TVP Sport seals new ESL rights deal in Poland

Polish public-service broadcaster TVP Sport has signed a fresh rights agreement with esports organisation ESL.

As part of the deal, TVP Sport will broadcast a range of ESL tournaments, starting from April 16. Content will be showcased on the TVPSport.pl website and on the broadcaster’s official YouTube and Twitch channels.

The deal covers two seasons of the ESL Pro League and its finals, all ESL One games, two seasons of the Polish Championships and all Counter Strike: Global Offensive tournaments in the Intel Extreme Masters series.

Coverage will also be available on ESL Polska channels as part of the agreement.

TVP Sport first partnered with ESL last year.

ESL earlier this year expanded its partnership with Facebook Gaming to deliver non-exclusive coverage of its global competitions on the social media platform.
