“This is a fantastic opportunity for British American Football to reach a new audience. The two games we have selected for streaming represent the best we have to offer – the premiership final is the pinnacle of our National Leagues adult contact competition, while the U19 final is a showcase of our future talent. We’d like to thank the BBC for this opportunity and Onside Productions for their support to make it happen.”
