A long-term partner of the European Cricket AG, Spring Media has finalized a wider network of broadcasters of its pinnacle Championship tournament than ever before, and signed a first-ever fast data deal with Decimal Data to enhance the viewer experience.
31 nations are gearing up to battle for European cricketing supremacy with the Netherlands returning to defend their reign as continental champions. Dubbed by some as “the Euros of cricket,” the event sets the stage at the Cartama Oval in Malaga, Spain, from September 25 to October 20.
