In another landmark deal for the streaming service, fuboTV has agreed a deal with FOX Sports to stream select matches from UEFA competitions. These will include the option for fuboTV to stream Euro 2024 select games as well as matches from Euro 2028, as well as many other games.

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of the 2021 Q3 announcement that FOX Sports acquired rights to Euro 2024 and Euro 2028. With FOX Sports having limited streaming capabilities, it gives fuboTV an opportunity to shine. FOX Sports is a sister company of Tubi, the free ad-supported streaming service. However, Tubi isn’t a sports app and has very limited brand recognition among sports fans.

Through the deal with FOX, fuboTV will be home to a package of UEFA national team soccer matches through 2028.

UEFA rights

The company’s coverage includes select matches within the following events in all languages (except Spanish and Portuguese):

UEFA Nations League
European Qualifiers to UEFA Euro 2024 and 2028
European Qualifiers to FIFA World Cup 2026
Friendly Matches played by European nations controlled by UEFA
UEFA Euro 2024 (5 Matches)
UEFA Euro 2028 (5 Matches)

fuboTV’s exclusive UEFA coverage will stream on Fubo Sports Network, which is available as part of fuboTV’s base plan of 100+ sports, news and entertainment channels. Select UEFA matches and all re-airs will stream on Fubo Sports Network and its distribution partners. Those include Hisense Smart TVs, LG Channels, Sports on Tubi, Plex, Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel, Vizio and XUMO.

fuboTV acquiring soccer rights

fuboTV began life as a soccer streaming service in 2015. Since then, it has built a robust set of streaming capabilities. During the past two years, the streaming service has been acquiring exclusive rights to games too. Meanwhile, FOX Sports have the ability to cherrypick the European Championship games it wants to show on television. That allows fuboTV to stream Euro 2024 select games, exclusively.

This builds on fuboTV’s recent history of acquiring soccer rights. After getting its feet wet with the Russian Premier League in 2020, fuboTV got serious. It then acquired the rights to the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers in 2021. In doing so, it has been producing its own pre-match, half-time and post-match shoulder programming.

World Soccer Talk understands that fuboTV has built a strong team around rights acquisition. And with soccer rights for up grabs in the near future, including Major League Soccer, you can expect to see fubo in the headlines yet again. fubo has also been growing its Fubo Gaming division to expand sports betting into more states. Just last week, fuboTV announced a deal with Houston Dynamo to help pave the way for future gambling announcements in Texas.

fubo’s first matches under the deal with FOX Sports begin June 2022.
