ESPN has confirmed that this Saturday’s Old Firm Derby between Celtic and Rangers will be streamed live for viewers in the United States via ESPN+.
The first Old Firm derby of the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership season will kick off at 7:30AM ET live from Celtic Park in Glasgow. In the last Old Firm derby, Rangers won the match 2-1.
While the Scottish Premiership has lost some of the gloss of its glory years, there’s no doubt that the Old Firm derby is one of the world’s most famous and passionate derbies in world football.
In August, World Soccer Talk reported that the Scottish Professional Football League and ESPN+ were working out the final details of a five-year deal. Unfortunately we have no additional information to share at this time. It’s quite possible that Saturday’s match could be a one-off event until a deal is agreed and announced at some point in the future.
In addition to the Old Firm derby, ESPN+ streams the Bundesliga, Serie A, UEFA Nations League, Championship, League One, League Two, FA Cup, League Cup, MLS, Leagues Cup, US Open Cup, USL, International Champions Cup, Coppa Italia, Supercoppa Italiana, Eredivisie, Danish Superliga, Chinese Super League, Indian Super League, Australian A-League, Sweden’s Allsvenskan, FA Community Shield.
ESPN+ is priced at $5.99 per month and is available on Apple/PC computers, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android phone, Android tablet, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire tablet, Roku, Chromecast, PlayStation 4, Oculus Go, Samsung Smart TV and XBOX One.
