Badminton Scotland sign up QTV Sports for the Scottish Open

Court 1 matches at the Scottish Open Grand Prix will be available to watch online with the news that Badminton Scotland are once again partnering with QTV Sports.

The production company will be the digital and streaming partner for the event, which gets underway next week, meaning every match played on Court 1 at the Emirates Arena from November 23-26 will be available to view online at www.badmintonscotland.org.uk

The deal sees a continuation of a long-standing successful relationship between both parties, stretching back several years.

QTV Sports, who also work with prestigious organisations such as the Scottish Football Association, Badminton World Federation, and International Table Tennis Federation, are a team of award-winning digital content creators and broadcast professionals.

They specialise in creating and curating content designed to increase engagement with an event which will allow more people to watch the array of top class players who will be on show at the Scottish Open.

Anne Smillie, Chief Executive of Badminton Scotland, welcomed the news.

“It’s fantastic to be able to announce we will once again be working with QTV Sports at the Scottish Open Grand Prix,” she said.

“We have partnered with them for several years now and have always been delighted with their work.

“The ability to be able to watch the action live, from wherever you are in the world, is a great opportunity for us to showcase the fantastic level of competition to those unable to get to the Emirates Arena next week.”

Badminton Scotland President Ian Campbell was equally enthusiastic about the partnership, adding: “This is terrific news. Badminton fans everywhere will be able to feast on high class badminton all next week”.

Jack McGill, CEO of QTV Sports, said: "Through livestreaming and in-play highlights, the global audience for the Scottish Open Grand Prix grows year-on-year. We're always delighted to work with a governing body that really embraces the digital opportunities for event coverage and to support an event that continues to be a stand-out fixture in the Scottish sporting calendar."

The Scottish Open Grand Prix is being staged at the Emirates Arena by BADMINTONscotland with support from Glasgow Life, Glasgow City Council and EventScotland, part of VisitScotland’s Events Directorate.
