Eleven Sports lands Spanish Copa Del Rey final rights in five markets

International broadcaster Eleven Sports has secured exclusive live rights to the 2019 Spanish Copa del Rey final in Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal and Taiwan, it said Tuesday.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) had set a deadline of Monday May 13 for bids for European and international rights to the final.

It will take place on May 25 between Barcelona and Valencia at Seville’s Estadio Benito Villamarín.

Eleven Sports last week announced it had acquired exclusive rights to US Major League Soccer in Belgium and Luxembourg from 2019 to 2022.
