Eurosport’s approach to telling the stories of Olympic athletes all year round will continue in the lead up to Tokyo 2020 with the acquisition of rights to the new International Swimming League (ISL) competition for the next two years.
- Two-year deal will see Eurosport screen the new International Swimming League
- All seven matches to be screened on Eurosport and Eurosport Player*
- Deal includes digital rights and exclusive sublicense rights worldwide**
The ISL is set to feature some of the world’s finest swimmers including Adam Peaty, Katie Ledecky, Cate Campbell, Federica Pellegrini and Florent Manaudou in the first professional sports league for elite swimming, with Eurosport securing exclusive rights in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region in 2019 and 2020 (except Australia).
The ISL will engage swimming fans and beyond through cutting-edge production and a never-been-seen before live show during the meeting itself.
With the Olympic Games under a year away, the International Swimming League will be last opportunity for fans to watch the best swimmers on the planet compete against each other before they head to Japan next summer.
As part of the agreement with the ISL, Eurosport will also have digital rights to the competition and exclusive sublicense rights worldwide (except the USA and Australia).
