BeIN Media Group and Major League Baseball (MLB) have announced a two-year media rights renewal agreement which will see beIN Sports broadcast the 2020 and 2021 MLB seasons across 24 territories in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and in France.
The delayed and shortened 2020 MLB season began on July 23 and will finish on September 27. Under the deal, beIN will be the exclusive broadcaster of MLB’s major events – the MLB All-Star Game, the World Series, and MLB Playoffs until the end of the 2021 season in France and the MENA region. In addition, beIN Sports will broadcast a minimum of two MLB matches per week throughout the regular season.
Commenting on the renewed deal, Richard Verow, Chief Sports Officer at beIN Media Group, said: “We are delighted to have renewed our agreement with Major League Baseball until 2021 for fans in France and across the Middle East and North Africa. With dedicated programmes on-screen, our subscribers will enjoy, once again, the best of American baseball on beIN Sports.”
