Progress – but not the solution.
Apr 7, 2017 — More than 10,000 supporters later [UPDATE: 11,000], things are finally looking up. Thanks to our collective voice, IFSC have decided to take temporary measures and re-think terms of the FloSports deal. The World Cup in Meiringen will be streamed for free, but at this point we still have little information on the long-term future of IFSC live-streams.
We would like to thank IFSC for taking this very, important first step. It is unfair for federation officials to ignore the community they are here to serve, which is why we hope they will be more transparent in the future.
What happens now?
Over the next few days. we hope to hear what IFSC's official plan is for the future of live-streaming. With your support, we will continue to fight for fairness and equality for climbers around the world.
Thank you all – but remember, we're not finished yet.
