Tele Red Imagen extends deal for Argentine lower leagues – report

The Argentine Football Association has reportedly extended its broadcast rights deal with media company Tele Red Imagen for the Nacional B and Primera B Metropolitana club competitions.

The agreements for the second- and third-tier leagues were due to expire next year, but Argentine newspaper La Nacion said an extension has been reached amid a revamp of the second-tier Nacional B.

The agreement has reportedly been extended until 2025.

The new agreement is also said to include streaming rights, meaning that TyC Play will continue to carry matches.

In principle, pay-television broadcaster TyC Sports and DirecTV are set to carry six and two matches, respectively, per match week across the two leagues.

The next edition of the Nacional B is set to see the league’s 32 teams split into two zones of 16 clubs apiece.
