ITV have announced they will broadcast 10 LaLiga games for free this season, with Barcelona or Real Madrid involved in each one.
The three-year deal, confirmed on Friday, sees games being shown on ITV, ITV4 and the ITV Hub.
The first free-to-air game selected is Real Sociedad v Barcelona, which will be available to watch on ITV4 from 20:30 on Sunday 21 August.
As part of the deal, Premier Sports will continue to show LaLiga games in the UK.
Following the news, ITV sporting director Niall Sloane said: “This agreement ensures all football fans free coverage of one of the most entertaining leagues in the world.
“The deal with Premier Sports gives fans the opportunity to see some of the most famous clubs and world-class players in action live on ITV.”
The deal means ITV has secured the rights to show LaLiga football up to and including the 2024/25 season.
Real Madrid are the current LaLiga champions after clinching their 35th Spanish title last season.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side finished 13 points ahead of rivals Barcelona and 15 ahead of Atletico Madrid.
And they also clinched their 14th European trophy after beating Liverpool 1-0 in the Champions League final.

Meanwhile, Barcelona were eliminated from the Champions League group stage for the first time in 20 years last season.
They were then relegated to the Europa League, but lost to Eintracht Frankfurt in the quarter-finals.
However, a trophy-less season was followed by a string of summer signings – despite the club’s financial crisis.
They brought in Raphinha, Jules Kounde, Robert Lewandowski, Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen.
The Catalan giants are also heavily linked with Marcos Alonso and Bernardo Silva.
