beIN SPORTS acquires US rights to broadcast Dutch KNVB Cup


In the United States, beIN SPORTS has acquired the rights to show the Dutch Cup, also known as the KNVB Cup.

The KNVB Cup is a cup competition based on the format of England’s FA Cup. The competition was founded in 1898, and consists of all teams from the top three tiers of Dutch league football (Eredivisie, Eerste Divisie and Topklasse), as well as the 24 semi-finalists (or replacements) of regional amateur cup tournaments.

The second round of the competition is scheduled to begin today, October 25.

For viewers in the United States, beIN SPORTS will air the following two games this week:

Tuesday, October 25

Sparta Rotterdam vs. PSV Eindhoven (KNVB Cup – Round 2), 2:30pm, beIN SPORTS Connect and fuboTV (free trial)

Wednesday, October 26

Feyenoord vs. Excelsior (KNVB Cup – Round 2), 2:30pm, beIN SPORTS Connect and fuboTV (free trial)

If you don’t get beIN SPORTS Connect via your TV provider, you can watch beIN SPORTS Connect via a free 24-hour trial to fuboTV (watch the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to make it work).

In addition to the Dutch Cup, fuboTV provides legal streaming access to these other leagues and competitions: La Liga, Liga MX, MLS, Primeira Liga, Serie A, Ligue Un, League Cup, Brasileirao, Championship, CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers, NASL, Copa Argentina, 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup and 2019 Copa America.

With Eredivisie streaming rights in the United States being held up by NGSN who have been offline since March, the acquisition of the KNVB Cup gives Dutch soccer fans a rare chance to watch their favorite teams in the United States. There’s no firm date if and when NGSN will return to stream Eredivisie games, so the Dutch Cup on beIN SPORTS is the next best thing as well as the occasional PSV and Ajax games that are shown on Univision Deportes.
