Fox Soccer Channel Unveils Super Bowl Sunday Programming, Soccer Style

fox soccer channel1 Fox Soccer Channel Unveils Super Bowl Sunday Programming, Soccer StyleExclusive: Fox Soccer Channel is planning on serving up a different taste of football on Super Bowl Sunday for viewers in the United States. Instead of the pigskin variety, Fox Soccer Channel will show the massive game between Chelsea and Liverpool live on Sunday, February 6, with a twist.

Originating from the Fox NFL Sunday set in Los Angeles, Fox will host a special hour-long pre-game show hosted by Christian Miles alongside analysts Eric Wynalda, Warren Barton, Keith Costigan and Kyle Martino exploring the long link between American and world football. The Super Sunday + pre-game show kicks off at 10 a.m. ET.  Supporters of both clubs will join the Fox team and will play a game of five-a-side soccer outside the Studio A set. In addition, Fox Soccer Channel’s Mark Rogondino will file reports from Cowboys Stadium, site of Super Bowl XLV.

After the game between Chelsea and Liverpool ends at 1pm ET, the Super Sunday + team returns on the Fox NFL Sunday set to recap all of the weekend’s European soccer action. That’ll lead into the full day of Super Bowl XLV coverage on Fox Sports beginning with the pregame show live at 2pm ET.

“We are elated to set the table for FOX Sports’ wall-to-wall coverage of Super Bowl XLV with Super Sunday +: Chelsea vs. Liverpool, and potentially expose a new audience of eager sports fans to the excitement of top-flight European soccer,” said David Nathanson, General Manager of FOX Soccer.  “This collaborative effort between members of the FOX Sports Media Group, on the most important day of the American sports calendar, represents the synergistic power of our company at its finest.”
