Tomorrow we switch languages for a day. Amerikansk Fotball is normally a Norwegian-language website, but for tomorrow’s Norwegian Championship game we’ll be doing our coverage of the game in English. So what’s our coverage going to be like?
Where can I follow the game tomorrow?
Just like in 2015, we will be present at the stadium for the championship game. When it comes to film we will be doing live pregame, halftime and postgame shows, in addition to interviews that are recorded, uploaded to Youtube and shared through our website. We will also be doing text updates and Instagram-posts that are all available on the same page on our website. That page will be live from tomorrow morning, and you’ll be able to find it here:
It will be fairly similar to our setup and web page in 2015 for last year’s championship game, which you can still find here.
Our hosts for the pregame, halftime and postgame shows
At the stadium we will have an improvised studio set up, where our hosts Helene Marie Grov and Travis Cornwell will be in front of the camera.
Helene Marie has been part of the Eidsvoll 1814s and Vålerenga Trolls in many roles throughout several years, including playing for the Trolls’ womens team as well as the 1814s youth program where she started her football career.
Travis is well known in Norway as the quarterback and head coach for Olavs Menn, a 1st Division team. Together Helene Marie and Travis will give their input on the game and have guests in the studio throughout the day!
So…what about livestream of the game?
We are not in charge of the livestream from the game, but we will make sure you can find it through the page on our website listed above! The Norwegian federation of american football in Norway is running the livestream, so if you are not able to travel to Fredrikstad and watch the game in person (which we HIGHLY recommend!), you will be able to watch it online.
As always there’ll be technical issues to solve and keep on top of for both the guys doing the livestream and for us doing our coverage, but we hope everything goes well and look forward to the Norwegian championship game 2016, featuring the Oslo Vikings and Eidsvoll 1814s!
