Bell Media sports networks TSN and RDS announced today they have become Canada’s new English and French language home of LaLiga. As recently announced by ESPN, TSN and RDS deliver live coverage of LaLiga beginning this August, with coverage and highlights also available on TSN’s SPORTSCENTRE and RDS’s SPORTS 30, as well as on the networks’ respective digital and social media platforms.
LALIGA SANTANDER, the top division in Spanish soccer, is one of the world’s marquee sports leagues, featuring 20 clubs, including perennial global powers FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atlético de Madrid, Sevilla FC, and more.
“With many of the most famous teams and biggest stars in the beautiful game, LaLiga is a tremendous addition to our live sports schedule,” said Nathalie Cook, VP, TSN & RDS. “We’re very excited to deliver comprehensive coverage of LaLiga to Canada’s passionate soccer fan base in both English and French.”
“As we continue to grow the LaLiga brand and soccer overall throughout North America, offering English and French speakers easy access to the league across Canada via TSN and RDS is a huge opportunity,” said Boris Gartner, LaLiga North America CEO. “We couldn’t be happier with our latest media rights deals as we build momentum ahead of the 2026 FIFA World Cup hosted by Canada, Mexico, and the United States.”
Expanding LaLiga’s media rights, particularly in North America, is part of the league’s commitment to international markets. In 2018, LaLiga and Relevent Sports Group created a first-of-its-kind joint venture to support the league’s growth in the region through consumer-related activities including content development, events and activations, marketing agreements, development of youth players and coaches.
LaLiga joins Bell Media’s industry-leading slate of soccer programming, which also includes FIFA WORLD CUP ™, UEFA EURO, MLS ON TSN, and COPA AMERICA.
