Olympic Channel to stream inaugural World Urban Games

The Olympic Channel, the International Olympic Committee’s OTT platform, has reached an agreement with the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) to stream live coverage of the inaugural World Urban Games.

The event will take place in Nagyvásártelep, in the Hungarian capital of Budapest, from September 13-15.

The Games will see athletes compete in six competition sports and two showcase sports, including 3×3 basketball, BMX freestyle, breaking, flying disc, parkour, roller freestyle, indoor rowing and laser run.

The Games will also feature a range of demonstration and initiation events for spectators to try urban sports.

The inaugural World Urban Games had initially been due to take place in Los Angeles but Budapest replaced the US city as host in March. Budapest was also offered the right to stage the second edition of the event in 2021.

The Olympic Channel is available globally and provides year-round coverage of Olympic sports and athletes.
