New report delivers most comprehensive analysis of Uefa Champions League and Europa League media-rights landscape

The multi-billion dollar global media-rights landscape around Uefa’s Champions League and Europa League is analysed in forensic detail in an essential new report from SportBusiness Consulting, which will be available to purchase on Monday, August 5.

The report contains a comprehensive market-by-market breakdown covering Europe, Asia, the Americas and Mena, identifying current and historic Champions League and Europa League broadcasters, the fees paid and the factors driving the rights market in each territory.

Team Marketing, Uefa’s exclusive sales agent, has driven a 35-per-cent increase in revenue for Uefa club competitions in the 2018-19 to 2020-21 rights cycle. The report demonstrates and explains how this has been driven by large increases in the value of the rights in a number of key territories and has been achieved in spite of challenges in South east Asia and the Indian subcontinent.

Key features of the report include:

  • Combined value of Uefa club competitions and how this has changed since the 2012-13 to 2014-15 rights cycle
  • Analysis of how Team achieved increased media-rights revenues in the 2018-19 to 2020-21 rights cycle, both in macro terms across all markets and in the majority of individual markets
  • Who and where new entrants have acquired rights
  • Market-by-market profiles for 48 different markets from each of Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Americas and Africa and the Middle East. This includes analysis in each market of the type of broadcaster exploiting the right (i.e. linear, pay television, online streaming etc.) and how the rights fee has changed.

This report will be ideal for anyone who wants to have an overview of how sport’s fifth-most valuable media-rights property generates its revenue, while getting insight into 48 different media-rights markets. Anybody interested in purchasing this report can register their interest here.
