The Spanish league, which had already announced a domestic television deal worth a minimum 2.65 billion euros ($2.8 billion, £1.86 billion), struck another agreement Thursday for 300 million euros.

Orange-Vodafone agreed the fee for one of the remaining packages available for the next three years, the league announced.

In Wednesday’s deal, it was revealed that a subsidiary of telecommunications giant Telefonica, Movistar, will have first choice of one match from each round of fixtures for 250 million euros a season.

Meanwhile, multimedia communications group Mediapro have the rights to eight other La Liga games each weekend for 633 million euros a season.

The figures are well short of the £5.1 billion three-deal agreed by the Premier League for domestic TV rights in February. – Agence France-Presse
