Commenting on the development, Richard Sweeney, COO of FreeSports, said : “This is great news for football fans in the UK with the Polish PKO BP Ekstraklasa set to return to our screens. We’re looking forward to bringing viewers two games live from each round live and free across TV platforms and via our FreeSports app”.
Marcin Animucki, president of Ekstraklasa SA, added: “That’s a unique opportunity for us to present our league to a wide group of football fans in Great Britain. I strongly believe that our competitions which are presented in the world class broadcast standard will attract audiences composed of not only Polish expatriates living in the UK, but also international football fans”.
