Miami catching up with New York and Los Angeles as soccer media capital in US

The Miami area has in the past few years quickly emerged as the third soccer media hub in the United States rivaling Los Angeles and New York. For a long time, the area hosted GolTV, which was the first national 24-hour soccer network on cable and satellite TV.

The ESPN Empire Strikes Back

On English language websites yesterday the big news surrounding ESPN is about the network acquiring Setanta’s package to air Premier League matches in the UK. But perhaps bigger news was made stateside as ESPN returned to showing regular European league football for the first time since losing La Liga rights in the early part of this decade.
