The partnership gives Dial Global exclusive terrestrial, three-season football coverage of Barclays Premier League, FA Cup and Capital One Cup games including play-by-play commentary of nearly 400 soccer matches per year, in both English and Spanish languages, on a soon-to-be-announced digital platform.

Weekend morning Barclays Premier League games of the week throughout the season for domestic radio stations are also provided.

“In just the past year, since becoming the Global Audio Partner for the Premier League, we have witnessed a groundswell of demand for live soccer commentary around the world,” said Scott Taunton, Chief Executive, talkSPORT. “We are thrilled to be working with Dial Global who is just as passionate and committed as we are about delivering the best and most exciting soccer coverage to the ever increasing number of fans in the U.S. market.”
