LONDON: Sky Sports will remain the UK broadcasting ‘venue’ for Spanish league coverage for a further three seasons.

The deal mintains a schedule of over 100 live La Liga matches a season, including the Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona. It also includes the final of the Spanish cup, won last season by Barcelona.

The agreement extends the partnership between Sky Sports and La Liga into its 20th year and helps ensure viewers can enjoy an unrivalled choice of sport across seven dedicated sports channels and Sky’s award winning digital services.

Javier Tebas, president of La Liga, said: “La Liga has a huge global fan base and by renewing with Sky Sports, the agreement provides us with the best possible way to showcase our league, our teams and our players to our UK and Irish audience.”
