Eleven Sports secures Copa Del Rey semi-final rights

Eleven Sports has secured rights to the Copa del Rey semi-final between Barcelona and Real Madrid in the UK, Ireland, Belgium and Poland.

The semi-final will be held over two legs on February 6 and 27 and Eleven will also broadcast Real Madrid’s LaLiga match against Barcelona on March 2.

The news comes a week after Eleven ceded its Italian Serie A and Dutch Eredivisie football rights to UK broadcaster Premier Sports after ending its partnership with IMG, the agency that manages these rights.

In a statement last week, the streaming service said that it will continue to show live coverage of LaLiga football in the UK and Ireland until the end of the season, “with the intention of continuing beyond”.
