UEFA announced today the award of all media rights for the 2012–15 UEFA Europa League in the United States and Caribbean to FOX Sports. The rights awarded to FOX Sports in the Caribbean are non-exclusive.

FOX Soccer Channel will broadcast at least two live UEFA Europa League matches (one per kick-off slot) as well as one highlights programme and one delayed game each matchweek. In addition FOX Soccer Plus will show one live match for every kick-off slot up to the quarter-finals.

It will also be possible to follow the competition over the internet, on FOXsoccer.com, FOXsoccer.tv and FOXsports.com, and via mobile.

Commenting on the award of these rights in the region, UEFA said: "UEFA is delighted to announce the award of UEFA Europa League rights to FOX Sports. FOX Sports' strong coverage commitment to the UEFA Europa League will help to further grow the profile and recognition of the competition in the territory."

This announcement concludes the award of media rights in the region, after FOX Sports was also assigned the 2012–15 UEFA Champions League media rights. UEFA would like to take this opportunity to thank current rights holder DirecTV for its valued and continued commitment to the UEFA Europa League.
