Fox brings Basketball to EU, Africa

October 14, 2013

Euroleague Basketball and Fox International Channels (FIC) have signed a four-year broadcasting agreement that will bring the Turkish Airlines Euroleague to basketball fans throughout Europe and Africa. The deal provides the network with exclusive rights to broadcast live games and highlights on FIC channels in different European markets, as well as non-exclusive rights in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Italy and Poland will become the first FIC Europe’s markets to benefit from the deal, exclusively broadcasting live games involving their respective local teams: Montepaschi Siena and EA7 Emporio Armani Milan in Italy; and Stelmet Zielona Góra in Poland. In addition, FIC have acquired the exclusive rights to the remainder of the week’s games.

Basketball fans in Sub-Saharan Africa will also be able to watch their favourite Euroleague action, with at least one weekly game set to be broadcast live on the region’s sports channel, Setanta Africa (currently in the process of being acquired by FIC).
