LiveScore to show LaLiga SmartBank for free in UK and Ireland
LaLiga SmartBank can now be seen for free in the UK and Ireland via the LiveScore app.
For the remainder of the regular season, at least three specially selected LaLiga SmartBank matches per round will be exclusively streamed through LiveScore, which already has over 2 million users in the UK and Ireland.
The new agreement allows LiveScore app users to get closer to Spanish clubs including Real Zaragoza, Málaga, Girona and Espanyol de Barcelona directly from their iOS and Android mobile devices. LaLiga SmartBank also hosts some of the country’s top rivalries such as the Asturian derby between Real Oviedo and Sporting Gijón, as well as Spain’s island teams Las Palmas, Real Mallorca and Tenerife.
Ric Leask, marketing director at LiveScore, commented: “We are thrilled to be once again expanding our free-to-air live streaming service, this time bringing the passion and quality of Spanish football through the addition of LaLiga SmartBank. This is an exciting time for UK and Ireland football fans to follow the action as a number of household name teams battle it out for promotion back to LaLiga Santander.
“As a global sponsor of LaLiga Santander, at LiveScore we already recognise the appeal and interest in Spanish football for our users, and we can’t wait to start bringing the very best of LaLiga SmartBank to these shores between now and June.”
Melcior Soler, director of LaLiga’s audiovisual department, added: “This agreement provides a new and immersive way for fans to discover LaLiga SmartBank through an app that has become synonymous with live sport in the UK and Ireland. Digital platforms can help broaden the reach of our competitions and build lasting connections with the user. We are confident that LiveScore provides a viewing experience that people will want to repeat.”
