ZURICH (AP) - FIFA says it completed broadcast deals worth $1.85 billion last week for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

The deals include an estimated $1.2 billion from United States broadcast right sales to Fox, Telemundo and Futbol de Primera Radio.

FIFA says it also sold rights to SBS in Australia, Bell Media in Canada and IMC across the Caribbean.

FIFA also choose Swiss-based agency Infront Sports & Media to handle sales across Asian territories, including China and India.

In March, FIFA said a first wave of 2018-2022 sales raised $1.7 billion from the Middle East and parts of Asia and Latin America.

FIFA made $2.4 billion in broadcast sales worldwide for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
