beIN SPORT Lands Rights to U.S. Men’s World Cup Qualifying Away Games
beIN SPORT, the new independent 24-hour global network dedicated to exclusive coverage of the world’s best international sports, announced it has secured exclusive rights to televise the away games for the U.S. men’s national soccer team in the qualifying rounds of the 2014 World Cup.
beIN SPORT kicks-off its coverage of the U.S. team’s quest for glory with two CONCACAF World Cup qualifying matches. The first live televised game will feature U.S. versus Jamaica on Sept. 7 from National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica. The U.S. team will then face off against Antigua & Barbuda Oct. 12 from Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua.
If the U.S. team advances to the next World Cup qualifying round, beIN SPORT will be there to televise the action starting February 2013.
In addition, beIN SPORT has secured exclusive rights to the home and away games of all the other national soccer teams participating in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying competition, except for Mexico.
“By securing these exclusive TV rights, beIN SPORT again shows why it’s the place for U.S. fans to be in the best soccer action in the world,” said Yousef Al Obaidly, managing director of beIN SPORT. “Fans can now cheer on the U.S. men’s team as they compete on the world stage, and they can see it only on beIN SPORT.”
Launched earlier this month, beIN SPORT offers exclusive coverage of the top soccer leagues in both Europe and South America, including Spain’s La Liga, Italy’s Serie A, France’s Ligue Un, South American World Cup Qualifiers and Copa America 2015, as well as many other world-class sporting events.
