October 13, 2015
MTG has acquired the exclusive broadcast and online rights across the Nordic region (Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland) to top flight football from Spain’s La Liga and Italy’s Serie A until 2018. In addition, MTG has also extended its exclusive rights to France’s Ligue 1 in Denmark and Norway until 2018 to include Finland and Sweden from the beginning of next season.
Earlier this month MTG announced that it had won exclusive broadcast and online rights to English Premier League football in Sweden, Denmark and Finland from 2016-2019. MTG also holds the rights to UEFA Champions League football across the Nordic region until 2018.
“La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1 are amongst the leading and most watched football leagues in the world, so we are thrilled to add and extend these key premium rights to our international portfolio. We are the clear number 1 when it comes to not just football but sports coverage in the Nordics, and we will now be making even more exciting live content available to viewers on multiple platforms and screens.”
