Eurosport has extended its Bundesliga broadcast deal with DFL Sports Enterprises to take in the Netherlands.
The extension of the agreement gives Eurosport TV and digital rights for all Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 games in the Netherlands from the start of the 2012/13 season to the end of 2014/15. Coverage will include five live matches per week, a weekly highlights programme, dedicated magazine shows, interviews and expert insight from top consultants.
The deal means Eurosport 2 will broadcast the Bundesliga in 23 countries.
"We are delighted to again extend our partnership with DFL to bring Bundesliga action to fans in the Netherlands," said Laurent Eric Le Lay, Eurosport's chairman and chief executive. "Eurosport 2 has significantly contributed to increased international reach and ratings for the Bundesliga and this new deal with DFL confirms our strategy for the acquisition of premium rights and enhances the regional offer of the channel."
