TSN2 has come to terms on a multi-year agreement that will give the network Canadian broadcast rights to exclusive Barclays Premier League (BPL) matches over the next three seasons.
The announcement is the latest high profile acquisition for TSN2. Last week, the network announced the addition of Major League Baseball's marquee Sunday Night Baseball.
"The Premier League has a large and dedicated following in Canada and with the popularity of international soccer continuing to grow across the country we are thrilled to bring Canadian fans some of the world's best soccer on TSN2," said Phil King, President of TSN.
Barclays Premier League is widely regarding as one of the top soccer leagues in the world and is also one of the most-watched. Made up of 20 member clubs, the English-based league includes some of the most popular teams in the world of soccer such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and more.
Beginning in August, TSN2 will feature live BPL matches over the next three years.
The agreement includes Saturday games featuring some of the Premier League's most popular teams (airing in the morning in Eastern Time) along with weeknight matches (airing in the afternoon in Eastern Time). Details on TSN2's Barclays Premier League broadcast schedule will be confirmed in August.
