MBABANE – Do you know about FIFA + Live-streaming?

Football lovers will today taste some new experience in watching domestic league game, as the Royal Leopard and Mbabane Swallows clash will be streamed live. This follows that Eswatini Football Association (EFA) will today be piloting the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) + live-streaming platform. According to a notice by the local football custodian, EFA will execute the project on behalf of FIFA in the MTN Premier League games set to be played at Mavuso Sports Centre. The FIFA + live-streaming service was announced by the Zurich-based soccer association last season in April. “The above-mentioned Eswatini FIFA+ Project production partner, Destiny Group Visuals has been mandated to the FIFA+ Project with the match scheduled for this forthcoming Sunday, May 7, 2023 (today) between Royal Leopard and  Mbabane  Swallows scheduled to kick off at 3pm,” read part off the notice.

According to Fierce Video Sports, it is a ‘free to view online’ ad-supported service, available on the web without a sign-in as well as in Android and iOS apps, combining live coverage of matches. Furthermore, it aims to provide more exposure to leagues with lower profiles. That is what FIFA+Live-streaming is about. Our investigations revealed that the live-streaming platform by FIFA has already viewed as many games from different parts of the world. Destiny Group Visuals, with its implementing partner Eleven Sports, have been afforded the responsibility to live stream the PLE games and this starts with today’s match between Leopard and Swallows at 3pm. PLE denotes Premier League of Eswatini. Notable is that during PLE Special Meeting held in March this year, EFA noted that FIFA + will be fully implemented next season.

Currently, PLE is in partnership with Eswatini Television Authority (ESTVA) for taking clips of the elite league games which are aired in the broadcaster’s weekly highlights sport show. Media Mora was also roped in last year to take some footage which is broadcasted on SuperSport Pay-per view channel. According to the notice released by EFA Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Frederick Mngomezulu, the clash between the defending champions and Swallows has been already set on FIFA + platform and could be accessible through the link; https://www.fifa.com/fifaplus/en/live/event/2PHqBcFWkVvQ6x82nyUoMJZIeQi. “The match can be alternatively accessed live and free at fifaplus.com or through a download of the FIFA+ App, available for iOS and Android,” further reads the notice. There was no immediate response from the PLE about the latest news.
