Basketball Ireland has joined the streaming revolution in Irish sport with 25 National League sides signing up to a new streaming service for the 2020/21 season.
Fans of the teams will be able to watch all of their home matches this season on Joymo and any away match against a club on the Joymo platform.
Season passes will cost €50, while a game pass is €4 and they will be available to purchase through the club which will retain any profits after the cost of providing the service.
Purchasing a season pass will also allow fans to watch any team streaming via Joymo, both live and on-demand, with over 200 matches set to be streamed this season.
“We have been keen to help clubs to generate funding, particularly as they have been hit hard by the fact spectators aren’t likely to be allowed into arenas for the foreseeable future due to Covid-19,” said Basketball Ireland CEO Bernard O’Byrne.
“This streaming service will also give basketball fans an opportunity to watch their team both live and on-demand. We have linked up clubs with Joymo, who have extensive streaming experience, particularly with indoor sports.”
“We are delighted to agree this partnership with Basketball Ireland and the clubs directly,” added Head of Joymo, Michael Emery.
“We are really looking forward to working with all of the clubs, teams, athletes and fans of this great sport.”
“At Joymo, we believe that sport should own the content they create. That the data, the sponsorship opportunities and the fan engagement strategies should be the clubs, teams and federations to understand, sell and enjoy.”
Joymo was founded in Scandinavia in 2016 and provides streaming, ticketing and other services primarily to grassroots sporting organisations.
