ESPN scores international football rights

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

The sports broadcaster ESPN has managed to get the exclusive UK TV rights from forty one international football matches.

This will also include some of the Euro 2012 qualifying matches.

With this deal, the sports broadcaster will be able to show at least sixteen of the qualifying matches to the Euro 2012 event following an agreement with the rights agency Kentaro.

This is a full mix of matches that will of course at some point include the teams from the home nations, which is where the channel should really clean up when it comes to viewing figures.

According to the vice president of TV channels at ESPN Jeroen Oerlemans, the channel is very happy to be offering this sort of level of football in the coming months.
