SPFL and beIN confirm multi-territory media-rights deal

The Scottish Professional Football League has today confirmed a multi-territory broadcast deal with beIN Media Group.

BeIN will hold rights in 24 countries across the Middle East and North Africa as well as Australia and New Zealand. The deal will run for two seasons, 2018-19 and 2019-20. BeIN will exploit the rights on its beIN Sports pay-television channels.

The agreement was struck directly between the league and beIN following the league’s termination of its international rights deal with the MP & Silva agency on August 13.

TV Sports Markets reported last month that coverage from 2018-19 onward would be shown by beIN in Mena, Australia and New Zealand.
