Telia signs deal for Swedish football on mobiles

TeliaSonera has signed a four-year agreement with Swiss company Kentaro for exclusive rights to stream Swedish football matches for mobile phones.

Telia’s customers will be able to view all international and Swedish club matches in their phones. Both live matches and highlights are covered by the deal, according to a press release.

Kentaro last year bought the rights to all Swedish football matches until 2010.

“The new agreement will allow our customers to follow the Swedish team in

international competition or monitor the progress of their favourite

local team wherever and whenever they want,” said Håkan Dahlström, head of mobility services Sweden for TeliaSonera.

The companies did not reveal how much Telia was paying for the rights.

“Brozovic's Inter Milan and Swedish epidemiologists were informed about the positive test,” an HNS statement said.
   
The player's positive result came two days after defender Domagoj Vida was informed of a positive Covid-19 test after playing the first half of a friendly with Turkey in Istanbul.
   
Apart from Brozovic, 27, one staff member also tested positive.
   
They were both isolated from other members of the national team.
   
After Sweden, Croatia play another Nations League game against Portugal on Tuesday.
   
Croatia, runners-up at the 2018 World Cup, are third in their Nations League group which also includes France, the team that beat them to the World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal and Sweden.
