The UEFA Champions league is the highest level of club football; not just in Europe but the entire world. The competition usually starts a few weeks into the start of a new season and the games are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays with the exception of the final which is usually played on Weekends.
Nigeria is a football loving country and since many Nigerians are huge fans of European clubs, many Nigerians are also huge fans of the UEFA Champions League. If you don’t want to miss Champions League football every Tuesday and Wednesday, live streaming the matches is one way to go.
How do you do it? How can you live stream Champions League matches in Nigeria? Read on to find out.
What do you need to live stream?
You’ll need a device that can connect to the internet and play web video and audio. As a result, you’ll require a functional smartphone, laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. In addition, you’ll also require data. You’re probably aware that accessing the internet uses data, and that watching videos uses a lot of it. When you’re live streaming, you’re consuming a lot of data.
For example, to stream a whole 90-minute Champions League match in acceptable quality, you’ll need 1.5 to 2 GB. The amount of data you use will be determined by the quality of the stream. There are a variety of resolutions available, including 120, 240, 360, 480, 720, and 1080 pixels. To stream a full 90 minutes of Champions League football in 1080p (HD) resolution, you’ll need up to 5GB data.
To summarize, make sure you have enough data on your surfing device before following the instructions below to stream Champions League.
How To Stream Champions League Matches In Nigeria
There are many options for streaming UEFA Champions League in Nigeria. They include:
- Streaming Websites
There are numerous websites where you may watch free Champions League live football. Hesgoal and 60 Minutes Football are two popular examples. You’ll be able to see all of the current Champions League matches on these websites on Tuesday and Wednesday. To begin streaming, simply select the video you’d like to see, choose your preferred resolution, and click play.
Free websites, on the other hand, frequently violate copyright regulations. A few interruptions are to be expected before the game is finished, so plan accordingly. In addition, because most of these sites are run by Arab nationals, the football commentary is frequently in a language other than English.
However, you can still enjoy a fantastic live streaming experience from time to time. As long as you don’t get to pay, it’s a good deal.
- Mobile Apps
You can find and download football live streaming apps from your App Store if you have an Android or iOS smartphone. Nigerians have access to a plethora of these applications. Launching the app will bring up a list of current Champions League matches, much like on a website. There are some free and some paid live streaming mobile apps available.
To put it another way, some of these apps may require a subscription fee, which might be paid weekly, monthly, or annually, in order to watch football games. Since, Champions League is a seasonal competition and is played only on Tuesday and Wednesday, their subscription rates are typically low.
- Social media
Social media platforms are the third choice you have here. You can easily find live Champions League streaming links for big matches on Facebook and Twitter when it is going on. As a last resort, you may try checking Instagram Live to see if someone is live-streaming the match. As a result, in Nigeria, the best social media sites for watching live sports are Facebook and Twitter.
The search bar is all you need to do to find the match. Some Twitter accounts and Facebook pages are dedicated to providing their followers with live football match streaming which includes UEFA competitions. As a result, you can simply follow these pages and be alerted when a match is taking place via a live stream link. People on social media mainly share links. Because of this, copyright and interruption issues must be considered.
- DSTV App
Your decoder app can now be used to watch live Champions League in Nigeria. If you’re a DSTV subscriber, for example, you’ll be able to watch every channel on your decoder via the app. We all know that DSTV is the decoder of choice if you want to watch the best football competitions in Europe and Africa. When talking about the best football competition in Europe, we’re talking about the Champions League.
You must have a working DSTV decoder in order for this to work. If you don’t have a decoder at home, you can’t just download the DSTV app and stream Champions League games. This is due to the fact that logging in requires your Customer ID. With a virtual private network (VPN), you can watch live Champions League streams on applications like DAZN, BBC, Sky Sports, and more.
Champions league football is always fun and as a true football fan, you’ll never want to miss any of the games. If you don’t have an active decoder at home and you can’t visit a viewing center, you can easily stream the games using your mobile phone or laptop. You’ll be able to enjoy the match so long as you have an active data connection.
