Viaplay has secured the rights to bring Copa América 2021 and 2024 coverage to its subscribers.

Viaplay will bring all 28 matches of the 2021 tournament to its subscribers across its Nordic footprint. The 2024 tournament will be available on Viaplay in the Nordic and Baltic regions and in Poland.

NENT Group’s streaming service has also shored up the rights to the South American FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers and Brazil and Argentina’s friendly matches from 2022 to 2024.

Peter Nørrelund, NENT Group’s chief sports officer, noted, “The Copa América is the oldest international football competition and one of the most exciting. We offer premium sports from around the world throughout the year, and securing the next two editions of the Copa América means Viaplay viewers can look forward to thrilling sports summers lit up by many of the best footballers on the planet.”
