ESPN+ picks up US rights to Scottish FA Cup

ESPN’s paid streaming service ESPN+ has added the Scottish FA Cup to its growing list of soccer properties in the United States.

The 4th Round of the Scottish Cup kicks off on Friday, January 18 with Cowdenbeath hosting Rangers. That’s followed on Saturday with Celtic against Airdrie, while Sunday features Hearts versus Livingston for a weekend featuring three of the biggest football clubs from Scotland.

The Scottish Football Association Challenge Cup, commonly known as the Scottish Cup, is an annual association football knock-out cup competition. The competition was first held in 1873–74.

The interesting dynamic is that B/R Live continues to own the US rights to the Scottish League Cup and Scottish Premiership, while ESPN+ will be broadcasting the Scottish FA Cup games (as well as English FA Cup matches). Previously, GolTV had the rights to the Scottish FA Cup in the United States.

Now with ESPN+, you can also stream Serie A, UEFA Nations League, Championship, League One, League Two, FA Cup, League Cup, Coppa Italia, Supercoppa Italiana, Eredivisie, Danish Superliga, Chinese Super League, Indian Super League, Australian A-League, Sweden’s Allsvenskan, MLS out-of-market games and USL.

ESPN+ is only $4.99/month after a free 7-day trial.
