beIN SPORTS to broadcast Turkish Süper Lig games

After losing the rights to the EFL Championship and EFL Cup to ESPN, beIN SPORTS will be adding the Turkish Süper Lig to its coverage of world sports, a source has revealed to World Soccer Talk.

beIN SPORTS will broadcast one Turkish Süper Lig match per round to viewers in the United States.

The 2017/18 Turkish Süper Lig season begins on Friday, August 11. As of press time, beIN SPORTS hasn’t announced which game from gameweek 1 will be shown to viewers in the United States. It’s likely that the game will be made available via beIN SPORTS Connect, which is also integrated into the streaming service fuboTV.

The Süper Lig is the top-flight soccer league in Turkey featuring many well-supported clubs such as Fenerbahçe, Galatasaray, Beşiktaş and Trabzonspor.

For the 2016/17 season, Beşiktaş were champions who — along with İstanbul Başakşehir — qualified for the UEFA Champions League, while Fenerbahçe, Galatasaray and Konyaspor qualified for the Europa League.

The addition of the Turkish Süper Lig to beIN SPORTS in the United States is part of an effort by beIN Media Group to purchase international rights to the Turkish Süper Lig around the world. Previously, the rights were owned for more than a decade by Digiturk.

      All, or at least more, should be available through beIN Connect, which you should have access to if you subscribe to beIN.

      Only La Liga gets almost all of the matches televised.

    Just wish it were more than one fixture per week.

    I dont want to pay 350 dollars a year to watch Digiturk in The USA. So if they bring Turkish League I know literally at least 20 people who will subscribe. My point is , it would be a WIN WIN WIN situation to broadcast Super Lig. For supporters, for BEIN and Turkish Super Lig

      I’d guess less than 5,000 would actually subscribe (and that’s being generous), and a lot of subscribers would share passwords.

    Do not expect too much. There is a huge power on the league by the government. Fenerbahçe-Galatasaray and Beşiktaş are the top 3 teams. Others teams have no purpose. Some matches are fixed, everybody might know the results before the games. For instance last season there is a big clash in the relegation zone for the last spot which is safe and Bursaspor has very long lose row and last match they were against europe league contender Trabzonspor. Trabzon was the home team and they got lead so Bursaspor was going to down, but suddenly Bursaspor turned back and didn’t go down. This was known by all of us a week before the match. I guarantee that MLS is better than Turkish Super League. I am a fan of Fenerbahçe but unfortunately we have a president who thinks Fenerbahçe is his team and nobody can get his seat.

    I’m writing from Turkey. It’s a good progress to broadcast Turkish League out of the country. However, don’t expect too much. The quality of football in Turkey is not so high unfortunately. For two years Beşiktaş and Başakşehir only play well and entartaining football. I hope so galatasaray, fenerbahçe and trabzonspor increase their quality and improve their game style.

    This season high grade players have been transferred into turkish league. For example, pepe, jeremain lens, negredo for Beşiktaş, valbuena and dirar for Fenerbahçe, maicon, gomis and belhanda for Galatasaray. Moreover; quaresma, van persie, talisca, muslera, eto’o, wagner love, babel, adebayor, isla, clichy are well known players of the league.

    Remember which country is helping out Qatar. Doubt the rights, itself, are worth more than a nominal fee.

    That’s awesome, the Turkish league is a top 10 league in Europe, in terms of both top of the table competitiveness and quality of football!

    Why don’t bein get the eredivisie ?? I been wanting this league back real bad on us tv

      Because Eredivisie rights in the U.S. are marketed by IMG Sports Media, which is a U.S. company with a division based in the U.K. IMG’s books are under heavy scrutiny by U.S. and U.K. government agencies.

      beIN likes to hide behind brokers such as MP & Silva and Pitch International so that the likes of Nasser and Youssef can hide details of their alleged “private banking” activities every time beIN does a TV rights deal.

    Any Idea how much this TV deal is worth? Is this a new initiative from the Turkish League to bring in revenue from TV?
