LaLiga has expanded its relations with Optus Sport, which has secured the exclusive Australian rights to stream the Spanish top-flight.
The multi-year deal gives the platform an additional 380 matches per season from LaLiga live and on-demand and will also include select matches from LaLiga SmartBank – Spain’s second football tier.
The partners will also offer promotion playoffs and ‘a range’ of other highlights, news and review programmes.
Melcior Soler, LaLiga’s Audiovisual Director, stated “At LaLiga we always look for best-in-class partners to deliver Spanish football to fans everywhere. Our agreement with Optus Sport ensures people in Australia will be able to enjoy LaLiga to the fullest.
“This is going to be even more important now to fans down under with some of Australia´s top talent represented in LaLiga clubs”.
The LaLiga announcement follows news earlier that Optus Sport has also acquired the exclusive Australian rights to UEFA EURO 2024.
