- In a recent article about a Premier League match on Fox Soccer Channel, I mentioned how disappointed I was that Fox included a mention in the corner of the screen that the NFL was returning to Fox. I ended the piece by mentioning how Fox’s NFL coverage would never plug FSC. Well, I was wrong. I was glad to hear from Fox Soccer Channel who explained that there actually was cross-promotion during August as Fox Soccer Channel promo spots for the UEFA Champions League ran during NFL on Fox preseason game telecasts on 8/20, 8/21 and 8/27. Nice job Fox.
