Nerit picks up Champions League rights in Greece

Greek public-service broadcaster Nerit has acquired rights to the Uefa Champions League club football competition for the 2015-16 to 2017-18 seasons.

Nerit said it will broadcast the biggest games from the Champions League on a Wednesday, from the group stage until the end of the tournament. It will also provide highlights of Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s matches.

Pay-television broadcaster OTE last month acquired rights to the Champions League and Europa League across the same three-year window.

The deals were agreed with the Team Marketing agency, the rights distribution partner of football’s European governing body.
