Now Liga MX added to Mediapro Canada's fledgling OneSoccer service
Liga MX, the top Mexican soccer league, today became the latest property to be snapped up by Mediapro Canada, the division of the Spanish sports rights and production agency, for its burgeoning OneSoccer streaming platform.
Mediapro has acquired the English- and Spanish-language rights, with coverage to begin on 20 July, the start of the 2019 Torneo Apertura, the first half of the season.
OneSoccer will stream two matches per week, covering the home games of Club América, Cruz Azul, FC Juárez, Necaxa, Pumas UNAM, Tigres UANL and Toluca.
Local interest will come in the shape of Canadian international Lucas Cavallini (pictured), a striker for Puebla FC.
Oscar López, chief executive of Mediapro Canada, said: "We know that fans have been crying out for regular coverage of the LigaMX in Canada, and we are pleased to be able to offer our subscribers two top games per week, with both English and Spanish commentary."
Last week, Mediapro Canada acquired rights to the Chinese Super League and CFA Cup, China's knockout clubs competition.
They were the first foreign competitions added to OneSoccer since its launch in April to coincide with the new Canadian Premier League, for which Mediapro Canada holds exclusive global rights in a 10-year deal.
OneSoccer subscribers will be able to watch the minimum 38 Liga MX games in 2019 at no extra charge. Its League Pass, which also comprises the Chinese properties, all CPL games and home games of the Canada men's and women’s national teams, costs C$74.99 ($57.38) per year.
More leagues are expected to be added throughout the remainder of 2019.
