DSport to show Audi Cup 2017 in India

DSport has acquired the exclusive broadcast rights in India to the Audi Cup 2017, a two-day pre-season soccer tournament staged at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany.    

Discovery Communications India’s dedicated sports channel will show all four games of the four team knockout tournament, which runs from 1st to 2nd August. 

The opening fixture will see English side Liverpool play La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid, followed by a game between hosts Bayern Munich and Serie A team Napoli. The winners of each match will proceed to the final, while the two losers will contest a third-place play-off. 

To date, Bayern Munich have won three out of the four editions held, with Barcelona being the only other team to win in 2011.
