MEDIAPRO, the media partner of Canadian Soccer Business and the Canadian Premier League, is set to launch OneSoccer, a 24/7 LIVE and on-demand streaming channel that will become the new home of Canadian soccer.
OneSoccer will carry live coverage of all 98 Canadian Premier League matches (plus the final), including the much-anticipated opening game on April 27th between Forge FC and York9 FC at Hamilton’s Tim Hortons Field. It will also show all home matches of the Canada Soccer’s Women’s and Men’s National Teams and all 24 matches of the 2019 Canadian Championship involving all professional soccer teams in Canada, with a selection of key matches to be simulcast on a national linear broadcaster. From 2020, OneSoccer will also air a selection of League1 Ontario women’s and men’s games.
OneSoccer will also air a wide range of complementary programming, from pre- and postmatch highlights, daily news programs, mid-week magazine shows, interviews, features and other formats, expanding the channel’s offering to cable and satellite television platforms in the near future. Further information on the OneSoccer brand and its features is available on onesoccer.ca
OneSoccer will soon be available on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube, where news, photos, interviews, exclusive content, game-day clips and other content will be posted continually, to keep fans in constant touch with the league and their clubs, and to bring the players, coaches and home cities closer to fans new and old.
Further details regarding the live coverage of a selection of CPL and Championship games on a national broadcaster will be in the coming days.
I don’t know the numbers either but DAZN buying EPL rights for 3 years for one country is not the same as mediaPro buying the global rights for CPL/CMNT/WMNT for a decade...
What would be the global rights for epl for a decade? In the many billions.
It wouldn't recoup it alone but I'm not sure how you could honestly charge much more than that for a service just to watch CPL...especially given it's only about 3 games a week...
I suspect mediaPRO will probably make more on selling international rights than they will direct to consumers in Canada anyway.
