Ahead of the 2023 AusChamps, the Australian Dragon Boat Federation (AusDBF) and My Sport Live (MSL) are proud to announce a partnership that will see the 2023, 2024 and 2025 championships broadcast online.
The 2023 event will be held at Gateway Lake, Albury Wodonga from 20 – 24 April with competitors making their way from all over the country to take part in the five-day competition.
The broadcasting of the next three AusChamps events have now been secured and will be broadcast via the MSL OTT Platform – the same platform where the 2022 event was successfully streamed.
The partnership includes MSL coming on board as the AusDBF’s official broadcast partner and includes sponsorship of the event itself.
Speaking of the announcement, AusDBF Chair John Holland said it was a watershed announcement for the sport which now has security in showcasing the biggest event on the Australian calendar for another three years.
“It really is wonderful to be able to partner with My Sport Live who we have worked together with for a number of years to bring Dragon Boat racing to everyone across the country and indeed the world,” he said.
“We are so happy to be signing off on the agreement that allows us to plan our long-term broadcast strategy together with the MSL team, so that we can ensure the coverage gets better year-on-year.
“We are looking forward to the event which gets underway tomorrow, and urge everyone to get online and check out the best that our sport has to offer.”
MSL Managing Director Andrew Weiss said that the announcement was a great example of how the company can help sports to better showcase and promote themselves.
“We have loved working with the AusDBF and state bodies over the years and are so pleased to be able to sign this long-term deal to help the sport grow into the future,” he said.
“This is the exact example of what we stand for as an organisation – helping sporting organisations to showcase, promote and commercialise their product through the power of broadcast.
“We have loved working together with the AusDBF in the past, and can’t wait for this week’s event – as well as the other events over the next few years.”
