Swiss Super League TV Coverage Comes To The USA (beINSports)

basel Swiss Super League TV Coverage Comes To The USA (beINSports)

beINSport’s streaming service – beinsportsconnect.tv – will present FC Basel v BSC Young Boys this Sunday (August 31st) at 10:00am ET. This is an introduction of a new league to soccer fans in the US.

The Swiss Super League is ranked #13 based on UEFA’s ranking by league coefficients. The league has a reputation for high scoring matches. Each side in the 10-team league plays the other teams four times for a total of 36 rounds. As far as beINSports is concerned, look for similar coverage to the Russian League which means limited viewing on their TV channels but regular coverage via streaming. beINSport’s French service shows the matches in Europe.

As far as top teams, FC Basel are definitely the team to beat in the Super League. They have won the last 5 consecutive titles, and 6 of the last 7. They currently lead the league with 15 points after 6 matches. They have been a regular in the UEFA Champions League in the past several years. Their biggest rivals over the past few years have been Grasshopper Zurich but this season it’s Grasshopper’s city rivals FC Zurich that seem to be Basel’s biggest threat.

In other TV broadcasting news. Portuguese Primeira Liga looks like the Univision Deportes has acquired Spanish-language rights to the league in the US. After posting matches last weekend only to pull them in the last minute, it seems that everything is finally ready to go ahead with Univision Deportes as they present FC Porto v Moreirense this Sunday (August 31st) at 2pm ET (2-hour delay due to Liga MX match). This is a good acquisition for Univision Deportes who lost the rights to France’s Ligue-1 matches to beINSports, who now own both English and Spanish language rights to France’s top division. Reminder, GOL-TV has acquired English and Spanish rights to Benfica home matches, albeit for delayed broadcast only. This Sunday they will show the Lisboa Derby between Benfica & Sporting at 8pm ET

beINSport’s advance schedule reveals live coverage on Friday, September 5th of the African Nations Cup qualifier between Sudan & South Africa (12:45pm ET). Friday is the start of the group stages in the qualifiers and hopefully this is a sign of more matches to come between now and the end of the year. Saturday the 6th has several interesting qualifiers and with the absence of European league action – for their own continental qualifiers – I hope to see more African Cup qualifiers scheduled.

    BeIn need a BeIN2 channel to show overflow games from La Liga, Seria A, Russian League, Switzerland, etc.

    They are now showing USA/Belgium, from the Volleyball World Cup, which is pretty awesome as this a beautiful game that doesn’t get much coverage here.
