    Could be. I think that Fox only will have the French & Dutch leagues under contract next season just having lost the EPL to NBC.

    Hmm.. does it mean that ESPN (Deportes) lost their rights to Dutch footy? This season ESPND has been doing a great job broadcasting on weekly basis, even sometimes 2-3 matches. The only knock is they are not in high definition.

    FSC already lost the French league. Ligue 1 in 2012-2013 in the USA is on BeIN Sport in English and Univision Deportes in Spanish.

    Yes, unless they are willing to pay a fee to Fox to continue covering.

    IIRC, Fox paid a shitload for the right to broadcast Eredivisie.

    €11 million per year more than Eredivisie live if I recall correctly. Which isn't that much devided by 18 Eredivisie teams.

    From their website:
    "AMSTERDAM (AP)
    The Dutch competition watchdog has cleared Fox's takeover of the company that controls the broadcasting rights for the Eredivisie.

    The Netherlands Competition Authority says on Friday it has approved Fox International Channels' bid to take a 51 percent stake in Eredivisie Media and Marketing, which exploits the football broadcasting rights for topflight clubs.

    Competition authority board member Henk Don says the deal guarantees a payment of ?80 million a year to clubs in the Eredivisie through 2025."

    Not sure how good this is for the long term, but for now it looks like it'll bring in a pretty penny.

    I really enjoy Eredivisie football on ESPNDeportes. IF they switch to Fox, though, I'd like to see more matches that feature the "less fashionable" teams. We'll see how this all shakes out.

    Well for a while when ESPN Deportes showed game, games shown would be mainly PSV's (Francisco Rodríguez) and AZ's (Héctor Moreno): catered to the Mexican community.

    They primarily show PSV, Ajax, Feyenoord & Twente matches, now - which is great.

    Yea, I quite enjoy that: the more European footy, the merrier (I am). :D

    Does the KNVB Cup get any coverage? I'd like to see that.
