Action at the second edition of the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) President’s Cup will be live-streamed on YouTube, it has been confirmed.

Fans will be able to watch matches on their laptops, tablets and smartphones through the YouTube channel of the South Greek Taekwondo Union (ETANE).

Eight video cameras will be placed at the competition venue – the Ano Liosia Olympic Hall in Greek capital Athens.

Four days of competition will be held between April 27 and 30.

The event, organised by the European Taekwondo Union (ETU) and supported by ETANE, is expected to attract more than 2,000 athletes from 51 countries.

Olympic, world and European champions will be among the number.

The announcement of live-streaming follows confirmation of the event’s media partners earlier this month.

NOVA, one of the biggest TV networks in Greece, Sport FM Radio and the Goal News newspaper have all been brought in by the ETU for the competition.

Organisers say the three companies will broadcast “information, news and updates at both European and local levels”. 

The first President’s Cup took place last year in German city Bonn.
