MP & Silva acquired the Italian league’s international rights for the next three football seasons, and will continue to manage the worldwide distribution from season 2015-2016 to 2017- 2018, after successfully winning the tender launched by the Lega Serie A.
The agreement includes the audiovisual rights to distribute the Serie A globally in all countries of the world outside Italy - including the live broadcast rights for all matches of the Serie A championships, the Serie A Magazine, the Serie A highlights and the right to produce pre-match, half-time and post-match content, including footage highlights and interviews.
The MP & Silva group has been managing and distributing the Italian Serie A international rights since 2004.
MP & Silva has more than 60 international sports media rights properties, such as the English Premier League, French Ligue 1, NBA, FIFA and Formula One, amongst others.
Riccardo Silva, founding partner of MP & Silva, commented: “With our international reach and commercial strength we will continue to give Lega Serie A an increasing visibility. Sports have the potential to bring crowds together and we are happy to be part of the growth of one of the best-known leagues in the world.”
