Mediaset’s Energy to show futsal league

Spanish commercial broadcaster Mediaset has acquired rights for the Liga Nacional de Fútbol Sala, the country’s ‘futsal’ football competition.

The deal will run for three seasons, from 2013-14 to 2015-16, and Mediaset will exploit the rights on its digital-terrestrial channel Energy.

Under the agreement, Energy will show live coverage of a game on every match day of the regular season and play-off campaign, as well as seven matches from the futsal knockout cup competition plus the annual Supercopa two-legged contest.

Coverage starts on September 3.
