Sportsnet Secures Multi Platform Rights for 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers
2012-04-30
Sportsnet continues its roll on the soccer pitch, with word it has secured the Canadian multimedia rights to more than 250 soccer matches, including qualifiers and friendlies, leading up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.

The new package features a comprehensive suite of digital media rights including television, online and mobile - headlined by all qualifier and friendly home matches for Germany, France, Italy, Spain and England from the Road to Rio.
It’s the third such major soccer rights acquisition recently secured by Sportsnet.
In the past month, the network also announced multiyear, digital media rights agreements for the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Champions League.
CBC/Radio-Canada will provide coverage of the 2014 FIFA Men's World Cup tournament itself, across all of its platforms.
The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) decided late last year to award Canadian broadcasting rights from 2015 through to 2022 to Bell Media.
“Sportsnet is committed to fueling fans with premium soccer content across multiple platforms,” said Navaid Mansuri, Vice-President of Finance & Sports Programming, Rogers Media. “We are thrilled to be leading Canadians down the exciting road to the 2014 FIFA World Cup for the next two years and providing soccer fans with access to matches featuring the world’s top ranked teams as they prepare for the most illustrious soccer event in the world.”
Sportsnet’s coverage leading up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup includes teams from Canada, Spain, Germany, France, Netherlands, Portugal, England, Croatia, Italy, Greece and the Czech Republic. Coverage kicks off on June 8 with Canada vs. Cuba.
