Euroleague reveals dual TV deals

October 10, 2016

Euroleague Basketball and IMG have announced that fans in Spain will continue to enjoy the competition after they renewed agreements with both TV3 Catalunya and Telefonica Movistar to broadcast the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague for the coming seasons.

The ongoing commitment and investment from both broadcasters comes at the start of a new and exciting era that promises their viewers more EuroLeague games than ever before with all of the continent’s top teams playing each other for the first time in European club basketball history.

“Just like Spain has great teams and great fans, we have great television partners whom we are thrilled to keep working with as we take unprecedented steps forward for our sport in Europe,” Jordi Bertomeu, Euroleague Basketball President and CEO, said. “It all comes down to how well our fans are served, and we know from experience that the viewers of Telefonica Movistar and TV3 Catalunya will get to see the EuroLeague at its best going forward.”

TV3 Catalunya has been a broadcast partner of Euroleague Basketball for more than a decade. As the host broadcaster of FC Barcelona Lassa home games, TV3 Catalunya commands a devoted audience to its region’s top club.

Telefonica Movistar has been broadcasting EuroLeague games since buying Canal Plus in the middle of a three-year contract with Euroleague Basketball.
