**Lausanne, Switzerland: ** The TV coverage of the Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018 will reach no less than 194 countries, thanks to media rights agreements signed by the International Hockey Federation (FIH) with over thirty broadcast partners worldwide.
This is a record increase of almost 150 percent compared to the edition of the event in 2014. Moreover, this event will be shown by over 30 broadcasters, which is twice more than four years ago.
According to FIH, the matches will be streamed on the FIH YouTube Channel in the countries where no media rights agreement is in place.
FIH CEO Thierry Weil said: “It is our will and mission to bring hockey to the attention of always more people. The great increase of countries where it will be possible to watch the Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018 on TV will enable many more fans to follow the action! This will give hockey more exposure than ever before.”
Star Sports India will deliver the host broadcasting operations.
