Eleven Sports has extended its rights agreement with Formula 1 in Poland until the end of the 2022 season.
The renewed agreement also includes the broadcast rights to FIA Formula 2 and FIA Formula 3 Championship and the Porsche Supercup Series, which commences in 2019 and concludes in 2022.
At the same time, Eleven said it will sub-license highlights to Polsat and abridged live race programmes to TVP, starting this season. The Porsche Supercup Series will also be available on Polsat’s Sports Channels.
“With a big following of loyal fans who love the thrilling spectacle of Formula 1, the series has become a very important part of our premium offer in Poland,” said Eleven Sports Poland CEO, Krzysztof Świergiel.
“It has been a top priority to secure this extension and we are delighted that we will continue to cover every single lap with comprehensive, in depth coverage from every race weekend.”
Formula 1’s senior manager of media rights, Michaella Snoeck, said: “We are delighted to have extended our long-standing partnership with Eleven Sports for a further three seasons.
“Eleven Sports will broadcast a comprehensive offering made up of their high quality on-site production and international feed coverage across their channels, which will be further enhanced by their sub-licensing partnership with both Polsat and Telewizja Polska, providing expanded free-to-air coverage to further support the growth of Formula 1 in Poland.”
