Eleven Sports agrees EFL live broadcast rights deal for Belgium, Luxembourg and Poland markets

August 3, 2017

With two days to go to the start of the 2017/18 season, ELEVEN SPORTS has agreed on a new live and exclusive rights agreement with the English Football League (EFL) for five years.

The new arrangement means that ELEVEN will continue to deliver scintillating action from the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One, Sky Bet League Two and the Carabao Cup for fans in Belgium, Luxembourg and Poland.

The five-year deal follows the original two-season partnership which was agreed before the start of the 2015/16 season.

ELEVEN will show games delayed and on repeat in addition to a minimum of 55 Sky Bet Championship matches and up to 30 Carabao Cup matches exclusively live across linear and OTT channels.

“We cooperate closely with rights holders to help them connect and engage with fans in innovative ways. Our partnership with the EFL for five more years is a testament to the work we have done together to deliver thrilling football action with a fresh tone of voice for the fans,” said Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS.

“We are very pleased to extend our agreement with ELEVEN SPORTS to show matches from across the Sky Bet EFL and Carabao Cup,” said EFL CEO Shaun Harvey.

“The proliferation of the global game means having a regular and prominent presence internationally has never been as important and is very significant to our Clubs who are looking to further establish themselves in key overseas markets including those territories ELEVEN SPORTS have secured the rights in.”
