The SPFL have struck a major deal with CBS Sports to show live Scottish football in the US.

The American broadcaster signed a four-year agreement with the governing body to provide footage of live action to their fanbase in the states.

The deal, as confirmed this evening by the SPFL, will run until 2024/5 season with select matches from the top flight, Championship and Premier Sports Cup to be shown.

It begins on July 31 for the start of the new campaign. 85 matches will be shown throughout the deal.

"We are looking forward to presenting the action from the Scottish Professional Football League, highlighted by the iconic Old Firm rivalry,” said Dan Weinberg, Executive Vice President, Programming, CBS Sports. “The SPFL is an elite soccer league and a key addition in our growing portfolio of global soccer rights, and we are excited to capitalise on our digital and cable platforms to bring these matches to fans across Paramount+ and CBS Sports Network.”

“This deal with CBS Sports will ensure that even more football fans across the world will have access to our competitions,” added 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.

It comes as ESPN, the former carrier of Scottish football overseas, revealed to a follower on social media that they no longer owned rights.

CBS Sports Network with Paramount+ will show games with the latter becoming available for £4.99 per month.

All 42 SPFL clubs do already have their own streaming services for fans outside the UK and abroad.
