The Argentine press claims the social media network fronted by Mark Zuckerberg will air at least 26 Libertadores 2019 matches for free and exclusively on the Facebook Watch platform. 

Facebook's bet on sport broadcasts continues to grow in Latin America with the acquisition of the biggest continental tournament of clubs: the Libertadores Cup.

That, at least, is what the Argentine press has claimed on Friday. Although it hasn't been officially confirmed reports say that the broadcasting rights for the Libertadores Cup have been won by FOX Sports Latin America and Facebook.

According to the terms, FOX Sports Latin America will air 80% of the matches: matches on Tuesdays and the groups phase on Wednesdays, together with the entire Cup from single-elimination portion of the tournament.

The groups phase matches on Thursday, a total of 26 games, will air for free and exclusively on Facebook.

According to sports journal Olé, as part of the deal all teams will have to play on Thursdays at least once. Thus, Facebook guarantees airing matches with the main regional teams like Boca, Flamengo and Nacional.

And according to La Nación, all broadcasts will be fronted by TNT Sports journalists.

Facebook's acquisition comes after the acquisition of the acquisition of the UEFA tournament for Latin America and rights from LaLiga in eight Asian countries, including India.

In the future, claims Olé, the Sudamericana could also be on Facebook's wish list after the first auction had no winners.
