in England, Amazon Prime Video UK has streamed matches on Twitch for the first time.
