25 extra Scottish League Cup games to be streamed live

An extra 25 Scottish League Cup group-stage matches are to be streamed live in the coming season.

It means every game involving the seven Premiership sides will be available live either through Premier Sports on television or through its streaming service.

The extra streamed games form part of the new three-year agreement between the company and the Scottish Professional Football League.

They are in addition to the previously announced five live TV broadcasts from the group stage of what is now promoted as the Premier Sports Cup.

Premier Sports will also broadcast all games live from the second round onwards, either streamed or televised, subject to Saturday 15:00 GMT blackout rules.

Having acquiring the rights to 20 Premiership games and extended its Scottish Cup rights, Premier Sports will now be broadcasting more than 75 games across the three competitions.
