FX to Show In-Game Highlights of Key Goals From Other EPL Games During Sunderland-Man Utd

All eyes will be glued to the Premier League season-finale on Sunday, where all 10 games will be shown live on US television and Internet across FOX properties and ESPN2. In a press conference this afternoon, FOX Sports shined more light on its coverage plans by announcing that FX’s live coverage of Sunderland against Manchester United will also feature in-game highlights of all of the goals that matter from the other games.

FX plans on showing the in-game highlights in the corner of the screen as the Sunderland versus Manchester United unfolds. This is the first time that FOX has done anything like this for soccer, and it’ll certainly be interesting to watch as FOX’s Eric Wynalda and Rob Stone watch all ten games at once.

In other news, FOX Sports and FOX Soccer said that they will start all of their nine games at the same time as soon as the feeds come in, so they can try to ensure that there are no delays.

“As soon as a goal is scored, scores will drop down from the FOX Box and about every ten minutes we will run through all of the scores to keep you up to date on every channel,” said FOX Sports Media Group Co-President and Co-COO Eric Shanks. “This is a new high point for European soccer here in the U.S. and the Premier League specifically. This is a better experience of Survival Sunday for fans than even what they’re getting in the UK. I still don’t believe that you can watch all of these matches, all at once, in the UK.”
