Eurosport has signed a deal with Major League Soccer (MLS) to broadcast MLS matches in all of its European territories except the UK.
The agreement runs from 2015 to 2018 and starts later this month, with the US soccer league’s season running from March to December.
The four-year deal includes TV and digital rights for all regular season matches, the AT&T MLS All-Star Game, MLS Play-Off matches, and the MLS Cup.
Games will be broadcast on both Eurosport and Eurosport 2 and made available through the Eurosport Player, Eurosport’s online subscription service.
“As we continue to improve the quality of Eurosport across the region, the new deal with the MLS is a significant step to increase our live football content as well as a sign of our belief in the potential of the league to continue to grow,” said Peter Hutton, CEO, Eurosport Group.
Last month, Sky took the exclusive UK broadcast rights for live MLS matches for the first time.
