Eleven Sports has agreed a new live and exclusive rights agreement with the English Football League (EFL) for five years.
The new arrangement means that Eleven will continue to show action from the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One, Sky Bet League Two and the Carabao Cup for fans in Belgium, Luxembourg and Poland.
The five-year deal follows the original two-season partnership that was agreed before the start of the 2015/16 season.
Eleven will show games delayed and on repeat in addition to a minimum of 55 Sky Bet Championship matches and up to 30 Carabao Cup matches exclusively live across linear and OTT channels.
Commenting on the development, Danny Menken, group MD, Eleven Sports, said: “We cooperate closely with rights holders to help them connect and engage with fans in innovative ways. Our partnership with the EFL for five more years is a testament to the work we have done together to deliver thrilling football action with a fresh tone of voice for the fans.
“We’re very pleased to continue with EFL competitions in Belgium, Luxembourg and Poland – markets where football is extremely popular.”
Shaun Harvey, EFL CEO, added: “We are very pleased to extend our agreement with Eleven Sports to show matches from across the Sky Bet EFL and Carabao Cup.
“The proliferation of the global game means having a regular and prominent presence internationally has never been as important and is very significant to our Clubs who are looking to further establish themselves in key overseas markets including those territories Eleven Sports have secured the rights in.”
