Free-to-air LaLiga games promised every Friday night.

FreeSports is introducing a weekly Fútbol Fridays show to broadcast regular free-to-air Friday night LaLiga fixtures.

For this next two weeks, it will also air Saturday’s 3pm LaLiga games (SD Eibar vs. RC Celta (Saturday 12 Sept); Villarreal CF vs. SD Eibar (Saturday 19 Sept)).

FreeSports is also planning LaLiga matchday previews each week.

Fútbol Fridays begins this week at 6pm BST with four hours of LaLiga. It will broadcast live via simulcast from the LaLigaTV studios.

It will show two hours of pre-match coverage followed by live coverage of the Friday 8pm game (which this week is Granada CF vs. Athletic Club).

Premier Sports CEO Richard Sweeney, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with LaLiga to bring Fútbol Fridays on FreeSports to viewers across the UK. We know there’s a strong appetite for free-to-air football in this country and we’re confident that fans will make Fútbol Fridays a consistent part of their weekend viewing habits.”

LaLiga president Javier Tebas, added: “We look forward to fans in Spain, the UK and elsewhere finally returning to stadiums once it is deemed safe to do so. For now, we are pleased to bring UK viewers the very best of Spanish football via our flagship 24/7 channel, LaLigaTV, and our broadcast partnership with Premier Sports. This includes during the traditional kick-off time of 3pm on Saturdays.”
