NEW YORK – Jan. 25, 2024 – TelevisaUnivision, the world’s leading Spanish-language media and content company, and Liga MX, the most-watched soccer league in the U.S., today announced State Farm® as the exclusive insurance partner of Liga MX in the U.S., the league’s first official domestic insurance partner. State Farm joins T-Mobile and Patria as foundational sponsors for Liga MX in the U.S., following TelevisaUnivision’s landmark partnership that brought the Mexican soccer league’s commercial rights to the U.S. in 2022. 

As part of the new partnership, State Farm will serve as the presenting sponsor for halftime coverage in both Liga MX and Liga MX Femenil matches, as well as on-site activations throughout the year in select markets during Liga MX viewing parties, also known as Fiestónes. TelevisaUnivision and State Farm will also collaborate on the production of new, contextually-relevant advertising creative, featuring Liga MX marks and logos, which will run across Liga MX programming – and beyond – beginning next month.  

“Sports bring friends and neighbors together. State Farm is proud to be the exclusive insurance partner of Liga MX, the most-watched soccer league in the U.S.,” said Kristyn Cook, Executive Vice President and Chief Agency, Sales & Marketing Officer at State Farm. “It also gives us an opportunity to continue our investment in women’s sports through a presenting sponsorship of Liga MX Femenil’s halftime coverage.” 

 

“We are so excited to welcome State Farm as the exclusive insurance partner for Liga MX and Liga MX Femenil,” said Dan Riess, Executive Vice President and Chief Growth Officer of U.S. Advertising at TelevisaUnivision. “Liga MX is a cultural powerhouse in the Hispanic community, and it’s our mission to help marketers like State Farm build real brand love through these types of long-term partnerships. Our Así Studios team is especially proud to partner with State Farm in building just the right content for Liga MX fanáticos.” 

Liga MX’s Torneo Clausura kicked off on Friday, Jan. 12, with coverage continuing on TUDN and across TelevisaUnivision networks and platform, leading up to the championship game, and the Campeón de Campeones in June. 

“State Farm’s reputation and experience in the sports marketing landscape speaks for itself, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome them as a partner of Liga MX,” said Mikel Arriola, President at Liga MX. “Strong partnerships such as this one allow us to build on the momentum and unique passion among our U.S. fanbase.”
