Gol to broadcast Women’s World Cup in Spain

Spanish agency Mediapro has confirmed that its commercial broadcaster, Gol, will exclusively broadcast the 2019 Fifa Women’s World Cup.

Gol will provide more than 150 hours of programming from the event, with Mediapro stating that the decision builds on a commitment that began in 2013 to deliver more television coverage of the women’s game.

Mediapro secured the rights to the tournament under a broader agreement signed with world football’s governing body in January.

Spain has been drawn against Germany, China and South Africa in the group stage of the tournament, which takes place in France from June 7 to July 7.

Mediapro extended a rights deal in March to the Primera División de la Liga de Fútbol Femenino, the top division of women’s football in Spain. The renewal covers three seasons, from 2019-20 to 2021-22.
