Mexican Football Games to Air in MENA


TV Azteca International has struck a deal that will see the Mexican football matches broadcast by TV Azteca airing in the Middle East and North Africa.

Grupo Bastione licensed matches of the Mexican football league for the MENA region. The live games of Fut Azteca from the Liga MX will be broadcasting on the new sports network My Sports 1 in My-HD.

“I decided to take the signal with graphics and commentators from the Mexican network, for the great quality and spectacle that TV Azteca has in the transmission of soccer matches,” said Fernando Fernández, CEO of Bastione Group. “They are two great shows at the same time: football matches on the one hand, and the way of narrating the games, on the other. Fut Azteca is a pioneer in Mexican soccer and in the transmission of soccer for more than 25 years. Its quality and experience are worthy of sharing among our fanatical spectators.”

Patricia Jasín, VP of TV Azteca International, said: “At TV Azteca International, we are proud to represent the high standards of local production that provide the framework of excellence to our content.”
