Sky Sports will remain the home of La Liga coverage for another three seasons as part of a new deal announced on Wednesday (August 5th).

It is Sky's 20th year of working alongside Spain's top flight, adding to its offerings across seven channels.

The deal means customers will be able to follow the fortunes of Real Madrid and Barcelona in the mouth-watering El Clasico fixtures, along with a total of 100 live matches screened over the course of every season.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said: "The agreement means our viewers can enjoy the likes of Ronaldo, Messi, Bale and Neymar week in, week out throughout the football season."

Javier Tebas, President of La Liga, added that the league was happy to be continuing its work with the broadcaster.

"La Liga has a huge global fan base and by renewing with Sky Sports, the agreement provides us with the best possible way to showcase our league, our teams and our players to our UK and Irish audience."

Other high-profile matches on offer include the final of the Copa del Rey, which last season was clinched by Barcelona.

It is the latest boost for Sky, which has now secured 36 new rights agreements over the last 18 months.

As well as an increased number of games from the Barclays Premier League, subscribers can also watch The Open golf from 2017, as well as live international and domestic cricket.
