AFI partners with Poland’s Liga Futbolu Amerykańskiego to livestream games

American Football International, AFI, and Poland’s Liga Futbolu Amerykańskiego, LFA, have signed an agreement for the exclusive digital distribution of all LFA games on to a global audience through to the end of 2020.

With this, the LFA joins Finland, Denmark and the four teams in Sweden in partnering with American Football International and to livestream all their games to an international audience.

Through this agreement, which is for the 2020 season, AFI on its own distribution platform, will handle the distribution and marketing of live broadcasts from Poland. Game commentary will either be in Polish or English.

John McKeon, founder and CEO of AFI:

“AFI is fortunate to partner with the LFA to share Poland’s cutting edge American football product with our global audience. Poland’s football is the perfect example of the ‘tip of spear’ when it comes to potential of American football outside of the US.”

In its last act before the new federation in Poland, the American Football Association in PolandZFAP (Związek Futbolu Amerykańskiego w Polsce), takes over as the fully-recognized governing body of Polish American football, the LFA is organizing a season of top division football.

Speaking on behalf of the LFA, Piotr Morko from the Bialystok Lowlanders was happy with the opportunity:

“We are very pleased that we managed to reach an agreement with and that our league games will be broadcast on this platform. It is a great promotion for all teams, but also for all Polish American football.”
