Is La Liga on UK TV this season?


Home to some of the most attacking teams in Europe, the Spanish t0p-flight never fails to entertain but fans in the UK were worried they'd be unable to watch this season after Eleven Sports lost the rights .


Fans could struggle to watch the two El Clasico matches between Real Madrid and Barcelona this season with no TV rights handed out in the UKCredit: AFP OR LICENSORS ITV have stepped in at the last minute and La Liga will be shown on UK screens this summer.


The first match of the season sees Barcelona travel to face Athletic Bilbao on Friday, August 16 and the game will be live on ITV4.


The ongoing issue over the scheduling of matches, many interested parties would have been put off or unwilling to offer big as even fans and clubs still do not have a fixed fixture list.


Founded by Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani, it also took over the television allocation for Eredivisie in Holland and Italy's Serie A in what was supposed to be a new age for football on the big screen.


This saw other television channels like Premier Sports and ITV take rights for Serie A and La Liga from them during the season, with the contract voided at the end of the campaign.
