A multiplatform agreement with Concacaf brings exclusive U.S. English-language coverage of national team properties to Paramount+, with select matches on CBS Sports’ linear platforms.

The deal includes Concacaf qualifiers for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, the Concacaf Men’s Nations League and the Concacaf Women’s Nations League. Paramount+ will showcase more than 200 Concacaf national team matches live, including at least 80 Concacaf Women’s World Cup qualifying matches and more than 100 Concacaf Women’s Nations League contests. Last month, Paramount+ announced plans for coverage of 80 Concacaf Men’s World Cup qualifiers for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

“We are excited to continue the expansion of CBS Sports’ soccer portfolio across both the men’s and women’s game, and look forward to delivering competitive Concacaf national team action on Paramount+ and CBS Sports platforms,” said Jeffrey Gerttula, executive VP and general manager of CBS Sports Digital. “Paramount+ has truly become a year-round soccer destination, attracting a growing fanbase that’s hungry to watch the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams along with a variety of international soccer competitions.”

“We are extremely pleased to begin this new partnership with CBS Sports, which starts with our first-ever Concacaf Nations League Finals and includes our game-changing new women’s national team competitions,” said Concacaf General Secretary Philippe Moggio. “CBS Sports has an excellent track record of delivering outstanding live sports coverage, and their new Paramount+ platform is increasingly popular with fans. We look forward to working together to elevate men’s and women’s national team football in the Concacaf region.”
