It’s the best news for football fans in Fiji … FBC has secured three major football leagues from Europe to be shown live and exclusive on free to air television for the first time.
The ever popular Europa League along with the Capital One Cup and English First division will start airing on FBC TV from October.
With this historic move, FBC CEO Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says they hope every football fan and Fijians in general will be able to enjoy top level football without having to fork out any money.
The Europa League, the English First Division and the Capital One Cup formerly known as the Carling Cup have never been broadcasted on free to air television.
Sayed-Khaiyum says this is something for the sports loving people of Fiji.
“This is such a huge event, it is a n incredibly big event. we’ve been working very hard at it for quite a number of months. we noticed that there is no international soccer on any free to air channel in Fiji and its a shame, really”
He adds FBC will not be stopping here and there are more things planned for the people of Fiji.
“So it’s good news if you love football and have wanted to watch top clubs like, AC Milan, Liverpool. Tottenham, Bayern Leverkusen and countless others in action but have not been able to because of money matters.”
Stay tuned to FBC TV, as the Europa League, the English First Division and the Capital Cup comes your way next month.
