South Korea.- South Korea’s K League will return on Friday and the opening game will be streamed live on YouTube and Twitter.
The country’s premier football competition announced earlier today (May 6) that its opening game would be streamed live on social media and video platforms to generate further interest in the league.
South Korea and the K League are one of the first countries to reintroduce football after a delayed start to the season due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The opening K League game between Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors and Suwon Samsung Bluewings will be streamed on the platforms with full english commentary for international viewers.
It will be the only K League match that will be streamed live on the platform, with the broadcasting rights for the league already sold to multiple countries.
But the reintroduction of the league is likely to provide a boost to global sports betting markets, with South Korea’s Baseball restart earlier this week praised by worldwide betting operators such as William Hill.
