The World Championships, which will take place in Kreischberg (AUT) from 15th – 25th January 2015, mark the first time ever that free-of-charge online live coverage of every final will be provided in full length.

Live broadcasts will be accessible on www.youtube.com/FISSnowboard – except for the host country Austria and territories where exclusive media rights agreements are in place.

Convenient and global access

Marcel Looze, FIS Marketing Manager, said: “With athletes from 45 nations competing, the Snowboard and Freestyle Skiing events hold high appeal in the global skiing community - especially amongst a young fan base. Benefitting from Infront’s production capabilities and digital media expertise, we have developed a strong concept to leverage the potential of our existing YouTube channels and make this FIS World Championships available to fans all around the world.”

Bruno Marty, Executive Director Winter Sports at Infront, said: “Our aim is always to bring sport to the fans and to offer the most convenient means of access to enjoy the best live experience. We are proud to be supporting FIS in this pilot scheme.”
