The Pakistan Super League, Global Sports Commerce (GSC), and beIN Media Group have announced a media rights agreement that will see beIN Sports broadcast the 2020 Pakistan Super League live in Australia, as well as showcasing a daily highlights programme to fans across Asia.
The one-season deal will see the pay-TV provider broadcast the tournament’s 34 live matches in Australia, as well as providing sports fans in the country with a daily highlights programme.
Daily highlights rights have been acquired across nine Asian territories: Cambodia, East Timor, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
The 2020 Pakistan Super League, which is set to take place between February 20th and March 22nd, will be held entirely in Pakistan for the first time.
Mike Kerr, Managing Director at beIN Asia Pacific, said: “In a major year for Twenty20 cricket in Australia, we’re delighted to have secured the live rights to the 2020 Pakistan Super League further expanding our sports offering to subscribers in the country.”
Matches will be produced by Tower Sports and SportzWorkz after the Pakistani and Singaporean businesses were successful in the Pakistan Cricket Board’s production tender process.
