StarHub picks up Italian football rights

Singapore-based telco StarHub has acquired rights in Singapore and Indonesia for the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana club football competitions.

StarHub will showcase the remainder of the 2018-19 Coppa Italia knockout competition, as well as the January 16 Supercoppa Italiana clash between Juventus and AC Milan in Saudi Arabia.

The two competitions will be shown in Singapore on StarHub across its Hub Sports channel and via Go Sports on StarHub Go. In Indonesia, coverage will be shown on free-to-air channel TVRI Nasional and TVRI Sport HD.

The deal has been brokered by Singapore-based sports agency Reddentes Sports following an agreement with Lega Serie A, through its advisor Infront.

This weekend will see the Coppa Italia host its round-of-16 fixtures, with Sampdoria v AC Milan, Torino v Fiorentina and Bologna v Juventus among the standout matches.
