Future Of Fox Soccer Report Uncertain After Fox Sports World Canada Plans to Shut Down

fox soccer report Future Of Fox Soccer Report Uncertain After Fox Sports World Canada Plans to Shut Down

The future of the popular nightly soccer highlights show Fox Soccer Report is up in the air after Shaw Media recently announced that its Fox Sports World Canada network will cease broadcasting on April 30, 2012.

“We are currently in discussions with Fox Soccer Channel in the US, however, about the possibility of continuing to license the Fox Soccer Report, a one-hour program which is produced by our team in Winnipeg and licensed internationally,” said a statement from Shaw Media.

Fox Soccer Report is produced by Fox Sports World Canada, which is owned by Shaw Media. The show itself is created in Winnipeg, and recorded nightly from the 30th floor of the CanWest Plaza. The 60 minute show, which was formerly called Fox Sports World Report, airs nightly at 10pm ET.

What are your thoughts? Are you hopeful that FOX Soccer will be able to reach a decision with Shaw Media to continue running the show from Canada, or does it make sense for FOX to consider hosting its own show from its studios in Los Angeles? Share your opinions in the comments section below.
