FIBA U19 World Championship LIVE

June 29th, 2011 · No Comments

The FIBA U19 World Championship starts tomorrow Thursday in Latvia. After our series of previews, where we could unfortunately not present all the teams, we give you some indications how to follow the tournament on the Internet through LIVE streams or Videos.

First of all, there is the official FIBA TV package where you can follow all the games from the Quarter-Finals on for only 10.99€. The broadcasts start on the 8th of July and you will get 8 games (4 quarter-finals, 2 semi-finals, Bronze and Gold Medal Game) of the U19 World Championship for that price. With that monthly pass, you have access to FIBA TV for 1 month (logic, isn’t it) so you can also follow the decisive phase of the U20 European Championship (semi-finals, Bronze and Gold Medal games) which will be played on the 23rd and 24th July. Seems like a good deal as you get all these games on LIVE and on demand for less than 1€ per contest. It is good to know that no Geo-Blocking at all will be on the U19 event according to the FIBA TV Website. Click here to register for this offer.

Free LIVE Streams

Next to this official package, there are some streams available for which we can only point out without any guarantee that they work correctly. Latvian Television LTV7 broadcasts all the games of the hosts LIVE and you should be able to follow the LIVE stream here. Lietuvos Rytas TV broadcasted the games of the Lithuanian U19 team preparation phase but it looks like they will not cover the tournament before the Quarter-Finals. So far, we heard of any other TV channel covering the games live but we will update this post if there are some changes.

The games of Argentina should be available here.

EuropeanProspects will cover the tournament from Riga over the last three days (i.e. from the Quarter-Finals on). To get updates on a regular basis, we suggest you to follow our Twitter account as well as the #FIBAu19 hashtag. You can of course find all the results, statistics and LIVE Scores on the official website of the event: FIBA will most likely also upload Highlights and Interviews on their official Youtube Channel.

Tickets can still be bought for all the games here.

N.B.: Please note as well that Latvia is one hour ahead of the Central European Time which means that the first game of Latvia which is scheduled at 20h30 local time tomorrow is being broadcasted at 19h30 Central European Time.
