FIFA and the EBU have announced an extension to their “other FIFA events” agreement until 2022.
The new agreement will cover the broadcasting of 13 FIFA events in 38 territories over the next four years, including FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 in France as well as all other Women’s/Youth FIFA World Cups.
According to the EBU, the deal means that they will be able to continue provide extensive coverage of these FIFA national team competitions on all platforms. They will continue to do so in the coming years thanks to a wider scope of rights and significant free-to-air coverage commitment on all platforms.
“As a continuation of our existing long-term partnership with FIFA, we are very pleased that we have been able to reach – on behalf of our Members – another agreement until 2022 for these exciting football competitions,” said EBU Head of Football Rights, Pascal Fratellia.
“This deal provides FIFA with a strong and reliable free-to-air broadcast commitment from EBU Members and reinforces our ambition and dedication to showcase National Team football events.”
