ESPN to telecast Calcutta Football League, IFA Shield


ESPNStar has once again acquired the telecast rights of Calcutta Football League and the IFA Shield. Last time CFL or IFA Shield was on ESPN in 2006.

The contract with a regional channel, News Time, has been annulled since the parent company of News Time channel is a chit fund group which has run into a serious financial trouble.

The deal was finalized with ESPN for 7 years. Indian Football Association (IFA) will be earning Rs 2 crore each year from this deal.

ESPN has agreed on using at least 5 camera angles for the telecast of the matches but only a selected few matches will be shown live.
