Endemol Sport launched in January 2009. The group's projects around the world currently include the Dutch Premier League Eredivisie channel in the Netherlands, the English Premier League channels for Abu Dhabi Media in the Middle East, The Guinness Football Challenge Pan Africa, TV7 Sport channel in Kazakhstan and numerous international media partnerships with sports bodies and football clubs.
"Endemol’s Sport’s output has grown to a level where we need to bring it in line with how we develop and produce all our other content internationally," says Just Spee, chief financial officer of Endemol Group. "This new structure will allow us to continue building our business in this genre whilst delivering the best service to our clients at a local level. We are extremely grateful to Oldfield and Duffy for the role they have played in making Endemol the international player in sports entertainment that it is today and we wish them all the very best for the future.”
