LaLiga kicks off Sub-Saharan African rights tender

Spanish football’s LaLiga has launched a tender process for its media rights in Sub-Saharan Africa for the four seasons from 2020-21 to 2023-24.

The rights cover the Primera División and the second-tier Segunda División play-offs.

The tender encompasses 49 territories in the region. LaLiga has said that Arabic language rights are not available in Chad, Mauritius or Sudan.

Bidders are invited to submit offers until the July 2 deadline, though any questions about the tender must be submitted to LaLiga no later than June 25.

LaLiga’s Sub-Saharan rights are currently held by four pay-television broadcasters in five-year deals ending in 2019-20. SuperSport holds the English-language rights, while Canal Plus Afrique holds French-language rights. Zap holds Portuguese language rights in Angola and Mozambique, and Azam holds non-exclusive rights in Tanzania.
