Eurosport and ESPN to Broadcast FIFA World Cup

Hi all,
Eurosport has secured live television rights to the Fifa Club World Cup in 26 European countries, with ESPN taking the UK rights. Live broadcasts of all eight games will be available on Eurosport in France, where free-to-air channel NT1 will share coverage of the two semi-finals and the final, and on Eurosport 2 in 22 other European countries.

Eurosport France has also secured the rights to the 2012 edition of the tournament. Eurosport Germany will air the semi-finals and final exclusively live in Germany, and in Austria and Luxembourg.

Coverage will also be available across Eurosport’s online and mobile platforms, with highlights and free video content available on the Eurosport website. In the UK, pay-TV channel ESPN will broadcast the semi-finals, final, and third-place play-off live. 
Uefa Champions League winners Barcelona and Copa Libertadores holders Santos will be the favourites for the 2011 Fifa Club World Cup, which will be played from 8th to 18th December in the Toyota City and Yokohama, Japan. [Source: Sport Pro Media]
