The American sports streaming platform, FuboTV has completed a massive deal in which it gained exclusive broadcasting rights for the Premier League (EPL) in Canada. Starting in the 2022/2023 season, Canadians will be able to watch every Premier League match for the next three seasons.
The EPL is Among the Most Prestigious Soccer Competitions in the World
This marks a huge milestone for FuboTV as the EPL is arguably the most prestigious and most popular soccer league in the world. To make things even better, the company recently stated that the preliminary Q4 results had exceeded its expectations as the revenue is likely to be higher than the one that was originally projected.

FuboTV Solidifies Its Spot as Top Soccer Streaming Platform in Canada
A few months before acquiring the rights to the EPL, FuboTV gained exclusive rights to another top-tier soccer competition – the Italian Serie A and Coppa Italia. Not only that, but the company holds exclusive streaming rights to all of Club Deportivo Guadalajara’s Liga MX home matches.
These recent achievements solidified the company’s spot as the top soccer streaming platform in the country as it already streams popular sports and entertainment channels such as beIN Sports and One Soccer. They feature coverage of Canadian National Men’s Soccer, Ligue 1, and the Canadian Premier League.
