TSN has signed an agreement to become Canada’s official home of the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup and the 2018 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League. The news was announced on Tuesday with the network’s vice president, Shawn Redmond, explaining the exclusivity of the deal as follows:
"The addition of these CONCACAF competitions allows us to further augment TSN’s expansive slate of live soccer for our viewers, while also delivering the performances by our Canadian teams throughout both the Gold Cup and the Champions League."
Soccer in Canada keeps growing, 17 years after the country’s national team stunned the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football by clinching the Gold Cup at the expense of the disillusioned Colombians.
"We have seen some great performances over the years from Canada at the GOLD CUP, and from Canadian teams in the Champions League," declared CONCACAF president Victor Montagliani.
"So we’re pleased that TSN will be bringing all the action to the growing Canadian audience for years to come."
Subscribers of TSN can stream matches of both competitions on the website (TSN.ca) and the TSN GO mobile app. Live Soccer TV will update broadcast data as new announcements are made.
