It’s not the biggest surprise given FSC was the home of the now defunct CONCACAF Champions Cup, but the network has announced today it will be the English-language home of the new CONCACAF Champions League for a four year period beginning this August. FSC, in addition to holding TV rights, will also hold internet, broadband, and mobile rights to the event.
The 24 team competition will feature entrants from 10 countries and the Caribbean, with the United States and Mexico each getting 4 teams in the event. Last week, CONCACAF confirmed this year’s US teams as being the Houston Dynamo, D.C. United, the New England Revolution, and Chivas USA. The first two will automatically make the 16-team group stage, while the latter two will have to play a two-leg preliminary round to reach the same stage.
Fox Soccer Channel says it plans to air approximately 56 of the tournament’s 78 matches, including all quarterfinal, semifinal and final matches as well as all group stage matches with MLS clubs. The Spanish-language rights to the tournament in the United States was previously won by Univision.
