NYON, SWITZERLAND (AP) - UEFA says Fox Sports has purchased the U.S. broadcast rights for the Europa League in the 2012-15 seasons, replacing DirecTV.

UEFA did not disclose what Fox paid for the three-year deal.

UEFA says Fox Soccer Channel will broadcast at least two matches live each week that games are scheduled. Fox Soccer Plus will show live matches up the quarterfinals stage.

UEFA says Fox Sports also has bought non-exclusive rights in the Caribbean.

Fox Sports recently acquired rights to show UEFA’s marquee club competition, the Champions League, in a three-season deal through 2015.
