Fanatiz and MP & Silva finalized an agreement that will see Fanatiz live stream all Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana games in the US and Canada.
In the United States, Fanatiz, will live stream all matches from both the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana. A total of 40 Copa Libertadores matches and 30 Copa Sudamericana matches will be exclusive to Fanatiz. In Canada, Fanatiz will be the exclusive live broadcaster of all games from both tournaments. The deal makes Fanatiz the only broadcaster offering all games from these tournaments live in the U.S. and Canada. MP & Silva acquired the OTT rights from Fox.
“At Fanatiz our mission is to connect global fans with Latin America’s best soccer through our legal, high-quality and reliable service. We’re very excited to announce this rights acquisition deal that will bring the best South American club soccer to US and Canadian audiences,” Matias Rivera, CEO of Fanatiz, says.
“MP & Silva is excited to have finalized this deal helping expand the reach of these two prestigious tournaments,” Frank Uddo, President of MP & Silva, North America, says.
The Copa Libertadores will begin with qualifying rounds from late January all through February, followed by the group stage from Feb. 27-May 24. The top two teams in each group will move on to compete in the knockout stage which will have its final game on Nov. 28, where one team will be crowned king of South American soccer. In parallel, the Copa Sudamericana will begin on Feb. 13 where all teams will battle to determine who will be champion of “the other half of the glory” on Dec. 12.
