SPORTFIVE, the leading global sports marketing agency, announces their partnership with Servisky, the Ecuadorian media group, to exclusively represent Ecuador’s 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers on a global scale, excluding South America. This collaboration marks a step forward for Ecuadorian football and provides sports enthusiasts worldwide with an unparalleled viewing experience.
Under this partnership, SPORTFIVE has secured exclusive rights to broadcast nine of Ecuador’s home 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualification matches, in addition to potential intercontinental play-off matches if required. This comprehensive rights package ensures that fans around the world can witness Ecuador’s journey to secure their spot in the prestigious 2026 FIFA World Cup.
One of the aspects of this agreement is SPORTFIVE’s acquisition of the worldwide third-party rights, with the exception of South America, making North and Central America an important part of the viewing experience. This move is set to enhance the reach and accessibility of Ecuadorian football to fans across these regions.
Furthermore, SPORTFIVE has also included betting rights in this partnership, similar to the arrangement made for Brazil, further enriching the viewing experience for fans and partners alike.
Thomas Klingebiel, President Media at SPORTFIVE, says: “We are very excited about this partnership with Servisky and the Ecuadorian Football Federation. Ecuador has one of the largest fan bases in the United States, and the enthusiasm for its national team is unparalleled. With their impressive performance, finishing 4th in the World Cup Qualifiers standings last time out and narrowly missing out on the Round of 16 in Qatar, Ecuador is in for an exciting ride and we are honoured to be a part of it.”
This collaboration with Servisky and the Ecuadorian Football Federation marks SPORTFIVE’s commitment to growing the global appeal of football and showcasing the talent and passion of South American football on a global stage. By acquiring the exclusive broadcast rights to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Ecuador, SPORTFIVE remains at the forefront of sports marketing innovation, connecting fans to the exciting world of international football.
