Eurosport Arabia – one of the Region’s foremost digital sports destinations – recently announced that it has joined SnapChat Discover.
Speaking on the occasion, Eurosport Arabia’s Editor in Chief, Khaled Karam, said, “Eurosport Arabia will be the preferred channel that young sports fans will love on Snapchat. We have been active on SnapChat for nearly two years now and credit this presence as being fundamental to our regional success. Eurosport Arabia has always placed fans first and we believe that social media is truly the right environment for engaging fans. We are honored to have found a new home on Snapchat Discover through this exclusive partnership and are very excited about the opportunity to expand content distribution and reach a massive audience.
