Galleon Holdings has signed a deal with Media Star Global for its "Super Soccer Star" across regions in North Africa.
Produced in association with the U.K.'s Chelsea Football Club, "Super Soccer Star" is a multi-platform entertainment property, which includes a prime time reality show to find the best football players ages 13 to 16.
The North African contract covers Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia. Media Star Global also holds territory rights to "Super Soccer Star" in India and Middle East.
"'Super Soccer Star' has been a huge success in China and Malaysia and we continue to secure agreements to roll out this property globally," says Stephen Green, chief executive officer of Galleon Holdings. "This agreement follows territory deals with IMG in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, and our other production partners in China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, India and the Middle East, demonstrating our ability to develop 'Super Soccer Star' into a global entertainment brand."
"Our initial contract with Galleon and Chelsea FC across India and the Middle East is progressing well and we are excited to have the opportunity to work with Galleon in the additional territories," says Wasim Haq, chief executive officer of Media Star Global. "Following the success in China and Malaysia, we believe 'Super Soccer Star' has the right ingredients to achieve success in North Africa, as well as the Middle East and India."
