Eurosport Renews Premier League Rights In Romania
By Jay Stuart | February 14, 2019
Eurosport has extended its rights deal with the English Premier League in Romania for another three seasons, starting 2019-2020.
Eurosport in Romania will hold exclusive TV and digital rights with fans able to watch the matches live with local commentary on Eurosport and simulcast on Eurosport Player, the live and on-demand service available anytime and on any device.
Eurosport first acquired Premier League rights for Romania in 2013.
The new agreement follows Eurosport’s recent announcement that it has secured exclusive rights to broadcast the English FA Cup until 2021 in Romania, starting this Saturday with Newport County versus Manchester City.
Victoria Davies, SVP Country Manager Discovery Networks CEE, Mediterranean and Central Asia, said: “The renewal of the rights clearly shows the strategic importance of the Romanian market in Discovery’s portfolio across the region, bringing the most exciting football league in the world to millions of fans across a football-mad country.”
