FISU and Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union announce three-year distribution pact
The International University Sports Federation (FISU) and the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) announced a three-year agreement. The pact allows for the ABU Sports Network to distribute broadcast content from FISU sports events throughout the Asia-Pacific region to its members.
As the global governing body of international university sports, FISU has an impressive collection of international sports events coming up, notably the Summer and Winter Universiades. The largest university multi-sport competitions in the world, the Winter Universiade will take place in Krasnoyarsk, Russian Federation from 2-12 March, while the summer edition will take place in Naples, Italy from 3-14 July 2019. This fall, two emerging FISU sport properties – the University World Cups in 3×3 Basketball and Football, will also be available to ABU members.
The ABU Sports Network is a platform to share and exchange audio video content from major sports events. The platform also offers an enhanced content distribution system where ABU members can freely access daily highlights and will soon offer live streaming.
