Toronto Wolfpack Launch Wolfpack TV
Toronto Wolfpack and StreamAMG have announced the launch of Wolfpack TV, a new web based TV channel giving supporters around the world the opportunity to watch Wolfpack matches.
Wolfpack TV will give supporters outside of Canada and the UK live and on-demand access to all Wolfpack matches during the Betfred Championship regular season (for a subscription fee). Fans all over the world will also have access to free and exclusive content.
Jeff Hagan, Chief Operating Officer of Last Tackle, the Wolfpack’s media arm, said:
“As the world’s first transatlantic professional sports team, Toronto Wolfpack enjoy a growing global reach, in terms of supporter and media interest. We feel we have a responsibility to use this platform to inspire people across the world through our fabulous game, especially youngsters.”
“Our data demonstrates there is an appetite for the Wolfpack from all corners of the globe, and our partnership with StreamAMG allows us to better engage with those fans outside our core markets.”
StreamAMG is part of the Press Association Group of technology and data services, providing companies with online video solutions. In 2017, StreamAMG transformed how sports clubs engage and reach fans through live and on-demand video, now powering OTT (Over-The-Top) TV offerings for 80% of the English Premier League.
Matt McKiernan, General Manager of Sports at StreamAMG commented:
“It’s a privilege to be part of the digital revolution at the Wolfpack. Our goal is for Wolfpack TV to be the world-class Live and On-Demand video destination the club’s fans across the globe deserve.”
Wolfpack TV will have a free subscription service for supporters to access all the Wolfpack’s video content in one place. This includes player and coach interviews, training footage, match highlights, behind the scenes feature pieces and the Wolfpack reality documentary series ‘Last Tackle’.
“The free subscription part of this service will give supporters a first look at a number of our video pieces each week, as well as hosting extended versions of some of our content” Hagan continued.
