National League announces plans to launch streaming platform this month

The National League has announced plans to launch a streaming platform to show matches, starting later in December.

A soft launch will take place on 10 December, with a full launch two weeks later for the Christmas programme.

Only national division sides will be included in the first phase of the launch, covering the second half of the season.

BT Sport has held broadcasting rights to the National League since 2013, with the current deal running until 2024.

Pilots will be run with National League North and National League South clubs during the second half of the season, with a view to ensuring that games for the two divisions can be streamed for the 2023-24 season.

“A huge amount of work has been ongoing behind the scenes,” said a National League statement.

“The National League would again like to reiterate its commitment to providing a quality streaming platform that benefits all 72 member clubs.” BBC
