ENTV secures new Algerian league rights deal

Algerian state broadcaster ENTV has retained rights for Ligue 1, the country’s top division of football.

The deal was agreed with Algeria’s professional football league, which operates the tournament, and will run for two seasons, from 2014-15 to 2015-16.

The league said that the value of the deal was higher than the previous two-year rights cycle.

Under the deal, ENTV also has the exclusive right to sell on coverage of the league abroad.
