TIMVISION and the FIGC, the Italian football association, strengthen their partnership by expanding TIM's TV sports offer and extending its sponsorship deal to include women's football.
TIMVISION is now the Title Sponsor of the Serie A Women’s Championship and of the official competitions organised by the FIGC’s female football league for the current and next year’s seasons: the premier championship along with Coppa Italia and Supercoppa. The agreement signed today by TIM CEO Luigi Gubitosi and the FIGC President Gabriele Gravina therefore enriches the existing twenty-year collaboration with the Italian men's football team.
From 2 November TIM’s TV service will air all six games on every matchday of the women’s league, five of which will be live while one will be pre-recorded. Both at home and on the move, viewers will be able to enjoy the matches of the women’s teams of Milan, Juventus, Roma, Fiorentina, Hellas Verona, Sassuolo CF, Inter Milano, Pink Sport Bari, Tavagnacco CF, Orobica Bergamo, Florentia San Gimignano and Empoli Ladies.
Fans of women’s football will also be able to watch highlights at the end of the games as well as a roundup of the day’s goals. TIM's TV service will also broadcast the latter stages of the Coppa Italia as well as the Supercoppa.
The agreement also makes TIMVISION the new “channel of the FIGC”, excluding all the exclusive rights sold by FIGC to RAI and/or SKY: national youth team matches; national youth-league club matches organised by FIGC's Youth and Schools Section; "Azzurri Legends" matches; other original content created by FIGC (e.g. backstage videos of the national teams; other FIGC competitions); selected archive content of the Italian national team.
All FIGC members will also be offered a subscription to TIMVISION.
This important initiative further strengthens TIMVISION’s entertainment offer as the leading aggregator of high-quality digital content, confirming its aim of meeting the varied tastes of the audience with TV series, films, news, and major national and international sports events. With its updated features, TIM Box guarantees the best customer experience on all TVs, drawing on the high quality connectivity of the TIM network to provide an even more complete viewing experience.
TIM's TV service is focusing more and more on football. Thanks to its partnership with Sky and the "TIMVISION and NOW TV- Ticket Sport" offer, it already has the exclusive rights to show 7 out of 10 games on each TIM Serie A matchday, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League, as well as the 2020 European Football Championship and major Premier League and Bundesliga matches.
