By | Latest News, News | No Comments

Global sports provider ELEVEN SPORTS has added to its rights portfolio in Belgium with the acquisition of LIVE and EXCLUSIVE rights to the 2017/18 PDC World Darts Championship, the 2018 PDC World Cup of Darts and the Champion of Champions Snooker tournament which is taking place this week in the UK.

All three events will be available to ELEVEN SPORTS subscribers on TV, online, and on mobile via the ELEVEN SPORTS platform.

“We are very pleased to extend our partnership with Matchroom Sport to bring more premium darts action – a sport that is popular locally in Belgium – to fans across the country. We are also thrilled to grow our portfolio by adding a leading Snooker tournament for the first time in this market,” said Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS. “These additions signify more great progress for ELEVEN SPORTS, aligned to our strategy to meet un-met demand and make locally relevant, underserved content available for domestic fans in ways they want to consume it.

The acquisition of the leading darts events is an extension of the successful partnership which saw ELEVEN SPORTS show the previous editions of the same tournaments.

The PDC World Darts Championship, which is seen as one of the most prestigious tournaments on the circuit, will run from 14 December 2017 – 1 January 2018 at London’s Alexandra Palace. The Championship has a rich history of past winners including 14-time winner Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor from England and two-time winner and reigning champion Michael Van Gerwen from the Netherlands.

Belgian darts fans will hope brothers Kim and Ronny Huybrechts can qualify for the tournament later this year, alongside youngster Dimitri Van den Bergh.

ELEVEN SPORTS will show 54 LIVE hours of the Champion of Champions Snooker tournament which brings together sixteen of the world’s best players including World Number One, Mark Selby, fan favourite and five-time World Champion, Ronnie O’Sullivan, and Belgian native, Luca Brecel, providing a local flavour for domestic viewers.

ELEVEN SPORTS is the only sports service to be available in every household in Belgium and is available on Proximus, Telenet, VOO, SFR, Orange and Scarlet TV and TV VLAANDEREN / TÉLÉSAT.

ELEVEN SPORTS SECURES LIVE RIGHTS TO SERIE A TIM IN ITALY

By | Latest News, News | No Comments

Global sports provider ELEVEN SPORTS has secured LIVE rights to Serie A TIM in Italy.

The platform will 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 begins on 1 October with Napoli-Cagliari, Benevento-Inter and Milan-Roma and the action will be supplemented by in-depth, pre and post-match analysis from former players, football experts and journalists.

The live games will typically include the 6pm Saturday match and the games at 12:30pm and 3pm on a Sunday – ensuring there will be a spread of premium matches featuring the biggest stars from the league’s top clubs.

The matches will be priced aggressively providing fantastic value for fans with individual games available for €1.99 or all three matches available for €3.99.

Italy became ELEVEN SPORTS’ seventh market when the company acquired national OTT platform Sportube in May 2017 and 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 fans can follow every one of their favourite team’s matches.

This ground-breaking offer was made possible by the implementation of innovative technical infrastructure that enabled Sportube to cut production costs exponentially while keeping up a high-quality service. During the 2016/17 season, Sportube produced and distributed 1,287 Serie C games creating national interest in a championship that had previously only been distributed locally.

“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.” said Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS. “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.”

Since ELEVEN SPORTS’ acquisition of Sportube, a new platform has been launched featuring modern and dynamic graphics and a more intuitive, user-friendly interface that makes navigation easier and faster.

Founded in 2010, Sportube was the first Italian OTT service dedicated to sport. Other rights currently carried on the platform include LIVE coverage of the top Volleyball League, Lega Volley Serie A; Italy’s top waterpolo league; domestic and international fencing; Italy’s 162 team amateur football leagues; the Italian Badminton Championship and a wide offering of motorsport including Superbike, Motocross, Enduro, Italian Rally Championship and the Campionato italiano di velocità – Italy’s premier motorcycle championship.

The platform will be known as Sportube, an ELEVEN SPORTS Company, until a full re-branding process is completed later this year.
