Eleven Sports Belgium has secured exclusive live rights to the next five years of Belgian domestic football.
The deal marks the first time Eleven Sports has been awarded domestic rights to a major European football league, covering the Belgian First Division A, First Division B, the women’s Super League, the Belgian Cup and the Belgian Super Cup from 2020/21 until 2024/25.
The sport broadcaster said it will create a network of TV and digital platforms dedicated to Belgian football 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“In these uncertain times, we are pleased to have some positive news to share with Belgian football fans,” said Eleven Sports executive chairman Marc Watson. “This is the first time Eleven has secured the domestic rights to one of European football’s major leagues.”
“The Pro League’s decision to grant us the rights to Belgian football for the next five years is an important moment for Eleven Sports Belgium,” added Guillaume Collard, managing director of Eleven Sports Belgium and Luxembourg and group head of acquisitions. “We are committed to delivering the best possible experience to fans, clubs and the Pro League, and playing our part in growing the Belgian game.”
