beIN Sports has added La Liga and Copa Del Rey and its line-up of exclusive football coverage.
From the coming season, beIN will offer exclusive access to eight matches every match day, one of which will always be either Real Madrid or FC Barcelona, as well as one ‘Clasico’.
With this package, beIN SPORTS completes its football offer, which already boasts the UEFA-Champions League and UEFA-Europa League.
La Liga awarded beIN Sports the rights to batch 6 of La Liga rights, corresponding to the broadcast of eight matches every league match day, one of which will always be either Real Madrid or FC Barcelona, as well as one Clasico per season, in addition to the corresponding pay-per-view rights to the Copa del Rey. The award of this rights package now means that the beIN Sports channel will be able to offer its subscribers top football content starting next season: 8 La Liga matches each match day, the complete Champions, the complete Europa League, as well as all the major leagues and international competitions.
Nasser Al Khelaifi, chairman and CEO of beIN Media Group says: “We entered the Spanish market a few months ago with the commitment to build the best and most comprehensive sports offering in Spain. We have delivered on that commitment by investing significantly in the UEFA Champions league and by further adding other major European leagues. Along with Mediapro we are proud to announce the addition of La Liga to our line-up, which represents for many, the very best league and teams in the world.
"beIN Sports is now the home of La Liga in Spain. We believe in the growth of the Spanish broadcast, media and Pay TV markets and we will continue offer our subscribers the very best sport and world class production,” he added.
Mediapro said that by incorporating these rights beIN Sports has become the reference channel for football fans.
