​TSN to continue coverage of Canadian domestic and international games

The Sports Network (TSN) has extended its partnership with Canada Soccer to show the national team's fixtures and the country's domestic championship, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.

Pay-TV TSN, the largest sports channel in Canada, will broadcast Fifa World Cup qualifying matches for both the men's and women's national teams, as well as friendly games in the run-up to this summer's Olympic Games in Rio.

The first international matches to be shown under the new deal will be the 'Road to Rio Women's International Series' fixtures between Canada and Brazil, set to be played on 4th and 7th June in Toronto and Ottawa respectively.

The channel will also air fixtures from the Amway Canadian Championship, the North American nation's professional domestic competition.

The knock-out tournament features Canada's three representatives in Major League Soccer (MLS) - Toronto FC, Montreal Impact and Vancouver Whitecaps - who are joined by the country's North American Soccer League (NASL) sides, Ottawa Fury and FC Edmonton. The two NASL sides will face each other in a play-off, with the winner going through to a semi-final against the Whitecaps.

"We are pleased to extend our partnership with TSN to bring Canadian soccer to the home of champions," said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer general secretary. "As a leading soccer nation, we are proud to have a partner that will bring our matches to Canadians from coast to coast to coast on television and digital platforms."
