LaLiga & ITV Extend Broadcast Partnership


ADVERTISEMENT

LaLiga and ITV have confirmed that they have inked an agreement to continue their broadcast partnership in the U.K. and Ireland.

ITV’s live coverage of the 2019-20 LaLiga season will commence with Friday’s opener between Athletic Club and FC Barcelona, which will be available free-to-air on ITV4 and on ITV Hub LIVE. As per the rights deal, a game from each of the first three matchdays of the new season will be shown live. Barcelona’s first home game against Real Betis (August 25) and Real Madrid versus Villarreal (September 1) will follow the season opener.

ITV4 picked up LaLiga broadcast rights during the final months of last season after Eleven Sports cut short their agreement. In addition to the live matches, weekly highlights from LaLiga will be shown on both ITV and ITV4.
