Does Anyone Want La Liga TV Rights In The United States?

goltv logo Does Anyone Want La Liga TV Rights In The United States?GolTV’s contract to show La Liga matches in the United States ends this season, but the big question is whether GolTV or another broadcaster will pick up the rights for next season.

La Liga Talk received an anonymous rumor this week stating that GolTV has entered a bid to renew the TV rights but MediaPro, a communications company, is unhappy with the bid from GolTV. The bid is allegedly a lot less than when GolTV bid last time.

If GolTV isn’t able to win the bid for next season, maybe Fox Soccer Channel would be interested since there’s a good chance they may lose the Premier League TV rights to ESPN and/or Setanta when bidding closes within the next two months.
