ESPN will remain the exclusive broadcaster of the Dutch elite football league until 2030 after all 18 Eredivisie clubs approved a deal worth €750 million.
The new agreement includes rights to all Eredivisie matches, as well as all matches in the men’s second division and women’s Dutch Premier League from 2024; ESPN has stopped broadcasting Division II matches in 2021.
Both ESPN and Eredivisie CV, the commercial body that manages the broadcast rights, said the agreement will have a positive impact on Dutch football in all aspects and will increase revenue.
The deal expands on a relationship that began in 2012 when Fox Sports, which became ESPN in 2019, acquired a majority stake in Eredivisie Live in 2008.
