English Premier League to be shown on Fox Sports for next three seasons

The English Premier League will be shown on Fox Sports for the next three seasons after the network won the rights to the world’s most popular football league.

Fox will broadcast the EPL in Central and South America until the 2012-13 season after beginning its broadcast in 1998.

This season, Fox sublicensed its rights to ESPN2 to show close to 50 EPL matches in the United States.

Fox also holds the rights to the Italian Serie A and has also added the European Champions League to its schedule.

Invitations for Canadian and Caribbean rights bids will be sent out this Friday.
