FOX Soccer, America’s premier soccer destination, today announced the renewal of exclusive media rights for Australasia’s topflight soccer league, the Hyundai A-League in an agreement brokered by World Sport Group.

The rights include coverage of 31 exclusive regular season and Finals Series matches on FOX Soccer and FOX Soccer Plus, the brand’s 24/7 premium subscription network, through the 2015 season. In addition to live and delayed match coverage, the renewal includes Hyundai A-League Highlights, a weekly 30-minute show discussing results, storylines and memorable events from weekly matches.

“We are very excited to renew the Hyundai A-League for three more seasons,” said Joshua Glassel, Vice President of Programming and Acquisitions for FOX Soccer. “FOX Soccer viewers are fans of the global game, and this renewal ensures continued coverage of one of the sport’s fastest developing leagues and talent pools.”

“The Hyundai A-League has produced the highest technical standard of play this season, delivered first-class live TV entertainment and fantastic in-stadium atmosphere with average crowds above 10,000,” said CEO of Football Federation Australia, Ben Buckley.

“The extension of the FOX Soccer agreement shows the growing stature of a competition that’s on the move. We’re delighted that North American audiences can see the Hyundai A-League live and exclusively on a major channel.”
