ITV have announced they will broadcast La Liga games every week this season

Great news for footy fans.

Starting this weekend with a season-opener between Athletic Club and FC Barcelona to be shown free-to-air on ITV4 at 8pm on Friday 15 August.

ITV have announced a continuation of their broadcast partnership with La Liga in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. The deal will see ITV broadcast weekly coverage of the Spanish top flight.

Weekly highlights of all the LaLiga Santander action will also be shown on both ITV and ITV4 following each Matchday.

According to news released on ITV's website, "a game from each of the first three Matchdays of the new LaLiga season will be shown live, featuring all the passion and colour of Spanish professional football."

Two other confirmed fixtures that will be shown on ITV includes Barcelona vs Real Betis on Saturday 25 August, and Villareal and Real Madrid on Sunday 1 September.

So you get to watch Messi regularly for no extra cost, as well as players like Eden Hazard and Antoine Griezmann.

A genuine honour.

Hats off to ITV!
