Galleon Holdings has signed two deals with entertainment company Media Star Global for the territory rights to "Super Soccer Star" in India and the Middle East.

Produced in association with the U.K.'s Chelsea Football Club, Super Soccer Star is a multi-platform entertainment property that includes a prime-time reality show to find the best young football players between 13- and 16-years-old.

Under the terms of the deal, Galleon will receive a non-refundable but recoupable advance of $200,000 and $175,000 for the Indian and Middle Eastern territories, respectively, with a revenue share of net income. The Middle East contract covers the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

As with previous series of Super Soccer Star in China and Malaysia, online recruitment and TV promotion will take place in the build-up to the show and additional brand sponsors will be signed. The show generates revenues from mobile and online voting, sponsorship, advertising and branded merchandise.

"The success of Super Soccer Star in China and Malaysia has enabled us to expand the show into new regions," says Stephen Green, Galleon chief executive officer. "India and the Middle East are key regions that offer a huge potential for this property."
