Italian football returns on ESPN

ESPN has renewed its agreement to broadcast live and exclusive coverage from Italy's Serie A in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland.

The American sports network will begin its coverage of over 80 live games during the 2010-11 season when the new campaign kicks on the weekend of August 27 and 28, covering at least two games live each week.

All matches will be shown live and exclusive on the ESPN channel, with the majority also available in stunning high definition (HD) picture quality on the ESPN HD channel.

As well as delayed coverage of other matches in ESPN's late night, weekend and midweek output, there will also be a preview show; Total Italian Football, to offer a look towards the weekend's action; and a highlights programme; ESPN Kicks - Serie A, to compliment the live coverage.

The Coppa Italia also returns to ESPN for a second consecutive season, with live matches set to be broadcast throughout the latter stage of the competition.

"The renewal of this agreement is an excellent result for all football fans in the UK, giving them access to live and exclusive coverage of one of the world’s most talked about leagues," vice-President of ESPN Europe Jeroen Oerlemans said. "We are building an excellent portfolio of live football and sport on ESPN."

A world-renowned Disney-owned company, ESPN will also be covering live action from the English Premier League, FA Cup, Scottish Premier League, German Bundesliga and Cup, Dutch Eredivisie, Russian Premier League, UEFA Europa League, American Major League Soccer and International friendlies and UEFA Euro 2012 qualifiers this season, amongst other major European and international sporting events.
