Spanish media agency Mediapro has signed an agreement with regional football governing body Concacaf to broadcast major tournaments in South and Central America.

The agreement will cover a range of Concacaf competitions including the Concacaf Champions League and the 2021 Gold Cup. 

Mediapro has had an extensive working relationship with the governing body – responsible for association football in North America, Caribbean and Central America – for some time, and is looking to further enhance its presence in the LatAm region.

Tatxo Benet, Managing Partner of the Mediapro Group, said: “We are very proud of the confidence that Concacaf has shown us. The Group’s experience in sports rights management will be key to projecting the value of its competitions.”

The 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup will be the 16th edition of the tournament, with Mexico the defending champions, having defeated the US 1-0 in the 2019 final at the Soldier Field stadium in Chicago, Illinois.

Concacaf Secretary General, Philippe Moggio, added: “This is a very important year for our confederation and we are very excited to have signed a new international rights agreement with Mediapro.

“They have a significant global reach and will help us ensure that our 2021 Gold Cup and other major national team competitions are available to fans across the region and globally.”

Meanwhile, the Concacaf Champions League will commence in April 2021, with Mexican club Tigres UNAL defending its first title. The winner of the competition will progress to the quarter-finals of the FIFA Club World Cup.
