The first match is played on Friday between Crystal Palace and Martin Ødegaard’s Arsenal. Viaplay has taken over the Norwegian PL rights from TV 2 as of this season. 380 matches will be played before the league is rounded off at the end of May next year.
– Viaplay’s platform continuously handles more than ten countries and over 5 million subscribers and has also had some formidable tests carried out in the last year after that Formula 1 was incorporated into the Dutch Viaplay rights. It seems to be going very well, and we also expect this to go smoothly in Norway when this year’s Premier League kicks off on 5 August, says Børge Nielsen to NTB.
He is commercial manager for Viaplay.
