You might have noticed a trend in recent years: football teams are now starting to look a lot more like their counterparts on television.
In the latest example, a number of football clubs are starting to appear on networks such as NBC and CBS.
It’s a new trend, but the trend isn’t limited to television.
According to data collected by sports analytics company Opta, there’s also a growing trend for football clubs to appear online.
Opta analysed the number of times each team appeared on multiple TV channels in the US, UK and Australia.
The data revealed that, as of February 2018, 22.2 per cent of all football matches aired on television were streamed live online, and the trend is expected to continue, according to the company.
“The number of live online matches will continue to grow over the coming years,” said Ben Lombrini, CEO of Opta.
The majority of the live matches on the TV networks are streamed via mobile apps. “
There’s no denying that online streaming is a big opportunity for the sport, and we believe that as the number grows it will also increase the interest and awareness of the sport.”
The majority of the live matches on the TV networks are streamed via mobile apps.
The sport’s biggest stars, including Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, have all shown an interest in taking the sport online, although they aren’t the only ones to be making their presence felt.
The most-viewed game in the world, which saw Barcelona beat Manchester United 4-1 on aggregate in August, was also streamed live via a variety of streaming apps.
There’s a long way to go before football can truly compete with the likes of football’s other big names, such as rugby league or cricket.
