Concacaf announced Thursday that Yahoo Sports will stream the 2019 Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League on its iOS and android apps, plus YahooSports.com. The tournament begins in five days.

In 2018, Concacaf and Verizon announced a ground-breaking multi-platform media rights deal to distribute Concacaf tournaments across Verizon’s digital media platforms, which include Yahoo Sports. The deal gave Verizon exclusive English language rights to distribute multiple Confederation tournaments in the United States

Those who do not have access to Yahoo Sports’ digital properties, or who want to watch in Spanish, can do so on Univision Deportes.

Despite the belated announcement, it’s very much a welcome one for English-language fans. Yahoo Sports is not only a very popular and easy-to-find app/website, but Yahoo also has experience and is well-equipped to stream live events.

Atlanta United kicks off it 2019 Concacaf Champions League campaign on the road against CS Herediano on Thursday, February 21 at 10 p.m. ET. Atlanta United will host the return leg at Fifth Third Bank Stadium in Kennessaw at 8 p.m. ET Thursday, February 28.
