It has acquired the dedicated club channels of Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea from the Premier League, as well as AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund and the Real Madrid and Barcelona networks.
GMM will broadcast selected live games and club programming on its own suite of channels, including GMM Z Sport One.
