UEFA has awarded the UEFA EURO 2012™ and UEFA EURO 2016™ media rights in the Middle East and North Africa to Al Jazeera Sport.
Al Jazeera Sport is a long-term UEFA partner for national-team competitions in the Middle East and North Africa. They have been broadcasting the UEFA European Championship since 2004 and have a proven track record of high quality production and programming. They currently also exploit the media rights for the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League for the period 2009-12.
Al Jazeera Sport is committed to providing strong and extensive coverage on its pay platform which will deliver UEFA EURO 2012™ and UEFA EURO 2016™ to football fans throughout the Middle East and North Africa. In addition, Al Jazeera Sport will provide delayed coverage of the competition on its free-to-air sports channel. The platform neutral approach undertaken by UEFA means that Al Jazeera Sport has also been granted internet and mobile exploitation for all matches.
UEFA said: "UEFA is delighted to further extend its successful partnership with Al Jazeera Sport in the Middle East and North Africa. Al Jazeera Sport is a reliable partner whose high production standards will help promote football in the region and we are looking forward to continuing our long-standing collaboration with them in order to further enhance the football fans' EURO viewing experience."
