Bell Canada Enterprises Inc. subsidiary Bell Media announced Thursday that it has reached an agreement with Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) for the media rights to soccer programming from 2015 through 2022. The comprehensive rights package including exclusive, French and English-language Canadian broadcast rights to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada, Bell said in a release. Bell said soccer coverage will be available on CTV, TSN, RDS, TSN Radio, TSN.ca and RDS.ca, and TSN Mobile TV and RDS Mobile TV. “This is a historic day for Bell Media and sports broadcasting in Canada. We are thrilled that FIFA has recognized our unmatched ability to produce, promote and market the World Cup to all Canadians,” Phil King, president of CTV programming and sports, said in a statement. “Our production team has a long legacy of delivering outstanding coverage of major international events across multiple platforms.” Bell Media has also won the Canadian broadcast rights to the London 2012 Olympic Games. In a release Thursday, CBC/Radio-Canada said it was disappointed with FIFA's decision to award the rights to Bell. "Keeping in mind our responsibility to the stakeholders of CBC, we put forward a strong, highly competitive and financially responsible bid," Kirstine Stewart, executive vice-president of CBC English Services. "Bell Media submitted a higher bid and was chosen for the 2015-2022 FIFA events." CBC remains Canada's official broadcaster of FIFA events until 2014, including the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
