British Fencing on Recast

November 4, 2021

Fencing fans will be able to keep up with all the live action from this month’s British Senior Championships, as the sport’s national governing body, British Fencing, joins sports video platform Recast.

The first live stream will focus on coverage of the upcoming key national competition, taking place at SportsDock, the University of East London, from November 6th to 7th.

The live event will be followed by content such as interviews with athletes and coaches, as well as sporting tutorials, making its way on to the British Fencing Recast channel, which will allow fans to generate money for the sport as they watch through the platform’s micropayments system.

All funds generated through the channel will be reinvested into the development and success of the sport in this country.

British Fencing CEO, Georgina Usher, said: “We are delighted to be joining Recast and bringing exciting content to fans in an accessible, affordable and innovative way. We believe that Recast will allow new and existing audiences to connect more with our competitions and athletes alike, sharing our unique sport and inspiring a new generation of fencers. It also allows us to benefit from a model where fans are directly contributing to our sport, with that revenue put back into building for the future, from grassroots level up, as well as continually raising the profile of fencing.”

Andy Meikle, Founder and CEO of Recast, added: “At the very core of what we do is ensuring that governing bodies and organisations of all sizes have access to technology that can help them transform their footprint – at no upfront cost to the rights holder or fans – and we are looking forward to helping British Fencing to realise their ambitions. Recast is successfully working with many other sporting bodies, and we are pleased to add British Fencing to the growing list of rights holders revolutionising their digital strategy.”
