Mediapro seals rights to top Spanish women’s football league

The Mediapro agency has extended a rights deal for the Primera División de la Liga de Fútbol Femenino, the top division of women’s football in Spain.

The renewal will cover three seasons, from 2019-20 to 2021-22.

Mediapro, which has had rights to the league since 2013, struck the deal with the ACFF, the Association of Women’s Football Clubs in the country.

The deal is worth a total of about €9m ($10.1m) over the three seasons, according to ACFF president Rubén Alcaine, who added that the agreement is “historic” for the transformation of women’s football in Spain.

Mediapro’s free-to-air channel, Gol, has shown coverage of the league in previous seasons, alongside the men’s second-tier Segunda División and the Copa del Rey knockout tournament. Gol also offers some coverage of the top tier of men’s football, alongside the BeIN LaLiga and BeIN Sports channels.
