Welsh public-service television channel S4C has acquired rights for highlights coverage of the Spanish Liga, the top division of football in the country.

S4C will broadcast weekly highlights of the Liga alongside highlights of the Welsh top-tier Premier League as part of the Sgorio programme on Mondays at 18.05pm.

Liga highlights will also feature in the Welsh-language channel’s new Sunday sports programme, Clwb.

S4C’s director of content, Dafydd Rhys, said that there is “huge interest” in the Liga due to Wales national team star Gareth Bale entering his second season at Real Madrid.
