Eleven Sports has extended its rights partnership with Ligue 1 in Portugal.
The deal will see Eleven continue to be the exclusive home of the French top flight football league until at least 2023/24. The broadcaster will deliver its viewers 381 games a season from the league across its linear and OTT platforms.
The rights renewal reinforces Eleven’s solid portfolio of sports in Portugal, with the broadcaster also showing the UEFA Champions League, English Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Formula 1 and NFL.
Jorge Pavão de Sousa, Managing Director of Eleven Portugal, said: “This renewal is part of a wider strategy of consolidating our content portfolio Portugal, to ensure we deliver the best possible offering to Eleven viewers in the seasons to come.
“The Ligue 1 Uber Eats is a fantastic competition, and we look forward to continuing to showcase talents like Neymar Jr, Kylian Mbappe, Gelson Martins, Renato Sanches and Anthony Lopes on Eleven. We’d like to thank Ligue 1 for their ongoing support and belief in our service and we look forward to continuing to champion the best of French football to Portuguese fans in the seasons ahead.”
