Sport1 acquires Spanish football rights

Dutch sports broadcaster Sport1 has acquired the rights to show the Spanish Primera División soccer tournament for the next three seasons.

This comes after the Chellomedia-owned broadcaster renewed the rights to show the UEFA Champions League for the next three seasons. Sport1 will air live games as well as edited highlights on its main channel as well as online and no less than four games from the Spanish competition live in HD each week.

Will Moerer, Sport1 general manager, said: “In addition to the English Premier League, our subscribers really enjoy the Spanish competition. It goes without saying that we are really pleased that we can continue to broadcast the Real Madrid and FC Barcelona games each week.”
