Svenska Spel Sport & Casino Partners with Sportscom for Live Commentary
Svenska Spel Sport & Casino has entered into a collaboration with the newly launched Sportscom, an audio service platform specializing in live commentary for football and ice hockey events. This partnership coincides with the return of the Premier League, with Sportscom set to debut its live commentary on Friday, August 11, featuring the match between Burnley and Manchester City.
For igaming enthusiasts and sports followers, particularly those keen on English football and Swedish hockey, Sportscom offers a dedicated channel to tune in to real-time game insights. The service ensures that followers of Stryktipset can keep track of the Premier League’s action, including the inaugural round, directly via Sportscom.
Commentators including Jesper Hussfeldt, Robert Perlskog, Pelle Bäckman, and Daniel Kristiansson are slated to guide listeners through the initial weekend’s matches. Notably, Jesper Hussfeldt will cover the opening game.
Beyond its Premier League coverage, Sportscom also plans to provide commentary for all SHL matches when the Swedish hockey season commences in the fall.
Detailed information about the service: Starting August 2023, Sportscom subscribers can access live commentary of all Premier League matches. Additionally, they can expect SHL coverage from September 2023 and Allsvenskan coverage beginning April 2024. The app, which facilitates access to these live commentaries, will be available for download from Wednesday, August 9.
“We know that many of our players do not follow the matches on TV for various reasons, so there is now a service where you can follow the Premier League, and the coupon, directly in radio format is fantastic. A really fun collaboration to be part of right from the start, which at the same time enables several of our players to follow the matches live,” says Monica Sandström, Brand manager Stryktipset, Svenska Spel Sport & Casino.
“For our players, the SHL premiere marks the start of the season in earnest. There has been a lack of a service on the market that offers precisely listening to the matches for those who do not have the opportunity to follow in place or otherwise. Extra fun for us as the main sponsor of Swedish ice hockey to be involved from the beginning,” says Ken Söderqvist, Brand manager Oddset, Svenska Spel Sport & Casino.
