Today, fuboTV announced that the sports-first live TV streaming platform will be the exclusive home of the Premier League in Canada for the next 3 seasons beginning with the 2022-2023 season.
The announcement did not disclose the terms of the deal, but the platform will carry all 380 matches from England’s top soccer league in Canada, until the end of the 2024-25 season.
“The Premier League is considered to be the best soccer league in the world and has a huge fan base in Canada,” said David Gandler, co-founder and CEO, fuboTV. “This deal allows us to bring yet another top-notch property to fuboTV, further differentiating our content offering, and giving Canadians another reason to cut the cord for exciting, exclusive sports content.”
