Manchester United Football Club, the 18-time champions of the English Premier League, and Sirius XM Radio announced today a multi-year agreement to make Sirius XM the official U.S. radio broadcaster of the famed football club.
The deal means Sirius and XM subscribers will have access to live play-by-play of every Manchester United match and will hear the official Manchester United club broadcast. All games will air on Sirius channels 125 and 113 and XM channels 241 and 244.
The agreement also gives Sirius XM the rights to stream matches online and via their smartphone applications.
"Manchester United is one of the most famous and widely followed sports franchises in all of the world and we're thrilled to offer our listeners access to every one of their Premier League matches," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer.
In addition to play-by-play coverage, Man U fans can also hear comprehensive soccer talk on SiriusXM's The Football Show, the daily talk program hosted by Giorgio Chinaglia and soccer expert Charlie Stillitano.
