AFI reaches livestreaming agreement with Sweden’s Örebro Black Knights

American Football International, AFI, and Sweden’s Örebro Black Knights have signed an agreement for the exclusive digital distribution of all Örebro’s home games in the Swedish Superserien on to a global audience outside of Sweden through to the end of 2020.

John McKeon, founder and CEO of AFI:

“We are extremely happy to be able to partner with the Black Knights and to showcase their games in Sweden to our global audience. With a shortage of elite American football activity around the world, we will be helping throw the international spotlight on Örebro’s home football games this season.”

Through this agreement, which is for the 2020 season, AFI on its own distribution platform, will handle the distribution and marketing of live broadcasts outside of Sweden while the Black Knights will supply the game commentary in either Swedish or English.

Micael Jönsson, General Manager of the Örebro Black Knights:

“We are proud to be able to be able to play football again and to show our games to a global audience. Signing this deal with AFI to stream our games on is a huge step for us in our quest to help develop and grow the game of American football, not only here in Sweden, but throughout the rest of the world.”
