TV2 seals Norway national team rights – Siem

Norwegian commercial and pay-television broadcaster TV2 has acquired rights for Norway national team football matches over the next four years.

The announcement was made by Kjetil Siem, who announced his resignation as general secretary of the Norwegian Football Federation yesterday (Tuesday) ahead of joining the sport’s global governing body, Fifa. Siem will serve as Fifa president Gianni Infantino's director of strategic matters.

TV2 has not confirmed the deal. TV2 chief executive Olav Sandnes told kampanje.com in March that the broadcaster was in “exclusive final negotiations” with European governing body Uefa for the rights.

The CAA Eleven agency is selling rights on behalf of Uefa to European qualifiers for the Uefa Euro 2020 and 2022 Fifa World Cup tournaments, the 2018-19 and 2020-21 Nations League competitions and other international matches.
