SPORTTOTAL AG: NOFV and sporttotal.tv agree long-term cooperation
Cologne, 30 January 2019. The Nordostdeutsche Fußballverband e.V. (NOFV) and sporttotal.tv gmbh, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SPORTTOTAL AG, are to enter into an extensive partnership with the aim of medializing and enhancing visibility of amateur football. The cooperation comprises the NOFV-Oberliga Nord and the NOFV-Oberliga Süd, with the option of extending it to include the home matches of the club VfL 05 Hohenstein-Ernstthal, current German Futsal Champion of the NOFV Futsal Regional League. After the Norddeutscher Fußballverband e.V. and the Westdeutscher Fußballverband e.V., the NOFV is the third of five regional football associations to work together with the sporttotal.tv sport streaming service.
A cooperation already exists with all six general associations of the NOFV, including Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania Football Association, Saxony-Anhalt Football Association, Berlin Football Association, the Brandenburg Football Association, the Thüringer Football Association and the Football Association of Saxony, that will now be reinforced by NOFV as the higher level association.
Erwin Bugar, NOFV President: “Signing the agreement with sporttotal.tv will ensure greater coverage for amateur football in the digital media. We are naturally delighted about this. The compelling broadcasting technology offers our clubs the opportunity of reaching a greater audience and providing the fans with a special service.”
Gerrit Heidemann, sporttotal.tv Director : “We are very pleased to be able to count the NOFV among sporttotal.tv’s partners, and we are looking forward to the agreed cooperation that will greatly enhance the visibility of amateur football. We will partner the associations and their fans to the best of our ability.”
