Sky Sports has won the exclusive rights to broadcast Major League Soccer live from the US for the first time.
The broadcaster has signed a four-year deal which begins this March.
Sky Sports Managing Director Barney Francis commented: “Football in the US and Canada has enormous potential for growth and we can’t wait to bring this competition to our viewers for the first time.
“Thierry Henry has joined us, he created fantastic memories in MLS, and we look forward to seeing more of those great stories from across the Atlantic.
“We offer an unrivalled range of sport across our seven channels and we are always looking to offer more choice. After recently adding football from Holland, Italy and UEFA European qualifiers, we are delighted to now add MLS to that list.”
Gary Stevenson, President and Managing Director, MLS Business Ventures, added: “As MLS continues to grow into a global brand, we are excited to partner with Sky Sports, a leader in the UK TV market, to bring the sport to millions of soccer fans.
“2015 is a milestone year for MLS including new stars, new clubs and a new brand. Sky Sports will help continue to grow the League and its Clubs worldwide.”
