Premier Sports will also launch LaLiga channel as an OTT service on its Premier Player in October and on Sky by January 2020. It will be available for £11.99 per month as part of the Premier Sports bundle or £5.99 as a standalone service.
“LaLiga is enjoyed across the globe, with an especially passionate fanbase in the UK and Ireland. Through our long-term partnership with Premier Sports, we’re happy to give fans of Spanish football a chance to enjoy LaLiga’s world-class content in a variety of formats,” said LaLiga President, Javier Tebas.
There had been doubts over the coverage of LaLiga in the UK market after ElevenSports pulled out of its contract at the end of last season. ITV picked up the season climax and has screened the first three weeks of the new campaign.
Richard Sweeney, CEO of Premier Sports said: “We are thrilled to be announcing this truly unique and game-changing agreement with LaLiga that signals the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Spanish football in the UK.”
Premier Sports will run a full programme of live matches from LaLiga Santander across Premier Sports 1 and 2 HD channels this weekend with extensive coverage in future weeks.
