Univision Deportes acquires US Spanish-language rights to UEFA competitions


While Euro 2016 will be on ESPN this summer for English-language viewers, Univision Deportes has acquired the Spanish-language rights to the tournament, as well as other UEFA properties.

Univision Deportes has acquired the exclusive U.S. Spanish-language broadcast rights to all UEFA national team competitions from 2018 to 2022. This first-of-its-kind centralized deal will make Univision Deportes the Spanish-language home of European national team soccer in the U.S.

ESPN Deportes holds the Spanish-language rights to Euro 2016. Under the Univision deal, the new rights deal includes the UEFA EURO 2020, UEFA Nations League, UEFA Nations League Final Four and the European Qualifiers to the UEFA EURO 2020 as well as the European Qualifiers to the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Univision Deportes will be airing the matches across the portfolio of networks including UDN, Univision Network, UniMás, Galavision and will be streaming the properties via the Univision Deportes app.

Under the new rights deal, Univision Deportes will air multiple live matches on every match-day, daily match highlights on existing Univision Deportes programming and at least one match per kick-off slot for the UEFA Nations League, UEFA Nations League Final Four, the European Qualifiers to UEFA EURO 2020 and the European Qualifiers to the 2022 FIFA World Cup. For the UEFA EURO 2020, the rights deal includes airing of all matches live and daily match highlights on existing Univision Deportes programming.

    Good to see this happening. For me, this means more exposure to Euro football as Univision Deportes is very accessible compared to ESPN Deportes or Fox Deportes
