Eurosport to broadcast Pro D2 globally

Eurosport has extended its agreement with France's Ligue Nationale de Rugby and will broadcast the second-tier Pro D2 league across Europe via its OTT Eurosport Player.

The five-year agreement, which also includes live rights across the Asia-Pacific region, will begin with the start of the 2015/16 season and follows Eurosport's recent acquisition of live rights in France. Eurosport will broadcast up to seven of the eight games during each round of matches in France from next season, either via its television channel or the Eurosport Player.

The Pro D2 league offers promotion to the Top 14, France's premier rugby union league.

“I’m delighted by today’s announcement which reinforces our ongoing strategy of delivering the highest quality live sports programming across all our platforms," said Peter Hutton, the newly-appointed chief executive of Discovery-owned Eurosport. 

"By making Pro D2 matches available on the Eurosport Player, we are significantly enhancing our OTT offer, which already includes some of the world’s most exciting sports. And in Asia-Pacific, where we are committed to developing our content portfolio, Pro D2 is the perfect complement to the existing rugby offer which currently includes rugby union Top 14.”
