After eight years of serving the GAA’s international fan base, next year’s entry into the domestic Irish market represents a huge growth step for the online streaming platform.
GAAGO today unveiled its exclusive 2023 GAA Championship broadcast schedule, presentation team and pricing in Croke Park.
Fans will access 38 live or on-demand matches in HD quality for a special launch price of just €59 up until December 31st, before it moves to €79.
Individual pay-per-game matches will be available for €12, a ‘3-for-2’ bundle deal will cost €24 and GAA members will receive 10% off any full price (€79) subscription. GAA clubs will be able to avail of a group pass for €150 and care-giving locations will watch for free using complimentary login codes distributed by County PRO’s.
The subscription service will provide live action from every Provincial Championship and the football All-Ireland series to viewers in Ireland and around the world for 18 match days across 11 weekends.
Within the 38-game schedule twenty-two Sam Maguire cup, nine Liam Mac Carthy cup and seven Tailteann Cup matches will be streamed. Some weekends will see matches shown on both Saturday and Sunday with simultaneous live feeds occurring on certain dates.
One of those confirmed games is the meeting of Limerick and Clare in a repeat of last year’s Munster Hurling Championship final.
The highly experienced Gráinne McElwain will anchor pre-match, half-time and post-match discussion alongside a brand-new analysis team aiming to bring a player-led mentality to the discussion from Saturday, April 22nd, 2023.
She will be joined on the microphone by recently retired Donegal All-Ireland winning captain Michael Murphy, Kerry’s five-time All-Ireland winner Marc Ó Sé and seven-time All-Ireland winner with the Dublin footballers Paddy Andrews.
Live hurling match analysis will come from All-Star Limerick All-Ireland winner Séamus Hickey, nine-time Kilkenny All-Ireland winner Tommy Walsh and Cork All-Ireland winner and dual star Eoin Cadogan. More analysts are to be announced for both codes in due course, as well as GAAGO’s lead commentators and side-line reporters.
Coverage will receive full outside broadcast treatment for at least 25 games with live commentary, graphics and match analysis, multi-camera setup and replays. Enhanced venue access rights and other in-game innovation coordinated by a newly appointed GAAGO producer is also planned.
The GAAGO.ie website supports virtually all internet-enabled devices and matches can be cast to a TV screen using the GAAGO iOS and Android apps.
