SPL chief executive Neil Doncaster has announced a nine-year international media rights partnership for the SPL with MP & Silva, beginning with the 2014-15 season.
MP & Silva will be the SPL’s overseas broadcast partner for all of the SPL’s live televised matches each season, exclusively distributing the live media rights across a variety of platforms, including cable, satellite, betting and mobile. European territories are not included in the deal.
Doncaster added: “MP & Silva are one of the most highly respected sports rights agencies, who work with the FA Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga to exploit some of the most valuable rights in the sporting world. We are delighted to have them as partners.”
Andrea Radrizzani, chief executive of MP & Silva Group, added: “MP & Silva has been doing a great job in distributing European football content internationally. Being appointed by the SPL is a worthy recognition of our leadership in the market and we are very excited to use our network of broadcasters to improve audiences of Scottish football outside Europe.”
