Polish FA nets TVP deal for II liga

Polish public-service broadcaster TVP has agreed a rights deal for the II liga, the third tier of domestic club football.

Under the agreement with the Polish Football Association (PZPN), which will run through to the end of the 2019-20 season, TVP will broadcast at least one match per round on either TVP 3 or TVP Sport.

In addition, each round of matches will be covered by a highlights programme broadcast on the Łączy Nas Piłka channel.

PZPN secretary general Maciej Sawicki said: “Our partnership with Telewizją Polską is the next step towards professionalisation of the II liga games. Television coverage will also be a great promotion, which may translate into new club sponsors, and perhaps also a title sponsor for the entire competition.”
