Italy’s Serie A has become the latest major European soccer league to agree a content partnership with Minute Media, the digital media brand owner, to boost its presence in North America.

The tie-up will aim to increase Serie A viewership and digital engagement across the media company’s portfolio of sports content brands in the region.

Minute Media’s global soccer network 90min will add a Serie A-specific vertical to its site, capturing pre-match content, with information on where to watch the games for US audiences and tune-in information for broadcast.

90min will also produce ranking tables about Serie A, focusing on US, Canadian, and Latin players to cater to the North American audience.

As an official content partner, Minute Media will utilize licensee content for use on its properties. This includes highlights of regular season matches and Serie A US events including training, press conferences, and watch parties. 

Serie A this season features several US national team players including AC Milan’s Christian Pulisic and Yunus Musah and Juventus' Weston McKennie and Timothy Weah.
