ÖFB launches OTT platform for Austrian football in ‘first of its kind’ for Europe

The Austrian Football Federation (ÖFB – Österreichischer Fußball-Bund), the governing body and organiser of Austrian Women’s Bundesliga, the UNIQA ÖFB Cup and national teams, has launched a new streaming platform.

The platform offers comprehensive access and coverage of the men’s, women’s and youth game in Austria. The body claims that the platform, which hosts live matches of national and club football, is the first of its kind in Austria.

In particular, the platform hosts live matches of National teams, Austrian Women’s Bundesliga and the UNIQA ÖFB Cup; coverage of national leagues; and on demand behind-the-scenes content.

The body claims that ÖFB TV represents “a unique football experience” with “unprecedented access to the nation’s game”. The ÖFB TV platform has been developed by StreamAMG, which is currently providing live streaming and video platforms organisations across European football, including the majority of English Premier League clubs. The company also operates The FA Player, and recently launched Matchroom Live.

Bernhard Neuhold, CEO of ÖFB said: “We’re excited to launch ÖFB TV as the new home of Austrian football from the grassroots to the top flight. StreamAMG’s experience makes them the natural choice to help us launch the service, and we’re confident they’ll give us a platform that gives fans a truly unique experience.”

Hugo Sharman, CEO of StreamAMG said: “The new ÖFB TV promises to be a step change for Austrian football, increasing reach and visibility all around the world. The platform is a major first for European football and we’re thrilled to be a part of this exciting project.”
