August 28, 2013

The marketing arm of the European Handball Federation (EHF) has announced a two-year broadcast deal with nc+, the Polish premium pay TV platform.

Under the agreement, nc+ will broadcast the VELUX EHF Champions League and Women’s EHF Champions League across Poland.

Peter Vargo, Managing Director of EHF Marketing GmbH, said: “Poland is a key market for handball and the EHF Champions League, and more so since the success of KS Vive Targi Kielce in reaching last season’s VELUX EHF FINAL4. We are looking forward to further improving our coverage with nc+ and MP & Silva to grow our audience in this rapidly developing market.”

Julien Verley, CEO of the nc+ platform, said: “Every year the EHF Champions League gains more international attention and it will be another great addition to the nc+ range of leading national and international sports content. The acquisition continues our strategy to create a strong and diversified sports offering. Considering the rise of Polish handball teams in the competitions, this gives us a great opportunity to bring to viewers one of the most formidable handball leagues.

“We are thrilled to have acquired the broadcasting rights of the EHF’s top club competitions and we look forward to contributing to the growing interest in handball in Poland.”

The deal was brokered by MP & Silva.
