GolTV scores Scottish Cup rights

US pay-television channel GolTV has signed a multi-year deal with the IMG agency to broadcast the Scottish Cup club football knockout competition.

GolTV will commence the partnership by showing this season’s semi-final matches when Hibernian faces Falkirk and Inverness Caledonian Thistle takes on Celtic on the weekend of April 18-19.

The final on May 30 is also set to feature on the bilingual network, with its 2015-16 Scottish Cup coverage set to commence from February 2016.
