The Kings League became a popular seven-a-side soccer league on Twitch just a few months ago. It’s a project led by Gerard Piqué and includes streamers like Ibai Llanos and old glories from professional soccer. Now, Mediaset España has signed with Kosmos (Piqué’s company) the rights to broadcast Kings League Infojobs and the new Queens League Oysho.
Starting this week, Mediaset will broadcast the most attractive match of the day from both leagues, every week at 8:00 p.m. In addition, Mediaset will offer summaries of the day’s action and the best moments from pre and post-match programs, Chup Chup and After.
This exciting agreement was officially announced by Gerard Piqué on Mediaset. The first two matches that Cuatro will broadcast are the PIO FC-Aniquiladoras FC of the Queens League Oysho, this Saturday, May 6 at 8:00 p.m., and the Porcinos FC-xBuyer Team of the Kings League Infojobs, on Sunday, May 7 at 8:00 p.m.
“We believe that this union will help the Queens League Oysho and the Kings League InfoJobs to reach more and more audiences attracted by the interest in this new competition,” says Piqué. The unique show that has generated great expectations among all audiences mixes “emotion, spectacle and competition along with the participation of streamers and YouTubers.”
Mediaset clarifies some important details for the public watching these matches through Cuatro. There are “wildcards” that can double the value of your goals, just like Mario Strikers. If it ends in a tie, the match is resolved with a round of five penalties for each team in which a player faces the goalkeeper from midfield.
The match is exciting and has special guests, and in each game, the teams can invite one player on each day. Ronaldinho, Javier Saviola, Chicharito Hernández, and Kun Agüero have been some of those who have played in the first season.
