Sky Sports will remain the home of La Liga football for another three seasons following a new broadcast agreement.
Sky viewers will be able to follow Real Madrid, Barcelona and the stars of Spanish football as part of a schedule of over 100 live La Liga matches a season, including the mouth-watering ‘El Classico’ fixtures. The deal also includes the Final of the Copa del Rey, won last season by Barcelona.
“This is fantastic news for Sky Sports and strengthens our position as the first choice of sport in the UK and Ireland,” said Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports.
“The agreement means our viewers can enjoy the likes of Ronaldo, Messi, Bale and Neymar week in week out throughout the football season. Add to that the ‘El Classico’ clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona in the league and Sky Sports viewers are sure to see some of the best football moments throughout the season. We’re proud to take our partnership with La Liga into its 20th year and remain the home of Spanish football for another three years.”
The agreement extends the partnership between Sky Sports and La Liga into its 20th year and helps ensure viewers can enjoy an unrivalled choice of sport across seven dedicated sports channels and Sky’s award winning digital services.
Javier Tebas, president of La Liga, added: “Sky Sports is the leading sports broadcaster for the UK and Ireland and we are delighted to continue our partnership with them for another three years. La Liga has a huge global fan base and by renewing with Sky Sports, the agreement provides us with the best possible way to showcase our league, our teams and our players to our UK and Irish audience.”
