Paraguay-based pay-television broadcaster Tigo Sports has acquired the rights to Costa Rica’s Concacaf Nations League matches.
The rights are for broadcast outside of Costa Rica. They are also non-exclusive given Costa Rican commercial broadcasters Repretel and Teletica Canal hold rights to broadcast the national team matches both domestically and regionally, reports nacion.com.
Tigo Sports director Kristian Mora said: “We have always intended to broadcast our national team matches. It is a priority for us, but due to a rights issue we could not. Now it is possible to broadcast football matches played outside Costa Rica, a first step we achieved when we are celebrating one year operating in the country.”
Agency Lagardère Sports acquired the international distribution rights to a range of Concacaf events in 2017.
Tigo Sports launched in Costa Rica last year and broadcasts in five other Central and South American nations, namely Bolivia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Paraguay.
