Asset OgilvyEntertainment extends LaLiga rights in Greece, Cyprus

The Asset OgilvyEntertainment agency has extended its agreement for broadcast rights in Greece and Cyprus to LaLiga, the top division of Spanish club football.

Asset OgilvyEntertainment will distribute the rights to LaLiga in the two countries across the three seasons spanning 2018-19 to 2020-21.

The contract also includes clip rights, a new addition compared to previous deals.

Asset OgilvyEntertainment has distributed LaLiga rights in both territories since 2009.
