FIFA extends Media Rights for FOX until 2026

FIFA has extended its media rights agreements in the United States and Canada for its tournaments up to and including the 2026 FIFA World Cup™.  According to FIFA:

  • FIFA Futsal World Cup 2024
  • FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup 2024 and 2026
  • FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2024 and 2026
  • FIFA Confederations Cup 2025.
