Belgrade 2013 SPAR Euro Cross to be televised in 11 countries
Eleven International Broadcasters from across the continent will be televising the Belgrade 2013 SPAR European Cross Country Championships this weekend.
National Broadcasters in Belgium, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Spain and United Kingdom plan to show 24 hours of live or delayed coverage of the championships’ 20th edition.
The number of broadcasters is the same as for last year’s event in Budapest although there has been an increase in the intended number of hours to be televised from 17 hours for Budapest 2012 to 24 hours – with Russia’s broadcast intentions still to be confirmed.
European Athletics will also stream live the SPAR European Cross Country Championships on 8 December with English-language commentary.
The live streaming platform at http://eurovision.digotel.com/ea/index.html is provided in partnership with European Athletics' principal sponsor SPAR.
