By Shantanu Srivastav | June 14, 2018
ELEVEN SPORTS has secured live and exclusive rights to broadcast Ligue 1 games in Portugal.
The three-year deal includes matches from the French top flight, the League Cup and the Trophee des Champions (the annual match between the league champions and cup winners).
Deals to show games in Portugal from the UEFA Champions League and Spain’s LaLiga have already been secured by the UK-based TV channel.
“Everything we do is to create maximum value for the fans. We are fully committed to bring Portuguese football fans the best product in the market, including the best players, clubs and leagues,” said Danny Menken, Group Managing Director of ELEVEN SPORTS.
“Adding Ligue 1 on top of UEFA Champions League and LaLiga means that ELEVEN SPORTS is rapidly establishing itself as the leading player in the sports media market in Portugal. We look forward to continue building our fan-centric proposition and will announce further premium rights soon.”
