The championship game on 20 July in each of the three divisions of play will, for the third consecutive year at a WFDF World Championship event, be livestreamed for free on the IOC’s global Olympic Channel digital platform (olympicchannel.com and mobile apps for iOS and Android) and The World Games Channel online (https://www.theworldgames.org/channel.)

“We are excited to announce our impressive roster of broadcast, streaming, and media partners for the WU24s,” said WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch. “In this age where fans want real-time access to their favorite sports from wherever they may be viewing, we are thrilled to have so many avenues for viewers worldwide to watch the games. It is especially fitting to be able to showcase the up and coming generation of elite players across such a broad spectrum of media.”

Distribution partner Beijing Chenyang Sports is, for the first time ever at a WFDF World Championship event, livestreaming the Arena field with Chinese Mandarin commentary throughout the People's Republic of China on the platform with a partner Migu, a specialized subsidiary of China Mobile operating in the Internet space and the integration of various digital contents. It is China Mobile’s sole entity for distributing digital contents including music, videos, reading, games and comics, and it is the official Telecom Carrier Immersion Platform of NBA China. In addition to MiGu, CCTV.com, the new media platform of CCTV, will also steam the final game of the each division. Panke Media in China will be the exclusive social media partner in China, engaging audiences with previews, scores, highlights, and in-depth contents on the WeChat platform and its website.

WFDF Executive Producer and Managing Director of Broadcasting and Marketing Tim Rockwood, who heads up the production team, said: “As our coverage capabilities grow, we feel it’s crucial to broadcast in multiple languages and attract new audiences in our member countries and beyond.”
