2018 Glasgow European Open to be live streamed on the BBC Sport website

If you can’t make to the 2018 Glasgow European Open this weekend, you can still watch the action on the BBC Sport web site.

The BBC will be providing a commentated stream of both days of the action.

The streams will be here:

Tell your friends and relatives!

This will be a fantastic opportunity for them (and you!) to see a top-flight Judo competition with several of the UK’s best judoka in action.

You can still watch the action on the EJU web site but the BJA is keen that we use the BBC stream to demonstrate to the BBC that there is a keen interest in watching Judo – the more of you that watch the BBC stream, the more Judo there will be available to watch.
