YouTube to air Spain's LaLiga 123 for free - report

Thursday 10 January 2019 | 15:48 CET | News
Spain's football league (La Liga) is preparing to broadcast live matches from the second-tier Liga 123 outside of Spain for free on YouTube for the remainder of the 2018-19 season, reports website Palco23. A total of 11 games and a highlights package will be streamed every match day in English via LaLiga's YouTube channel and will be geolocated to prevent Spanish consumers from accessing the content. The aim is to achieve greater international exposure for the division after LaLiga failed to sell rights to games in most countries, said the report.
