The platform will ensure fans worldwide can follow the team competitions across a range of devices, starting with this weekend’s Davis Cup World Group semifinals and playoff ties.

The ITF’s global media rights partner beIN Sports have released the streaming rights in order to enable this platform to go live.  

Sportradar, the Swiss-based sports data and content specialists, will use its OTT solution to produce and deliver the live and on-demand Davis Cup streams at https://video.daviscup.com.

Fans will have the ability to purchase coverage ranging from individual ties to a whole round of ties, or an annual package covering all rounds of Davis Cup.  

In conjunction, the ITF has been working with Sportradar to launch a desktop live scoring centre and redesigned dedicated mobile app for Davis Cup.

The live streaming platform, live scoring centre and app will be available for Fed Cup in the coming weeks.  

This weekend’s semifinals see Belgium host Australia in Brussels and Serbia travel to Lille to face France to contest a place in the Davis Cup Final in November, with eight World Group play-off ties also taking place.

The new streaming platform will also be available for November’s Fed Cup Final in Minsk between Belarus and the USA.

“The ITF’s goal has always been to bring Davis Cup and Fed Cup by BNP Paribas closer to every tennis fan, no matter where they are in the world or what device they are using," ITF President David Haggerty said. "Sportradar AG continues to fulfil our growing expectations in a developing sports marketplace. Through our streaming and digital media offering, they are helping us grow our fan base, deliver engagement and insight and ultimately enhance the largest annual international team competitions in sport.”
