Iran's second largest mobile operator, MTN-Irancell, signed an online broadcasting rights agreement with La Liga, the top professional association soccer division of Spain, Financial Tribune daily reported on Saturday.

The deal was signed here by Irancell CEO, Alireza Ghalambor Dezfouli, and corporate general manager of La Liga, Javier Gomez Molina, the report said.

"This agreement amplifies further the global recognition of La Liga brand..., and it helps us to connect and engage further with our millions of fans in Iran in a very innovative way," said Gomez Molina without detailing on the contract.
