EBU gets media rights for 2018 and 2012 World Cups

The EBU has secured all exclusive media rights for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. 

The deal covers the rights for 37 countries in Europe and means that nearly 40 EBU Members will provide free-to-air coverage of most matches in the next three FIFA World Cups.

EBU president Jean-Paul Philippot said, “We are honoured and proud that FIFA has placed its complete trust in the EBU and its participating Members for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups broadcast coverage. This contract is a humbling compliment, and testament to the EBU’s reputation as an ideal partner in the sports media rights industry.”
