Gol TV to televise Monday matches

MADRID - Gol Television, a unit of Spanish media group Mediapro, will broadcast the reintroduced Monday night La Liga match from February 15.

Games are to be shown at 2100 local time and subscribers will not face any extra charge, Mediapro said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Spanish football federation (RFEF) and the professional football league (LFP) agreed last week to reintroduce matches on Mondays.

The LFP said the move would enable La Liga to better compete with rivals in other countries and clubs would get more money from TV deals.
