L’Équipe TV among parties in talks with beIN over French Handball League free-to-air sublicensing rights
The European Handball Federation has increased the value of its global media and marketing rights by up to 300 per cent in a new deal with a joint venture comprised of the Infront agency and digital media company Perform.
The International Handball Federation told TV Sports Markets this week it agreed an eight-year global media-rights deal with the MP & Silva agency – rather than its usual four-year cycle – due to the long-term financial security it will provide.
The European Handball Federation is expected to secure a large increase in the value of its club competition and national team media and marketing rights, with bids due in six weeks.
The German handball league, the Handball-Bundesliga, will receive bids for its domestic media rights one week from today, TV Sports Markets understands.
Germany’s football federation is set to earn about 35 per cent more from domestic media rights to its knockout cup competition, with deals to be announced in the coming weeks.
