StarHub Secures Multi-Year La Liga Rights
Singapore – StarHub today announced that it has secured a multi-year agreement for the rights to broadcast the Spanish La Liga. Matches will be shown in high definition on StarHub TV and on StarHub Go.
‘Live’ coverage will kick off with the record 32-time league winners Real Madrid playing Real Sociedad on 30 December 2015, 11pm on SuperSports 2 (StarHub TV Channel 202). Matches will be broadcast on SuperSports 2 and StarHub’s free cable channel SuperSports Arena (StarHub TV Channel 112/205 and 76.25MHz).
“Our broadcast of La Liga underlines our commitment to football fans in Singapore. We always take the feedback from our customers seriously and have been working hard to bring La Liga back to Singapore screens. Today, we are happy to say that Sports Group customers will be able to get front row seats to the footballing spectacle put up by world class players such as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar,” said Mr Howie Lau, Chief Marketing Officer of StarHub.
One of the strongest professional football leagues in the world, La Liga consists of 20 teams including defending champions Barcelona and Valencia, which is owned by Singaporean businessman Peter Lim. Littered with the biggest football stars (including the top five most expensive players in the world), La Liga clubs have dominated European competitions. In the last decade alone, a combined total of 11 UEFA Champions League (UCL) and UEFA Europa League (UEL)/UEFA Cup titles have been won by Spanish clubs. This season, La Liga is the only league in Europe with all its teams still competing in the knockout stages of continental competitions (Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in the UCL; Valencia, Sevilla, Villarreal and Athletic Bilbao in the UEL).
“I am delighted that StarHub will be providing coverage of both Valencia’s La Liga and Europa League matches. StarHub’s support ensures that our fans in Singapore will be able to closely follow the team’s progress on TV. The club is nothing without our fans so this gives all the players a big boost for the second half of the campaign,” said Valencia CF President, Ms Chan Lay Hoon.
Viewers need a Sports Group subscription to access SuperSports 2. In addition, Sports Group subscribers will be able to catch La Liga matches on their mobile devices. For more information, please visit www.starhub.com/sports-group.
