It may not be Australia's biggest sport, but water polo is on the rise - and with Aussie teams consistently dominating the competition internationally, it makes sense that the sport is looking to expand its audience locally. Enter OVO Mobile.
The telco has announced it will partner with Water Polo Australia to offer OVOPlay users exclusive access to live matches over the next four years, both here and overseas. The deal will see the sport broadcast to existing fans and a new audience eager to cheer on our country's teams in the lead up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
With more than 11 million Australians now using their phones, tablets and laptops to enjoy live streaming sports each month, OVO is using its Play digital broadcast service to shine a light on events and codes that haven't always been accessible to network TV viewers.
Partnering with Water Polo Australia means fans of the sport can enjoy matches all year round, not just during major international meets such as the Olympic Games.
