The public broadcaster signed an agreement with the Polish Football Association
Polish Television with exclusive rights to football games. In the coming years, TVP viewers will get to watch Fortuna 1. Liga, 2. Liga, Fortuna Polish Cup and Polish SuperCup in men's football, Orlen Ekstraliga and Orlen Polish Cup finals in women's football, as well as matches of the Polish women's national team, men's youth national teams and futsal national teams. The public broadcaster has acquired exclusive television rights until 2027.
In the 2024/2025, 2025/2026 and 2026/2027 seasons, Polish Television viewers will get to watch at least 99 Fortuna Polish Cup matches at the central level (including all matches from the 1/8 stage of the tournament), as well as nearly 1,500 selected Fortuna 1. Liga and 2. Liga matches and the Polish Super Cup. TVP will also increase the number of 2. Liga matches broadcast under the current agreement for the 2023/2024 season.
The cooperation between TVP and the Polish Football Association also includes broadcasts of selected matches of the Women's Orlen Ekstraliga club and the finals of the Women's Orlen Polish Cup, as well as the games of the men's youth national teams (from U-15 to U-21), the women's national team (U-19 and senior women) and the futsal national team.
"Football is Poles' favourite sport. We identify with our teams and no matter what league they play in, we always consider them the best in the world. The ambition of public television is to provide access to as many Polish matches as possible on a free channel. The whole of Poland will be able to see their favourite teams only on Polish Television. TVP stands together with the fans of every Polish team. From the largest metropolis to the smallest town. Thanks to this agreement, we can stay closer to each other," said Mateusz Matyszkowicz, President of the Management Board of Polish Television.
Polish Television has acquired exclusive rights to broadcast the matches on linear television and on the Internet, mobile apps, as well as Smart TV and hybrid TV. As part of the cooperation, TVP will be given the title of "Major Television Partner" for all the games included in the agreement, and the public broadcaster's logos will be displayed, among others, in advertising materials, on websites, sports facilities and tickets.
"The mission of the Polish Football Association is to popularise football in our country. Thanks to the agreement with Polish Television, men's, women's and youth games will reach a wide audience. We are very pleased that the cooperation with such a great entity as Polish Television will last for three seasons. The public broadcaster, reaching almost every home in our country, is a guarantee that the competition on Polish pitches will be watched more and more willingly. We also hope that this will translate into higher attendance at football stadiums at various levels of competition," said Cezary Kulesza, President of the Polish Football Association.
During the term of the agreement, Polish Television will broadcast more than 1,700 matches. From the 2024/2025 season, League Magazines (Fortuna 1. Liga and 2. Liga) will also be broadcast on TVP Sport.
The new agreement also provides an opportunity for clubs or the Polish Football Association to produce and broadcast selected non-broadcast matches and make them available (with TVP's consent), including to local broadcasters.
