Eleven Sports and Mediapro launch two new football channels in Belgium

The two groups join forces internationally

Eleven Sports and MEDIAPRO join forces on a series of strategic international projects to support the growth of both groups worldwide. The Belgian Pro League is one of the first projects falling under the auspices of their collaboration. Eleven Sports and MEDIAPRO will cooperate for the delivery of the Belgian Pro League project, including the launch of the 3 Belgian Pro League channels, the production of games and the international sale of Belgian football media rights.

Eleven Sports is an international group of sports television channels with platforms across Europe and Asia. In Belgium, Eleven has the rights for LaLiga, Bundesliga, Serie A, the FA Cup, the League Cup, the UEFA Nations League and the Euro and World Cup qualifiers, among other competitions. Eleven Sports Belgium recently secured the media rights of Belgian football for the next five seasons.

MEDIAPRO is an international multimedia company. It is a global player in film and TV production, as well as a key operator in sport, as a rights holder and producer. MEDIAPRO is, among other competitions, the holder of the international rights for LaLiga and provides the live capturing of the games from 16 different competitions, including LaLiga. As of next season, MEDIAPRO will also produce the live coverage of the French Ligue 1 and will launch in August the new Telefoot channel.

International strategic collaboration

With the sports media industry heavily impacted by Covid over the past few months, Eleven Sports and MEDIAPRO will be looking to pull together their expertise and capabilities across the world to boost business growth for both groups and deliver for fans. To kick off the new collaboration, MEDIAPRO will collaborate with Eleven with the launch of its new Pro League channels, with the delivering of a state-of-the-art production of the 1A, 1B, Women Super League and the E-Pro League competitions for Belgian fans and the sale of the Pro League across the world.

MEDIAPRO will operate from Belgium and will hire local staff, as it has done in all territories where MEDIAPRO operates.
