MP & Silva distribute Premier League in APAC
November 13, 2015
MP & Silva continues its streak of securing top-flight football content, with the announcement of the English Premier League live audiovisual broadcast rights across all platforms, in East and Southeast Asia, including Live Matches and Clips Packages.
The international sports agency has secured a deal for the exclusive distribution rights of the Premier League in seven broadcasting territories, composed by 27 countries across Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Pacific Islands, Taiwan, Philippines and Mongolia for three seasons from 2016/17 to 2018/19.
Currently, 2.7 billion viewers around the world watch the English Premier League and the Asia and Oceania region makes up more than 38 per cent of that total figure.
Said Marco Auletta, MP & Silva’s Chief Executive Officer: “Given the star power attached to the English Premier League, we look forward to further strengthening the league’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region. We believe EPL’s fan base in these territories will continue to grow, and given the excitement over the signing of Japan International, Shinji Okazaki, to Leicester City, and South Korean Heung-Min Son to the Tottenham Hotspur, we can only expect this trend increasing.”
