Telefónica has signed an agreement with LaLiga for the domestic pay-TV rights to Spanish club football for the 2015-16 season, it emerged on Friday.

The Spanish broadband and telecoms provider has penned a reported €600 million deal that will grant it exclusive rights to nine games per round of the Spanish premier division as well as exclusive rights to games and highlights from the Segunda Division.

The Spanish Football League, now operating under the newly appointed LaLiga brand name, has also moved to reorganise the tender process for the domestic media rights to club football from the 2016-17 season. A new tender process is expected to be launched before the end of the year, with LaLiga issuing a statement to such effect indicating a possible deference to October or November.
