ITV secures rights to air three La Liga live matches of new season in Ghana

ITV will broadcast three La Liga matches live on ITV4 at the start of the new season.

The broadcaster displayed live top-flight Spanish matches at the end of last season after previous rights holders Eleven Sports terminated their agreement.

ITV will also broadcast weekly La Liga highlights throughout the season on both ITV and ITV4.

Live coverage starts with Barcelona’s trip to Athletic Bilbao today.

Barcelona’s first home game against Real Betis on 25 August will also be broadcasted live, before Real Madrid’s trip to Villarreal is available on the following weekend (1 September).
