Fanseat seals long-term renewal with French Ice Hockey Federation

Global sports streaming service Fanseat has renewed its production and distribution partnership with the French Ice Hockey Federation (FFHG) until 2024.

As part of the agreement, all matches from France’s top-tier Ligue Magnus club competition will be broadcast live on Fanseat for the next five years.

Fanseat will also stream coverage of the Coupe de France competition from the round of 16 stage, as well as Division 1 and 2 fixtures and action from the U20 and U17 Elite championships. More than 1,200 live matches will be made available to subscribers.

Ligue Magnus coverage will be supported by a multi-camera automatic capture system provided by sports technology company PlaySight, which will also provide scoring and data automation, as well as instant playback technology, to FFHG officials. The company will also provide coaches and players with tools to analyse match performance in real time.

The new partnership begins with the opening match of the Ligue Magnus season between Briançon and Amiens on September 10.
