football-walcottFox Sports has renewed its exclusive media rights in the US and Caribbean to the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League for three additional seasons from 2015-16 through 2017-18.

Fox Sports has been the English and Spanish language rights holder in the US and Caribbean for the Champions League since the 2009-10 season and Europa League since 2012-13. The new agreement with UEFA – the governing body of football in Europe – ensures comprehensive coverage of both tournaments on multiple channels and platforms including Fox Sports, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, Fox Deportes, Fox Sports Regional Networks and Fox Soccer Plus.

“We are elated to continue our partnership with UEFA and serve as home of its flagship properties through at least 2018,” said David Nathanson, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of Fox Sports. “The fact that all the leading European teams and players continue to be seen on one destination speaks to Fox Sports’ commitment to showcase the world’s best. No other sports television franchise has an elite international soccer schedule that even comes close.”

In total, Fox Sports plans to carry 146 UEFA Champions League games annually throughout the term of the agreement, and 205 Europa League matches.
