Sauerland renews ProSiebenSat.1 rights deal

The Sauerland boxing agency has renewed a rights deal with German commercial broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1.

The agreement covers a minimum of 12 events per year for three years, from 2017 to 2019.

ProSiebenSat.1 replaced incumbent rights-holder ARD in the role in 2014 with a two-year deal covering 2015 and 2016.

In 2016, Sauerland staged a total of 24 television events in seven different countries.

Sauerland’s partners also include Matchroom Boxing in the UK and pay-television broadcaster Viasat in Scandinavia.
