ELEVEN SPORTS’ Watch Together tool has been shortlisted for the 2020 Digiday Media Awards Europe Awards and the Sports Business Awards.


Watch Together is nominated for Digiday’s ‘Digital Product of the Year’ and ‘Best Use of Technology’ and for the prestigious ‘Sports Innovation Award' by Sports Business.


Watch Together is an industry first experience where users can watch live sport with friends, family and fellow fans in the same ‘virtual’ room. The tool allows subscribers to share all the emotions of a matchday together, even if they are hundreds of miles apart.


During the Covid-19 pandemic the service is playing a more important role than ever, helping fans to connect with one another while they are stuck at home.


The nomination represents further recognition for Watch Together, which was crowned ‘Best Digital First Production’ at the SportsPro OTT Awards in 2019.


Tom Middleditch, Eleven Sports Global Head of Digital said: "At ELEVEN we want to bring fans together and offer them new and exciting ways to enjoy the sport they love. Watch Together is a big part of that and I’m really proud that our industry recognises the value it brings to ELEVEN fans around the world.”
