ISL 2016 Broadcast Details

The inaugural edition of the Indian Super League had been a roaring success in India with Indian football fans treated to a level of live footballing action that they had been starved of. The second edition of the ISL is only a few months away but the amount of interest it has already generated with player transfers, the ISL auction and the draft has only served to increase the excitement around the league.

This year’s edition will surely be an improvement over what we witnessed for ISL 1. The marketing for the first edition was spot on and it caught on with the fans of this cricket mad nation in quick time. Once the tournament began, the presence of stellar names from world football as well as Indian players, old and young, helped attract the fans to the stadiums across the world.

Football always had a market in India but with the television channels screening top quality football games from the best leagues in the world meant that people were not prepared to give a chance to the sub-standard football in the local Indian leagues. All that changed with the emergence of the ISL as fans got a major improvement to what was available in the I-league up until then. To add to that, the inexpensive tickets for the games also ensured that most of the games were played in packed stadiums.

When Star Sports became the broadcasting partner for the tournament in India and also decided to become a partner in the overall venture, their marketing of the tournament and the coverage that it received even before a ball was kicked meant that the ISL had already become a game changer. New sponsorship deals for the sides also helped reinforce that belief.

The second edition of the ISL will be broadcast live to over 100 countries in the world. Fox have bought the rights for USA and Australia while CBP have the TV rights for Canada. Middle Eastern and North African viewers can catch all the action live on OSN and Eurosport respectively with the latter also slated to broadcast the tournament in South-East Asia and Continental Europe.

Star Sports will also provide dedicated live streaming services to viewers in India through their app while Fox Sports will do the same for Australia and the US.
