Sport1 brings Champions League finals in 3D

Chellomedia’s Dutch premium channel Sport1 will broadcast the UEFA Champions League finals in 3D on the Ziggo and UPC networks.

The final between FC Barcelona and Manchester United FC will take place in London on Saturday May 28, 2011, with Sky as the host broadcaster. Sky and other European broadcasters will also transmit the game in 3D.

Just recently, Sky Sports has announced its new three-year deal to continue showing extensive coverage of the UEFA Champions League until 2015.

“We introduced the exceptional quality of HD, then increased the number of live matches and have now pioneered 3D broadcasts. The UEFA Champions League goes from strength to strength and we look forward to extending our relationship with UEFA,” said Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports at the time the deal was sealed.
