MyCujoo enhances ties with Oceania Football Confederation

Sports streaming platform MyCujoo has strengthened its partnership with the Oceania Football Confederation by agreeing a two-year deal with the governing body.

The OFC has been streaming content on MyCujoo since 2017 and will now exclusively use the platform to stream all live content and build its direct-to-consumer relationship with players and fans. Players will be a specific focus for MyCujoo, with new features empowering players featured on the platform to claim their digital profile, allowing them to own and share their individual content.

MyCujoo has an ongoing partnership with the Asian Football Confederation and its OFC service will be provided at no cost to consumers.

The platform last week agreed a four-year deal with the Japanese women’s football league to show content from its second- and third-tier competitions until 2022 as well as cup matches from the first-tier in 2019.
