ARY Digital Network acquires TV and Digital Rights for La Liga

KARACHI: ARY Digital Network has once again announced an exciting update for sports lovers in Pakistan as it has exclusively acquired TV and digital rights for La Liga 2022-23 and 2023-24.

After successfully acquiring the rights to the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022, ARY Digital Network has now successfully secured the rights to the next two La Liga seasons. Viewers in Pakistan can watch the event live on A Sports or stream it through the ARY ZAP application.

Administered by the Liga Nacional de Fútbol Profesional, it is contested by 20 teams, with the three lowest-placed teams at the end of each season being relegated to the Segunda División and replaced by the top two teams and a play-off winner in that division.

La Liga has been the top league in Europe in each of the seven years from 2013 to 2019 (calculated using accumulated figures from five preceding seasons) and has led Europe for 22 of the 60 ranked years up to 2019, more than any other country.

La Liga Season 2022-23 will commence on August 13.

Earlier in June, President and CEO ARY Digital Network Mr Salman Iqbal had given another big news for soccer lovers in the country as he announced the acquisition of TV and digital rights for FIFA World Cup 2022.

Soccer lovers in Pakistan will be able to watch the FIFA World Cup live on A-Sports and can stream it through the ARY ZAP application as it kicks off in November.

The Spanish league will embark with the home side Osasuna taking on Sevilla in the curtain raiser at El Sadar Stadium on August 13. Whereas, Real Madrid will be competing in the event to defend their title.

A-Sports has previously aired ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, PSL Season 2022 and Karachi Open Squash Championship among other major sports events.

Pakistan’s first HD Sports channel also airs the ongoing Formula 1 Grand Prix Season 2022-23.
