Eleven Belgium scores Ligue 1 rights

November 17, 2021

Eleven Belgium will be bringing fans live and exclusive coverage from Ligue 1, Frances’s top flight football league, for the next three seasons.

This agreement was negotiated with beIN Sports, the global sales partner of Ligue 1 Uber Eats.

Eleven will make the best of the action from the French league available on its OTT platform and app in Belgium and Luxembourg, starting from November 20th. Eleven will stream an average of seven fixtures each matchday, with the two most popular games offered in both French and Dutch commentary.

Guillaume Collard, Eleven Belgium & Luxembourg MD and Group Chief Rights Acquisitions & Distribution Officer, said: “We want to deliver the very best live sport to our audiences and Ligue 1 Uber Eats is a fantastic addition to our portfolio. We know our subscribers are going to enjoy keeping up with Messi and co at PSG alongside all the top Belgian talent playing in the French league.”

Mathieu Ficot, Deputy Managing Director of the LFP, added: “We are delighted that Ligue 1 UberEats is making its return to Belgian screens with a broadcaster as well known as Eleven. This new agreement demonstrates the growing international appeal of Ligue 1 Uber Eats, now available in 213 territories around the world.”

The Eleven Group also has Ligue 1 Uber Eats rights in Portugal and Poland.
