Fox Sports International was a premium television service in the Netherlands, owned by Eredivisie Media & Marketing CV (in which Fox Networks Group Benelux[1] (part of Fox) had 51% share and football clubs together with Endemol 49%) and launched on 17 August 2013.[2]

The service contained three channels covering several European football leagues and live tennis from the ATP World Tour and WTA Tour.[3]

On 1 October 2020, it was announced that the networks would rebrand as ESPN on 31 December 2020, due to the acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney.[4][5]
