Limited IKF livestream coverage of medal matches

The International Korfball Federation (IKF) continues to provide coverage from The World Games 2022 to fans throughout the world. If you aren’t already, make sure you’re following the official IKF social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

Due to the fact that the IKF is not the rightsholder of The World Games footage, there will be livestream restrictions (commonly known as geo-blocking) for certain countries. In countries where TV stations and broadcasters have acquired the rights to The World Games 2022 the IKF unfortunately is not allowed to provide a livestream of the medal matches.

We understand that this is disappointing for fans in the following countries and regions:

Algeria, Argentina, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chad, Chile, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, Comoros Island, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Djibouti, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Mexico, Middle East, Morocco, Nicaragua, North Africa, Oman, Palestinian, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Uruguay, USA, Venezuela and Yemen.

If you live in one of the regions impacted you should check with your national broadcaster to see if they will cover the korfball finals.
