MyCujoo OTT adds NPSL to US football portfolio

Football streaming platform MyCujoo has acquired rights to the National Premier Soccer League, the fourth tier of the US game.

The deal runs until January 2021 and provides MyCujoo with exclusive digital rights to over 400 matches for the duration of the agreement.

The NPSL is the highest tier of semi-professional/amateur football in the US and features 91 clubs competing across 13 conferences in four separate regions.

MyCujoo signed a similar deal with the United Premier Soccer League last year and also holds agreements with the United Women’s Soccer league and the Women’s Premier Soccer League.

MyCujoo chief executive Pedro Presa said: “The fact that we now own rights across North America in both the women’s and the men’s game gives us the scale to really start making our community model work in North America.”

Earlier this month, MyCujoo acquired worldwide digital rights to a range of Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) properties, including the top two tiers of women’s football and the men’s fourth division.
