Negotiations ‘ongoing’ for OFC Champions League rights

The Oceania Football Confederation has said negotiations are ongoing with broadcasters in Samoa, American Samoa, Fiji and New Zealand for broadcast rights to its OFC Champions League club competition.

The OFC Champions League is the premier club football tournament in Oceania and welcomes teams from across the continent.

Tukaha Mua, head of television at OFC, said although discussions are continuing, he is “hopeful of getting across the line with a full line-up of broadcasters on all platforms across the region”.

The OFC has already reached rights agreements with broadcasters in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji and Tahiti.

Commercial broadcaster EMTV will broadcast coverage in Papua New Guinea, Solomon Telekom TTV will broadcast the tournament in the Solomon Islands and public-service broadcaster VBTC will cover the competition in Vanuatu.

Viewers in Tahiti can access coverage on TNTV, while commercial broadcaster Fiji TV will televise the tournament in Fiji.

Fans can also access live streaming of the Champions League group stage via the OFC’s official YouTube channel.
