EHF Champions League on TV in the UK
The European Handball Federation’s marketing arm, EHF Marketing GmbH, has today announced the signing of a new television deal with Premier Sports TV, bringing the VELUX EHF Champions League to a British television audience.
Premier Sports will show Match of the Week live or delayed with complete English commentary from each round of the competition as well as the highlights magazine, ‘REWIND – the handball show’ on a Monday evening. The next live match on the channel will be between Pick Szeged and Kadetten Schaffhausen on Saturday 6 October (16:15 hrs BST) with commentary from Tom O´Brannagáin.
Peter Vargo, Managing Director of EHF Marketing GmbH, said: “After the successful presentation of handball at the London 2012 Olympic Games we would like to establish the sport on UK television schedules. This will be a chance to promote the top product of European club handball and we believe that we can gain a solid foothold for the sport in the UK.” Up until now the handball fans in the UK have been able to watch delayed matches of the VELUX EHF Champions League on Eurosport 2.
