Mediapro has secured the media rights in Canada to the inaugural season of the Concacaf Nations League.

The new three-tier men’s national football team competition involving all 41 Concacaf Member Associations will feature 102 group stage matches in its 2019-20 season, including the Final Championship’s two semifinals, the third-place match and the final. All of the matches will be aired on the OneSoccer digital platform, and all Canada games will be enhanced by live studio pre-, half-time and post-match shows as well as interviews, features and other content. Per the deal, OneSoccer subscribers will be able to view all Concacaf Nations League matches at no extra charge.

The season kicks off on September 5 with a match between League C teams U.S. Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands. Canada’s first League A match will take place on September 7 at BMO Field in Toronto against Cuba.
