The big news of the day was BeIN Sport announcing that it bought the TV rights to all the US road World Cup qualifiers (minus the potential game against Mexico at Azteca in the Hex) for the rest of this cycle. BeIN Sport is the new Al-Jazeera backed TV station which has been buying up all of GolTV’s old rights (i.e. La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1). This means no more PPV/closed circuit games for the US during qualification. BeIN Sport is already on DirecTV and Dish Network and hopefully should be picked up by cable providers in the future (I am looking at you Time Warner Cable). Steven Goff has all the details right here, plus some other information on the upcoming September camp.
