What sports will you show on Viaplay?
We have secured the Icelandic rights for the following sports: Bundesliga, Formula 1, Bundesliga handball, WTA tennis, Major League Baseball, NASCAR, Dutch Eredivisie, Danish Superliga, Swedish Allsvenskan, Division 1 Féminine, French Cup football, the CONCACAF Nations League, the 2021 Copa América and much more.
When will the sports content be available?
Both Bundesliga and Nascar will start during the weekend 16th – 17th of May.
As for the rest of the sports content we don’t know yet. As you know, practically all sports events around the world have been postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. We understand these decisions and the well-being of athletes, audiences and event staff must always be prioritized. We have secured some highly attractive sports rights for Iceland and we look forward to offering this content to viewers in an additional package as soon as this is possible
Why are you launching the sports package when the majority of the sports haven't started yet?
Since Bundesliga is restarting this Saturday (16th of May), we wanted to offer the Icelandic population the possibility to watch it now instead of waiting until more of our sports rights are available.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation we don’t know when we will be able to show the rest of our sports content on Viaplay.
In which language will the commentators be?
Through the hole season selected games will be provided with Icelandic commentators – during this first weekend it will be Dortmunds and Bayern Münchens matches meanwhile the rest will be with English commentators.
