The pay-television operator StarTimes has been trying to secure rights to a domestic league in a Francophone country for over two years, having previously attempted and failed to secure rights to the Cameroonian Elite One and the Cote d’Ivoire Ligue 1.

This long-term deal to the Senegalese Ligue 1 will run for 10 seasons, from 2018-19 to 2027-28. Furthermore, StarTimes has already acquired 10-season deals for domestic leagues in Ghana and Uganda.
