Phumelela, under the Tab and Betting World brands, have launched two huge, new products.

Although quite separate, they go hand-in-hand in terms of the bouquet of soccer betting currently offered by the two betting brands.

The first is a new sports television channel, called SPORTSLIVE! which will broadcast - live and exclusive – a selection of matches from the French, Spanish and English leagues, as well as various Asian leagues, most notably China, Japan and India as well as Middle Eastern countries.

SPORTSLIVE! will also broadcast Futsal matches – live daily – from a brand-new Futsal league, the Premier Futsal League, the second product launched on 1 February 2019.

“Let’s be honest, there is a very limited number of live soccer matches broadcast nine to five on weekdays,” said Rob Scott, Phumelela’s Betting, Marketing and Publishing Executive.

“It’s the one replay after the other. In fact, on most days the customers in our shops have to watch replays of the replays. There’s hardly any fun in watching a match that you know the result of.”

According to Scott, it is for this very reason that Tab and Betting World have joined forces to bring live and exclusive soccer action to the customers who spend time in the shops, betting on The Beautiful Game.

“The fact that we will be broadcasting the new Premier Futsal League, is an added bonus for our customers, as they will not only be able to watch the games live, but they will also be able to bet on them.

“We will offer a variety of pools, including the very popular Soccer 4 and Soccer 6 pools, on the Premier Futsal League. The best part is that payouts will be done on the same day the matches are played.”

All the matches broadcast by SPORTSLIVE, can be watched free of charge only in all Tab and Betting World Shops.

Futsal is a five-a-side, shortened version of soccer played on courts similar in size to basketball courts. The sport is famous for being an exciting, fast-paced game in which a lot of goals are scored. Futsal is also the only five-a-side format of football recognised by AMF.

As the exclusive broadcaster of the Premier Futsal League, Tab and Betting World will broadcast these matches for free in all Tab and Betting World Shops.
