Manchester United agree three-year-deal with Fiji TV to broadcast MUTV to South Pacific fanbase

Manchester United have announced a three-year-deal with Fiji TV that will see their dedicated TV channel MUTV broadcast to their fanbase in the South Pacific.

The deal will mean that the club’s fans across 21 territories of the South Pacific will be able to access MUTV through Fiji TV, including delayed coverage of matches.

Tevita Gonelevu, CEO of Fiji TV, said: “Our viewers are passionate about football and it was important for us to be able to offer them footage of the Premier League. We look forward to our relationship with the Club and hope that our viewers enjoy everything MUTV has to offer.”

Richard Arnold, group managing director of Manchester United, revealed that the club had over half-a-million followers across the South Pacific.

“Fans will not only be able to view all of the club’s matches for the next three seasons, but also get a real insight into the team they support. This is the first time the Club has been able to offer this service to fans and we are delighted to be teaming up with Fiji TV to bring them closer to United,” Arnold said.

The 21 territories will include Fiji, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, French Polynesia and New Caledonia.

Earlier this year, Manchester United agreed a three-year-deal to broadcast MUTV in New Zealand.
