Fox renews Champions League deal
[SOCCER ON THE AIR] The UEFA Champions League will remain in Fox Sports through the 2017-18 season.
Fox Sports also renewed its exclusive media rights
agreement in the United States and Caribbean to the Europa League for three additional seasons.
It has been the English- and Spanish-language rights holder in the United States and
Caribbean for the Champions League since the 2009-10 season and Europa League since 2012-13.
Fox is carrying the UEFA Champions League on the new Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2, as well as
Fox Deportes, Fox Sports regional networks and Fox Soccer Plus. Until this year, it carried its soccer on Fox Soccer, which was folded after the launch of FS1 and FS2.
elated to continue our partnership with UEFA and serve as home of its flagship properties through at least 2018,” said David Nathanson, general manager
and chief operating officer of FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2, in a statement. “The combination of UEFA Champions and Europa leagues provides viewers with the complete club competition experience
at the highest level.
Fox plans to carry 146 UEFA Champions League games annually on its various networks, plus games on authenticated/premium broadband platforms Fox Sports Gp and
FoxSoccer2Go including all matches carried live and on-demand
