ELEVEN SPORTS DELIVERS HISTORIC OLYMPIC MOMENT FOR SINGAPOREANS

By | Latest News, News | No Comments

In its first Olympic Games as an Official Broadcast Partner, ELEVEN SPORTS delivered more than 371 hours of compelling sports action from PyeongChang 2018.

The comprehensive coverage, which was delivered across Eleven Sports 1 and 2, online, through the Eleven Sports app and on Facebook Live, included an average of more than nine hours of LIVE coverage per day.

Fans in Singapore cumulatively watched almost 32,000 hours of content across these platforms.

PyeongChang 2018 carried extra significance for Singapore as it was also the first ever Olympic Winter Games in which a Singaporean athlete competed, with Cheyenne Goh racing in Short Track Speed Skating.

ELEVEN SPORTS is extremely proud to be an Official Olympic Broadcast Partner for the first time and given that previous editions of the Olympic Winter Games have barely been covered, if covered at all in Singapore, our comprehensive, multi-platform exposure of the Games has been a huge step up,” said Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS. “We have given the Winter Games a platform across the country as well as delivering free and flexible access to the most significant moment in Singapore’s Winter Olympic history for all Singaporeans.”

As well as home favourite Cheyenne Goh, fans in Singapore also enjoyed golden moments from superstars such as Chloe Kim, who became the youngest snowboarder to win Olympic gold; Ester Ledecka, who became the first female to claim gold in two different sports at the same Winter Games; and Norway’s Marit Bjoergen who became the most successful Winter Olympian of all time.
