Global sports provider ELEVEN SPORTS has acquired the Bundesliga match played at 6:30pm on a Saturday, the German Supercup and the four relegation play-offs from Bundesliga International on an exclusive basis in Poland.
After securing rights to all other available packages in February this year, ELEVEN SPORTS will now sublicense chosen Bundesliga matches to the nc+ platform, also on exclusive basis.
Beginning this weekend, until 2020/21 season, CANAL+ will broadcast in each full season two games during 30 match weeks and three games during four match weeks. The rest of the matches will be broadcast on ELEVEN SPORTS channels. Additionally CANAL+ will enrich its Football Magazines with highlights of all games from Bundesliga.
“So far this season we have seen huge demand for football on ELEVEN SPORTS. We aired up to 27 live matches every weekend during September and we had the number one and number two best performing sports channels in Poland on the opening weekend of the football season among viewers aged 16 to 49,” said Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS. “We have a fantastic set of premium rights, including four of the world’s top football leagues, Formula One, Speedway and many more top sports properties. This sublicense agreement with nc+ works for everyone – creating more choice for viewers and allowing us to manage our word-class portfolio more effectively. To ensure we continue to meet demand and deliver more live games to our viewers we are also considering launching a new channel this year with more details to follow.”
In addition to leading football and Formula One, ELEVEN SPORTS subscribers in Poland are also treated to other premium sports including NFL; ATP 250 tennis; and numerous properties which are very popular in the local market including Speedway and MMA.
