VRT Sporza is teaming up with innovative mobile streaming provider Kiswe Mobile to deliver an industry first fully interactive mobile experience around the Diamond League. On Friday September 1st, the concluding meeting and final of the Diamond League is held in Brussels, Belgium. This premium Track and Field event will host at least ten freshly crowned world champions and a series of international top athletes.

As a first of its kind digital experience, the fan will not only be able to watch the traditional TV production covering mainly the track competitions, but also can experience all field competitions in full ànd simultaneously - a bonus for the true fans of discus throwing and long, high and pole vault jumping events. The Sporza play-by-play, program feed, athlete profiles and live results feeds allow fans to navigate the buzz of the Brussels Track and Field meeting. Fans can tag, relive, and watch any event as often as desired. Finally, fan interaction is further stimulated with an integrated trivia quiz game and live race predictions.

"We are excited to work with Sporza and the Diamond League on this premier event," said Mike Schabel, CEO of Kiswe Mobile. "We believe track and field meetings with their numerous simultaneous events are ideally suited for Kiswe’s interactive mobile viewing experience".
