FreeSports has acquired exclusive free to air UK rights for the Global T20 Canada 2019. Coverage of all 22 games will be available on Freeview (64), Sky HD (422), Virgin TV HD (553), FreeSat HD (252) and BT/TalkTalk (95).
The first edition of the tournament was a huge success with the tournament broadcast live on FreeSports. The champions of the inaugural edition, Vancouver Knights will face Toronto Nationals in the opening match of this year’s competition live on FreeSports from 8.50PM on Thursday 25th July.
Richard Webb, COO of FreeSports commented, “We’re delighted to bring UK cricket fans a feast of live and free cricket coverage from Canada this month. Last summer, we had a great response to the Global T20 Canada tournament and we’re delighted to broadcast the second edition to cricket fans once again.”
This year, the tournament will be held in Brampton, instead of King's City. The format of the tournament will be the same as the one in the last season, where six teams face in the league phase. The top four teams will qualify for the playoffs, where the format is similar to IPL and PSL.
The teams this year include Toronto Nationals, Vancouver Knights, Montreal Tigers, Winning Hawks, Edmonton Royals and Brampton Wolves. Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Yuvraj Singh, Brendon McCullum, Shakib Al Hasan, Chris Lynn, and Sunil Narine are some of the superstars who will feature in this Summer’s tournament.
FreeSports will also broadcast live coverage from the European Cricket League three day event beginning Monday 29th July.
