Live Graphic Systems and InteractSport have entered into a partnership to provide sports clubs, leagues, associations and federations live streaming and video capture solutions including use of LIGR’s automated broadcast graphics technology powered from Interact Sport’s digital suite of sports products.
InteractSport is the preeminent team management and data solution for grassroots sports in Australia and the UK, with a strong client list including Cricket Australia, Netball Australia, Football Federation Australia, Rugby Australia, the English & Wales Cricket Board and Cricket Ireland.
The combination of both LIGR and InteractSport’s technology provides an enviable technology stack for sports leagues to manage and commercialise their digital assets, including live broadcasts. This deal follows on from a successful beginning to a pilot integration of the Cricket LiveScore app into LIGR’s platform for cricket matches, which sees Live Graphic Systems deliver automated cloud graphics for games streamed to social media platforms such as Youtube and Facebook.
Live Graphic Systems CEO, Luke McCoy, praised InteractSport’s innovative approach to video and future OTT offerings, commenting, “The InteractSport team has been extremely proactive in forming a partnership that can not only benefit both companies but more importantly offer an impressive turn-key, professional and automated streaming solution for its sports clients to grow and commercialise their sport”

We are very excited about the opportunity to provide grassroots sporting leagues and clubs the capability to broadcast their matches. There is a huge appetite out there and through this partnership, we are breaking down the barriers that have previously impacted the quality of local leagues broadcasting their matches.”
