In a significant move amplifying its sports content portfolio, Fite has clinched the broadcasting rights of the 2023-24 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League for multiple European countries. The territories under this exclusive two-year agreement include the UK, Ireland, Belgium, France, and the Netherlands.

Fite, renowned as a combat sports network, will be streaming the entire AFC Champions League tournament on its premium platform, Fite+. This major addition reinforces Fite's vision of diversifying its sports content offering, moving beyond its traditional combat sports domain.

Reflecting on this accomplishment, Adam Bigwood, Fite's Vice President of Subscriptions, expressed his enthusiasm. "Securing the AFC Champions League for our Fite+ users in these key territories is a significant leap forward. It not only enriches our expanding sports content collection but also stands testament to our dedication to delivering premier sports entertainment for our dedicated followers," he remarked.

The group stages of the AFC Champions League commenced recently on September 18, drawing soccer enthusiasts worldwide.

It's worth noting that this isn't Fite's maiden venture into soccer broadcasting. They've previously showcased the CONMEBOL qualifiers leading up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, further establishing their credentials in the realm of soccer streaming.

Fite+ has been the go-to platform for several combat sports enthusiasts, featuring popular events from Game Changer Wrestling, Triller Fight Club, National Wrestling Alliance, Fight2Win, SlapFight Championship, and Star Boxing. Earlier in the year, Fite also secured broadcasting rights for live events from the US-based bare-knuckle boxing promoter, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC). These BKFC events are both part of the Fite+ subscription package and available for pay-per-view.

With its latest acquisition of the AFC Champions League rights, Fite is positioning itself as a diverse and comprehensive sports streaming service, appealing to a broader audience and strengthening its presence in the competitive digital streaming market.
