Eleven Sports secure live rights to Serie A TIM in Italy

September 25, 2017

Global sports provider Eleven Sports has secured live rights to Serie A TIM in Italy.

The platform is set to show three games live every match week on mobile, tablet and online as part of a pay offer for fans across the country.

The partnership commences on October 1st with live on-pitch action set to be supplemented by in-depth, pre and post-match analysis from former players, football experts and journalists.

The matches will be priced aggressively with individual games set to be made available for as little as €1.99.

Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, Eleven Sports, said: “Our model of acquiring smaller rights with economically viable production costs and widespread appeal amongst domestic fans in Italy has proved very successful and we are thrilled to take our coverage of football to the next level by delivering top Serie A action for the fans.

“We are looking forward to working in partnership with Serie A to help them reach and grow their fan-base across Italy by providing access to the biggest and best teams and players at an affordable price.”

Italy became Eleven Sports’ seventh market when the company acquired national OTT platform Sportube in May 2017.

The acquisition of Serie A matches in Italy builds on Sportube’s success in the market, which has steadily grown through the production and delivery of all Serie C games through a dedicated online platform, ensuring supporters are able to follow every one of their favourite team’s matches.
