Canal Plus Group picks up Premier League rights in Vietnam

Media company Canal Plus Group, through its subsidiary K Plus, has acquired exclusive rights in Vietnam to football’s English Premier League.

The three-season deal covers the 2019-20 to 2021-22 campaigns. K Plus will provide coverage of all 380 matches per season across its channels.

Vietnamese rights for the Premier League for the upcoming three-season period had initially been awarded to social media platform Facebook. However, SportBusiness Media reported last month that talks between Facebook and the Premier League to finalise the deal, along with a separate agreement for rights covering Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, had collapsed.

Canal Plus Group has had a presence in Vietnam for 10 years.
