Sport1 renews Spanish Liga rights

Dutch sports pay-television broadcaster Sport1 renewed its exclusive rights for the Spanish Liga, Spain’s top football league, for three seasons, from 2012-13 to 2014-15. The deal was agreed with the Mediapro agency, which sells the international rights for the league.

Sport1 will televise a minimum of four weekly matches live and in high definition, and coverage will also be available online.

Last week, Sport1 agreed a renewal with the Team Marketing agency for Uefa Champions League rights, guaranteeing coverage of European club football’s top-tier competition until the end of the 2014-15 season. Sport1 is also the exclusive broadcaster in the Netherlands of the English Premier League, and the French Ligue 1.
