Facebook buys bigger sports rights

Facebook will show Premier League football - every match - in Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia from 2019 to 2022. Reportedly, the deal is worth 265mn USD. Additionally, they partnered up with Eleven Sports to show a weekly game of Serie A or LaLiga live on Facebook in the UK. Eleven Sports sells subscription packages and uses free-to-air coverage to generate exposure for their content and their partners. This will now happen on their Facebook page.
Slowly but surely Facebook establishes a global sports rights portfolio and will probably continue to expand it; it will be interesting to see their approach in advertising and sponsoring around these products.
