Hungarian football rights awarded to Chello and public broadcaster
The Hungarian Football Association (MLSZ) has awarded the rights to the next four domestic football championships to public broadcaster Magyar Televizió and Chello Central Europe’s Sport TV.
The joint tender, known as Chello Central Europe and Media Service Support and Asset Management Fund (MTVA), means the two broadcasters will share the first to the first and second division Hungarian National Championships, the Hungarian Cup, the Amateur Cup, the League Cup and the Super Cup tournaments until 2016.
“Since its inception, Chello Central Europe, operator of the Sport TV channels, has been a committed supporter of Hungarian football. It is a great pleasure that we can in the next four years continue the joint work we began with the MLSZ and the MTVA, providing even more Hungarian football for the viewers of Sport TV,” said Levente Málnay, CEO of Chello Central Europe.
