LAFC Announces Partnership with Youtube TV to Stream Soccer Matches
Reimagining the sports landscape with new streaming services offered.
The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) has announced a multi-year partnership with YouTube TV. The new cable-free live TV service, that launched back in April 2017, will serve as the “Official Live TV Partner” and “Official Video Partner” of LAFC, becoming the hub of all locally televised English-language LAFC matches.
The partnership is the first of its kind in North American professional sports where all locally televised matches are on a live television stream. YouTube TV will provide 30 of LAFC’s 34 English-language matches which will also carry all nationally televised matches on ESPN, FOX and FS1.
The deal features the YouTube TV logo proudly displayed on the LAFC jersey, an agreement which YouTube Director of Sports Partnerships for the Americas Tim Katz says is “reimagining the sports landscape in the same innovative way [they] strive to reimagine the live TV experience.”
Set to kick-off in 2018, LAFC is constructing and developing a 22-thousand seat Banc of California Stadium and a top-flight training center on the campus of Cal-State Los Angeles.
YouTube TV can be watched on any mobile phone, tablet or computer and features a cloud DVR which carries no storage space limits that travels with subscribers within the United States so you can stream recordings on any device. The membership is half the cost of cable providers at only $35 a month with zero commitments, which means users can cancel at any time they want.
