beIN MEDIA GROUP, the global sports and entertainment broadcaster and its flagship sports channel beIN SPORTS, has secured the exclusive broadcast rights to this year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup 2021, in 24 countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), France, Turkey and APAC*.
The CONCACAF Gold Cup is the main association football competition of the national football teams which determines the continental champion of North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Held every two years, Mexico holds the record with 11 wins in total, followed by USA with 6.
Taking place across 9 cities in the United States of America (USA), the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup kicked off this Sunday 11 July and will go on until Sunday 1 August with back-to-back games on beIN SPORTS’ Premium 1 channel for Arabic coverage and beIN SPORTS 1 for English coverage.
This year’s edition will see the Qatar national team take part in the tournament for the very first time as a guest nation– playing against the likes of Honduras, Panama and Grenada in group D.
