The deal, which includes distribution rights, comes after the European Olympic Committees (EOC) and Eurovision Sport finalised an exclusive memorandum of understanding on media rights last year.
The EBU agreement will provide for free-to-air (FTA) coverage of the next two editions of the Games, starting with the 2023 event in Poland. The EBU’s coverage will cover all 25 sports at the European Games, producing content for linear channels and digital platforms.
“This is a landmark milestone for the European Games that will elevate the event to new heights,” said Spyros Capralos, president of the EOC.
“Partnering with the EBU for the next two editions will ensure sports fans can follow the journeys of Europe’s elite level stars, many of whom will be battling for a place at the Olympic Games.
“We are excited to work in partnership with the EBU to deliver an event that will inspire a more active future for Europe.”
Glen Killane, executive director of Eurovision Sport, added: “The EBU and our Members are thrilled to be cementing our relationship with the European Olympic Committees in this ground-breaking agreement.
“The addition of the European Games means that the EBU and our members can truly claim to be world leaders in broadcasting and producing multisport events. We look forward to forging an even stronger relationship with our partners at EOC beginning in Poland next year.” SportsPro Media
