Facebook Will Stream Its First Football Game Tonight

Facebook will for the first time live streame a larger professional football match, when Manchester United takes against Everton tonight.

Today at 9 p.m. Danish time are footballer Wayne Rooney’s Testimonial match game, and it will be with to write history.

The match between Manchester United and Everton will be English as the first professional football game, which will be streamed on Facebook.

The fight will be available on both Manchester United and Wayne Rooney’s Facebook page, and thus can more than 1.7 billion people all over the world for the first time to follow such a huge sporting event, directly on Facebook.

Although there is talk of a first timer for Facebook, so have several of the other social platforms already tried their hand at live-streaming of major sports events.

The video giant YouTube livestreamed both the Champions League and Europa League finals in football on their page, and also has an agreement with Twitter to stream major sporting events such as Baseball, NFL, NHL and more.

But for Facebook, it is a new thing, and it will be interesting to see if this is something they will continue on several occasions.

In the first place it is, however, tonight’s match in Manchester, which is in honor of United’s captain and, in fact, is set to scrape a lot money for charitable purposes. “I’m glad that my testimonial match will be streamed globally, and hopefully that will heighten interest and increase donations”, told Wayne Rooney, according to BBC Sports.

But of course, it is also something that Facebook has a great interest in, will reach the wide out. It is their real first test with sports-coverage, and everything after the success in the evening, we can very well see more of it in the future.
