Optus Sports Gains Rights To Copa America For 2021 And 2024

In the latest broadcast coup for Optus Sport, the streaming platform has secured rights to the premier South American football championship, the Copa America.

The announcement means Optus Sport will exclusively broadcast 79 competitive international games across 32 days, with the upcoming EURO 2020 tournament also being streamed on the channel.

Optus head of television and content, Corin Dimopoulos, said the Optus is undoubtedly becoming the home of premium football in Australia.

“Optus Sport is well and truly focused on securing the best football tournaments and leagues, whilst continuing our world-class coverage across our stable of top-notch football,” Dimopoulos said.

“From Lionel Messi and Neymar in the Copa America 2021, to Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane in the upcoming Euro 2020, what was already a big year for Optus Sport has now become a whole lot bigger.

“We pride ourselves on delivering world-class football to our fans, and to now be able to add this to our suite of rights will hopefully be a dream come true for our Optus Sport customers.

“The months of June and July will be the closest thing you can experience to a World Cup with a celebration of non-stop football,” he said.

Optus originally had the Australian media rights to the Copa America when the Socceroos were invited to play at the tournament last year before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, with this new long-term agreement meaning customers can watch every team for both the 2021 and 2024 tournament.

Optus currently hold English Premier League (EPL) rights in Australia, but recently lost the UEFA Champions League rights.
