Attention soccer fans:
If you want to watch more of your favorite sport, it will be paramount to get Paramount Plus.
CBS Sports said Thursday it has reached an agreement for exclusive U.S. English-language rights to Concacaf national team properties, confederation qualifiers for the 2023 Women’s World Cup, men’s Nations League and the women’s Nations League.
Paramount Plus, CBS’s streaming service will carry more than 200 national team matches live, including at least 80 Concacaf Women’s World Cup qualifiers and more than 100 Concacaf Women’s Nations League contests. Select matches will also be available to air on other CBS Sports platforms.
“We are excited to continue the expansion of CBS Sports’ soccer portfolio across both the men’s and women’s game, and look forward to delivering competitive Concacaf national team action on Paramount Plus and CBS Sports platforms,” CBS Sports digital EVP and general manager Jeffrey Gerttula said in a statement. “Paramount Plus has truly become a year-round soccer destination, attracting a growing fanbase that’s hungry to watch the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams along with a variety of international soccer competitions.”
The deal is the latest of soccer deals the streaming service has made recently.
In March, Paramount Plus said it acquired the rights to air almost 80 Concacaf men’s World Cup qualifiers for the 2022 event in Qatar and the U.S. rights to Serie A matches in Italy.
At the present time, Paramount Plus also televises the UEFA Champions League, Europa League, next year’s Europa Conference League, the National Women’s Soccer League and the top leagues in Brazil and Argentina.
Paramount will stream the Nations League finals in Denver in June 3 and 6.
“We are extremely pleased to begin this new partnership with CBS Sports which starts with our first ever Concacaf Nations League finals and includes our game changing new women’s national team competitions,” Concacaf general secretary Philippe Moggio said in a statement. “CBS Sports has an excellent track record of delivering outstanding live sports coverage, and their new Paramount Plus platform is increasingly popular with fans. We look forward to working together to elevate men’s and women’s national team football in the Concacaf region.”
