Eurosport has won the UK and Ireland broadcast and digital rights for the CAF Africa Cup of Nations 2017 and 2019, as the Ivory Coast look to defend their 2015 title in the host nation of Gabon this coming January.
The new deal to broadcast the next two editions extends the long-standing relationship between the CAF Africa Cup of Nations and Eurosport which has televised the tournament in the UK and Ireland every year since 1994.
Eurosport will show the games live on Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 with all matches streamed live on the Eurosport Player.
Simon Downing, Head of Eurosport UK and Ireland said: “We are delighted to have secured the Africa Cup of Nations 2017 and 2019 to show live on Eurosport and the Eurosport Player. Africa’s number one sport brings the continent together like nothing else and we are thrilled to cover every moment from the Africa Cup of Nations for football fans in the UK and Ireland once more.”
