As the Premier League has returned in England, ESPN and DirecTV have announced comprehensive coverage of the major European football leagues across Latin America.
Last night's Arsenal vs Leicester match was covered by ESPN across Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. DirecTV Sports will start covering the English Premier League today.
The AT&T network is also covering France’s Ligue 1, which started a week ago, in a season in which Neymar’s signing by PSG will attract a great deal of attention. From 19 August, DirecTV Sports will also broadcast Spain’s La Liga, while the first Clasico of the season, the country’s Supercopa between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, will be covered earlier on 13 and 16 August.
Through its multi-channel and multi-platform sports offering, ESPN will deliver even more competitions. In addition to covering the Premier League, Ligue 1 and La Liga, ESPN is also broadcasting Portugal’s Primeira Liga, the Netherlands’ Eredivise, the UEFA qualifying games and the competitions of Belgium and Scotland.
