Last night's El Clásico football match between Barcelona and Real Madrid was broadcast live by Mediapro in more than 50 countries.

The match, which saw Barcelona beat Real Madrid with goals from Neymar and Alexis Sanchez, was distributed in HD and 3D for ESPN and Bein Sport USA, reaching the whole football audience of the Americas as well as Europe.

The potential audience is 400 million viewers, although it's expected to be even bigger as this year the match time meant it fitted in most countries' schedules.
The main international channels all purchased the broadcasting rights. Fox Sports, Bein Sport USA and France, Canal+ Sweden and África, ESPN and Al Jazeera all broadcast it for the first time, with Al Jazeera even placing its team of journalists at the stadium.
Mediapro had more than 300 professionals, 10 mobile units, one set of 3D equipment, and 36 cameras in the stadium. The company's Gol Televisión had its own team for the pre and post match reporting.
