SKY SPORTS WINS RIGHT TO BROADCAST MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER

SKY SPORTS WINS RIGHT TO BROADCAST MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER

Sky sports will exclusively broadcast all the live Major League Soccer (MLS) matches this is after the British owned company won the rights.

This is seen by many as one of Sky’s ways of ensuring that it strengthens is position as the home of sports given that this deal with MLS comes just days after it came to an agreement with the Premier League allowing it to show more live matches. The four year deal with MLS which is set to begin in match, is expected to bring in a wider range of coverage to its viewers.

With Steven Gerrad (England captain) and Frank Lampard set to join LA Galaxy in July and New York City this summer respectively, fans will be able to keep up with their football legend by tuning in to MLS on Sky Sports.

In 2014 Sky Sports secured 25 agreements secured and it seems the company is continuing where it left off by securing deals that will see them air domestic and international cricket matches with the ECB, exclusive live matches of the Premiere League in 2016 and open championship coverage from 2017.

MLS has seen an increase in the number of quality players who are opting to play in the league for instance Thiery henry and David Beckham, who are both Sky ambassador, played in MLS for several seasons, Robbie Keane is also one of the many high profile football players who are currently playing in the MLS.
