EPL Treat On FBC TV

Soccer fans around the country are in for a treat. FBC TV will be televising the English Premier League live.

Prior to previous seasons where only two matches were broadcasted a week, FBC TV will now be showing four live matches every week over the next 41 weeks.

The deal, which was sealed with Digicel Pacific, will showcase 652 shows which will include live games, replays, EPL preview, review and the EPL World shows plus a build up show before every match and a special EPL segment on FBC Sports Lounge which is broadcasted on Thursday nights.

FBC chief executive officer Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said not only would they be bringing the EPL in better sound and picture quality but they will ensure that majority of the soccer fans in the country will witness the prestigious event.

“We will be bringing you all the games, we will make sure that more than 90 per cent of Fiji’s population get to see this game,” he said.

“We will ensure that 100 per cent of Fiji’s population get to hear about the latest scores on the EPL through our radio stations and we will try to ensure to bring more such big sports in the coming future for all Fijians.

“We know for a fact that if FBC does not try hard to do this for the people of Fiji, thousands of Fijians will be deprived from watching big ticket sport items like this.

“It’s about time the people of Fiji got a break and get the service they deserve, so be ready for the greatest soccer action on the face of the earth.

“This is a huge undertaking by FBC as we have the largest coverage of any TV broadcaster in Fiji and we want to be able to do sports broadcast because there have been too many people in Fiji that have been  deprived of international and world class sports in the past.

“As you know, before FBC entered the market, these sorts of sports shows were only shown on paid TV.

“It’s only after we entered the market that the competition has reached such a level where now, because of the introduction of these sports by FBC on free to air TV, other broadcasters are trying very hard to follow suit.”

The first game of the English Premier League will see Manchester United take on Tottenham at Old Trafford at 11.45pm tonight.
