Univision Deportes has revealed its schedule for this summer’s Copa America Centenario tournament. The Spanish-language network will air all matches across Univision Deportes’ portfolio of networks including Univision Deportes Network, UniMás and Univision Network. The first match of the tournament will be simultaneously broadcast on all three networks, the first for a sports event on Univision.
“Univision Deportes is the choice destination for soccer fanáticos in the U.S.,” said Juan Carlos Rodriguez, President of Univision Deportes. “It is only fitting that we are the home of this very special edition of the Copa America tournament, marking not only its 100-year anniversary but also the first time that the tournament is played in the U.S. We continue to deliver on our strategy to have the best-in-class soccer content for our passionate and engaged viewers.”
Copa America Centenario features two confederations, Conmebol and CONCACAF, and will kick off with the United States versus Colombia on June 3rd. Other highlights include a reunion between 2015 Copa America finale teams Argentina and Chile and a Gold Cup 2015 final rematch between Mexico and Jamaica.
All 32 games will be broadcast live and coverage will include at least two hours of live pre and post-game commentary on UDN. Special editions of live studio shows will air each day of the tournament to ensure that viewers get access to all of the latest Copa America news instantaneously.
The opening game of Copa America Centenario will be played in Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, and will air live on Univision, UniMás and UDN at 9:00 p.m. ET, the first ever three-network simulcast in the history of Spanish language television.
