Top flight Spanish football will remain in its current UK and Ireland home until at least mid-2025, following a new deal between Premier Sports and La Liga.
The rights renewal provides further stability for Spanish football fans with the announcement that La Liga TV will remain available on Amazon Prime Video Channels and the Premier Sports Player. Ongoing distribution of La Liga TV on other TV platforms has not been confirmed.
La Liga and Premier Sports have worked together since 2019, after La Liga terminated its previous UK broadcast deal with streaming service Eleven Sports. The Eleven Sports deal resulted in La Liga football disappearing off TV screens with Eleven failing to secure any carriage deals with traditional TV platform operators.
The new deal covers the following seasons: 2022/23, 2023/24 and 2024/25.
Richard Sweeney, CEO of Premier Sports said:
“We’re pleased to extend our relationship with La Liga until 2025. Since 2019, as Premier Sports and LaLiga have worked hand-in-hand to actively promote Spanish football, we’ve come to appreciate the deep-seated passion that makes La Liga the most popular foreign league on these shores. With our recent addition of rights to the UEFA Nations League and Euro 2024 Qualifiers, we continue to position Premier Sports as a go-to destination for football fans across the UK and Ireland.”
Melcior Soler, Audiovisual Director at La Liga added:
“These past three years have seen La Liga reach British and Irish viewers via a unique distribution strategy forged in partnership with Premier Sports. We look forward to continuing to innovate in our offering to the UK and Ireland markets, allowing viewers everywhere to enjoy the best that Spanish football has to offer.”
