CBS Sports, Paramount+ and Infront are proud to announce the acquisition of the cinch Premiership and cinch Championship -- the top two levels of Scottish soccer -- as well as the Premier Sports Cup on a multiyear agreement until 2024-25. From July 31, there will be at least 85 matches annually aired across Paramount+ and CBS Sports with Rangers' clash with Livingston and Celtic's trip to Heart of Midlothian getting things underway.
"This deal with CBS Sports will ensure that even more football fans across the world will have access to our competitions," said Neil Doncaster, SPFL chief executive. "This is great news for Scottish football and a strong indication of the continuing appeal that our game holds on the global stage.
As part of a multi-platform deal, there will be a weekly highlight show from across the league and every Old Firm match between Rangers and Celtic -- the first meeting between the two giants will occur on Sunday, Aug. 29 on CBS Sports Network.
