Turkish Airlines EuroLeague secures Spanish audience with Movistar Plus+ deal

Broadcasting company Movistar Plus+ has been revealed as the new TV partner of EuroLeague Basketball in Spain. 

The Telefonica-owned media provider will give basketball fans in the country the chance to watch all Turkish Airlines EuroLeague games, including the ones played by the four Spanish teams in the 2023/24 season – Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz, FC Barcelona, Valencia Basket, as well as the current EuroLeague champions Real Madrid

Paulius Motiejunas, CEO of EuroLeague Basketball, commented: “We’re glad to find a new home in Movistar Plus+ for the next three seasons.

“Movistar Plus+ is synonymous with quality. I am sure that the large and growing fanbase in Spain will enjoy the broadcasts of the competition, and not only the live games but also the extensive programming around them.”

Starting from 5 October, Movistar Plus+ will show the top two games from each round to all of its customers, while up to five games per round and all fixtures by Spanish teams will be available through Movistar’s premium offering. 

Movistar Plus+ showcased the elite European basketball competition until the 2019/20 season, with the new deal not only confirming the broadcaster as EuroLeague Basketball’s preferable partner, but also adding to its current rights holder portfolio with the NBA and the Spanish domestic league (ACB).

Enric Rojas, Movistar Plus+ Sports Director, added: “We at Movistar Plus+ are all especially happy to have the EuroLeague once again joining our sports content portfolio. 

“We have made great efforts to become one more time the main reference for all basketball fans by gathering together the top competitions both on a national and international level: the ACB, the NBA and, of course, the EuroLeague.

“We will work very hard to meet that commitment and make sure fans enjoy the show.”
