Eleven Sports is to expand its moves to stream live football on Facebook by making today’s Bundesliga match between Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Mönchengladbach available live on the social platform in Poland and Portugal.
The move is the latest joint initiative by Eleven and the Bundesliga in this area. In January, it streamed a match between Bayer 04 Leverkusen and Bayern Munich on the platform in Poland, which it hailed as a global first, and last month a match between Bayern München vs Fortuna Düsseldorf became the first ever Bundesliga match live streamed on Facebook in Portugal.
“Eleven Sports is again leading the way in the innovative delivery of sports content by showcasing another of the biggest games in European football on Facebook. We are always looking to push the boundaries when delivering premium sports content and alongside our partners Bundesliga, we are committed making our content accessible and easy to reach for existing and new audiences,” said group managing director Danny Menken.
