Romania: Eurosport retains Premier League

February 19, 2016

Eurosport has retained the Romanian broadcast rights to the English Premier League. The pan-European broadcaster will continue to provide coverage of the league for the next three seasons across its TV and online platforms.

Eurosport originally picked up the Romanian rights to the Premier League in December 2013, stepping in after the league’s deal with Multi Media Sports Group (MMS) was terminated. Financial terms of the renewal have not been disclosed.

“There is a passionate football following in Romania who have enjoyed the Premier League on Eurosport since 2013,” said Eurosport chief executive Peter Hutton. “We are delighted to be able to continue to fuel that passion for three more seasons in a deal that demonstrates our commitment to invest in premier sports events.”
