La Liga to return to English TV next month with all matches free

La Liga is making a spectacular return for English TV viewers – with all games being shown for free in June.

Lionel Messi and Co are set to draw in massive audiences after Spanish top-flight football was given the green light to return next month.

La Liga and its broadcast partner Premier Sports will announce this week that all live matches will be made available for Sky TV customers.

It follows the Bundesliga proving to be a big hit on BT Sport with football fans craving the return of live-action after the coronavirus lockdown.

La Liga games are set to be shown every day of the week with late afternoon and evening kick-offs as well as night matches at weekends.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are currently locked in a title race while La Liga president Javier Tebas has confirmed the Seville derby between Sevilla and Real Betis will be the first game back from the week of June 8. The opening fixture could be on Thursday, June 11.

It means Spanish football is likely to be back on English TV screens before the Premier League which is also due to return next month.

Sky subscribers – or anyone with a Skybox – will be able to sign up for free during June with the subscription price normally £5.99. Non-Sky subscribers are also to be offered free games in June via the Premier Player app.

It is designed to be part of a TV bonanza for armchair viewers with the hope they will stick with the channel with 11 games left for each team.

La Liga has also announced that a new magazine show featuring former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be on air from June 1.

Talking Football series will be hosted by Guillem Balagué who will interview Pochettino and there will be more regular programming around the games.
