Football fans in India can now tune into Hotstar and Jio TV to watch the fixtures of the Hero I-League which will not be televised. The online broadcast on Hotstar and Jio TV will be underway from tomorrow onwards (January 04, 2019) when Neroca FC face Shillong Lajong in a 2 pm kick-off in Imphal.
“We did not want the fans to miss out on the Hero I-League action. Having worked this out with our commercial partners Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL), we have come to the conclusion that the matches which will not be broadcast, will be available online,” AIFF General Secretary Kushal Das said. “These matches will be shown with commentary, highlights and replays.”
Hero I-League CEO Sunando Dhar added, “The commitment was to show all the matches, and we are happy that they will be live streamed so that football fans can now follow their favourite teams.”
The non-televised matches from Saturday, January 5 onwards, can be viewed on Hotstar or Jio TV, starting with the match between Aizawl FC and Indian Arrows, which kicks off at 2 pm on the same day.
