Fanatiz continues enhancing its programming line-up by partnering with CentroAméricaTV, the leading network for Central Americans living in the United States and the exclusive U.S. television home of the national soccer leagues from El Salvador, Honduras and Costa Rica. As a result of this new partnership, the sports streaming platform is positioned to deliver the most comprehensive offering of Central American soccer to fans living in United States, Puerto Rico and Canada having already acquired Guatemala’s #1 sports channel, Tigo Sports, last year.

“At Fanatiz, we strive to provide our subscribers the best in sports content. With the addition of CentroAméricaTV to our roster of partners, we continue to enhance the streaming experience for soccer fans in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada,” said Matias Rivera, Fanatiz CEO & Founder. “We are thrilled to continue growing our portfolio of content – and by adding the leading network for Central American soccer fans living in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada, we continue to give our clients more of what they crave and are now the service with the most Central American soccer content in the U.S.”

“Fútbol is both a vital unifier and a celebrated source of connection for the Hispanic/Latino community. This new partnership gives us the unique opportunity to further democratize access to the sport, providing Central American soccer fans yet another avenue to enjoy ‘the beautiful game’ on their preferred devices, wherever they may be in North America,” commented Alan J. Sokol, president & CEO of Hemisphere Media Group, Inc., the network’s parent company. “Digital platforms continue to experience booming growth, and Fanatiz is no exception; as content providers, it is imperative to stay at the forefront of new technologies and platforms, growing and developing with them. We are thrilled about this new partnership which further amplifies our offering and allows us to reach new markets populated by the communities we serve.”

Fanatiz is also the destination where Central American expats living in Puerto Rico and the U.S. can enjoy and cheer on their favorite players from their native countries who are succeeding in European leagues. Players like Keylor Navas from Costa Rica can be seen playing with Paris Saint-Germain F.C., Bryan Rochez from Honduras with C.D. Nacional and Óscar Duarte and Anthony Lozano in LaLiga de España.

The partnership also expands Fanatiz’s and CentroAméricaTV’s footprint in Canada, marking the first time both platform and network will be available to Canada-based Central Americans – one of the biggest, and fastest-growing Hispanic/Latino communities in the country. “Soccer’s popularity is at an all-time high, and we’re thrilled to finally bring more of our content to fans in Canada,” added Jose Romero, Fanatiz Chief Marketing Officer. “In addition to the top-flight soccer programming available on Fanatiz already, we are always listening to our subscribers’ wants and needs. As a response to a high quantity of Hispanic soccer fans living in Canada seeking access to their favorite Central American soccer teams, we have decided to expand our efforts and bring our fans one step closer to catching their favorite teams when and how they want.”
