ZDF Extends Champions League Broadcast Deal; Sport1 Acquires Handball Euro Rights
Published December 13, 2013
HANDBALL EURO: QUOTENMETER's Weis also reported German sports network Sport1 "has acquired exclusive TV rights for the 2014 European Men's Handball Championship." Sport1 "will show a minimum of 22 games from the event, which takes place in Denmark between Jan. 12-26, including both semifinals and the final." The network "reached a corresponding agreement with sports marketing agency Infront Sports & Media." In Germany, handball world and European championships "usually air on public broadcasters ARD and ZDF." However, the German national team "failed to qualify for the '14 event and therefore the interest in the rights from ARD and ZDF seemed very small" (QUOTENEMETER, 12/12).
