La Liga game to be shown live on TikTok for first time when Real Sociedad face Real Betis next week

Baku, April 9, AZERTAC

Spanish broadcaster Gol will show next week’s La Liga game between Real Sociedad and Real Betis live on TikTok — in a first for the Spanish league, according to the Athletic.

The game will be shown in vertical format, in 9:16 dimensions, and in 4k. Gol says it is the first football match both in Spain and in a major European league to be broadcast in this way.

There will be over 30 people working on the production at San Sebastian, with Spanish company Mediapro using a “special device” to capture the 4k footage.

The fixture, which kicks off at 8pm BST, will also be available as normal on Gol’s regular TV channel.

Betis, managed by former Manchester City and West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini head into the game in fifth place, two points ahead of sixth-placed Real Sociedad and four behind fourth-placed Sevilla.
