The FAI has announced a new broadcast deal with RTÈ Sport which will see 60+ Premier Division matches broadcast live across RTÈ and WATCHLOI up until the mid-season break in June.
The WATCHLOI platform will return with the free-to-air offering of the FAI President’s Cup between Shamrock Rovers and the Lilywhites on Friday, March 12th at 7.45pm.
Friday Night Football coverage on RTE commences with the SSE Airtricity Premier Division game between Shamrock Rovers and St Patrick’s Athletic on Friday, March 19th, followed by Waterford v Sligo Rovers on Friday, March 26th, and our league game with Shamrock Rovers in Tallaght on April 2nd.
LOITV will also stream all matches across the SSE Airtricity First Division and the SSE Airtricity Women’s National League with Pixellot cameras to be installed in every ground ahead of the 2021 season.
The Pixellot system uses artificial intelligence with HD cameras to deliver a top-quality viewing experience with the cameras used in many leagues across the world. The streaming service will also be available to the coaching and analysis staff at all clubs.
RTÈ Sport will cover all production costs for WATCHLOI with all profits from the platform set to go straight to the Premier Division clubs. Season ticket holders will be contacted in due course with more information regarding season passes for WATCHLOI and LOITV.
