The 2017 Chinese Super League will be broadcasted by Fox in Italy. Starting from March 4th, 2017, Fox Sports will broadcast two HD matches every weekend at 8.30am and 12.30pm (CET), and the highlights of the other matches as well.
The Chinese Super League is well known due to huge investments that disrupted football worldwide. From now on, this league will be live in Italy as well thanks to Fox Sports.
The same media company also acquired the TV rights to the Spanish La Liga, the German Bundesliga, The Dutch Eredivise, the British FA cup and League cup, and the next African cup. Thanks to the acquisition of the TV rights to the Chinese Super League, Fox Sports will bring the audience to discover a new reality in the football panorama.
The Ghuanzou Evergrande wisely trained by Felipe Scolari is the top club in the Chinese Super League, however, we should pay attention to the performance of Fabio Cannavaro’s team Tianjin Quanjian. In addition, football lovers can admire top players such as Lavezzi, Tevez, Gervinho, Pellè, Hulk, Witzel, and Oscar again.
In a recent interview, Marco Foroni, the director of Fox Sports stated:
“China is the new super-power of football. Some important footballers chose to play in this league that disrupted the balance of the worldwide transfer market. The Chinese Super League is a tournament that is sharply increasing its technical level and for this reason we decided to discover it together. This exclusive acquisition of the TV rights (the on demand rights for mobile and the web are included) allows Fox Sports to improve SKY’s sports package with a unique offer of football in the world panorama.”
The first match broadcasted by Fox Sports will be played on March 4th, 2017 at 8.30am (CET) between Guangzou R&F Football Club and Quanjian Football (the team trained by Fabio Cannavaro). On March 5th, 2017 at 12.30pm (CET) Fox Sports Plus will broadcast Shanghai Greenland Shenhua Football Club (Tevez’s team) against Jiangsu Suning Football (Alex Texeira’s team).
