Last season Lynx lead the way with streaming our matches to audiences worldwide. For the 2021/22 season, we have teamed up with FreeBySport TV to once again offer live coverage of all of our Gibraltar National League fixtures.
After gaining many new fans last season from around the globe, it was important that we still gave them a platform where they could watch us. With new players, comes new fans and new viewers from more countries. Having the ability to show games live, gives their families the chance to proudly watch them play, and gives sponsors more exposure than ever before. It’s a great chance to give football in Gibraltar even more exposure.
This season will include commentary from former member of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment Steve Brown, who went into broadcasting and journalism 10 years ago.
“I have been following the progress of rock football for many years and during that time the game has improved dramatically. New players joining clubs from overseas and more importantly the emergence of local talent coming through the academies has been encouraging and refreshing to see. So to be asked to join FreeBySport TV for the 2021/22 season as their lead commentator was a privilege and an extremely easy decision for me to make.
Over the past few seasons FreeBySport TV has primarily been a platform for promoting Mons Calpe SC with coverage of all of their games being shown online, but this coming season will be even better with the inclusion of Europa Point FC and Lynx FC, and also talk of possibly one or two more clubs joining forces before the start of the season which begins on October 15th.
For a commentator and supporter of rock football it’s excellent news that those watching on the rock and around the globe will be able to follow the fortunes of their teams online and totally free of charge. There’s never been a better time to follow football on the rock in my opinion, especially with the recent success of Lincoln Red Imps and their progression into the Europa Conference League group stages. And of course the progress of the national game.
A lot of work is going on behind the scenes to make sure we are ready for kick off. Meetings and emails are constantly being passed back and forth in order to make sure we’re all on the same page. It’s the start of something new. And for me personally it’s great that I’m able to use my skills for the good of football on the rock. Enjoy it. It’s free!”
A massive thanks to Steve for taking the time to give us a few words.
It’s amazing that the streaming will be free for fans and so easily accessible for them. That is truly massive! We are really looking forward to being able to chat to even more fans on social media before, during and after the matches. Be sure to get involved!
