The sports broadcasting company also boosts its portfolio with the likes of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Europa Conference League, Emirates FA Cup, Durand Cup, Bundesliga and more.

After missing out on multiple cricket competitions, Sony Sports Network has managed to hold its ground by retaining and acquiring some of the highly-ranked global football competitions.
