Sportfive is an international sports rights marketing agency with a global network of locations and affiliated companies. Sportfive was formed in 2001 when the European Commission unconditionally approved the merger between the sports rights activities of Jean-Claude Darmon, Sport+, a subsidiary of Canal+ Group, and RTL Group’s sports rights division, UFA Sports. In 2004 the private equity firm Advent International finalised its acquisition of Sportfive, and in November 2006 sold it to the French media giant Lagardère for an estimated €865 million. Since that time, Sportfive has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Lagardère.
