goltv-logo1Following up on its successful coverage of the 2009 Peace Cup, GolTV announced this morning that it’ll be televising the Emirates Cup featuring Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Paris St. Germain and Glasgow Rangers.

The tournament begins on Saturday, Aug. 1 as Rangers take on Paris Saint-Germain at 9:30 a.m. ET, followed by Arsenal versus Atlético Madrid at 11:30 a.m. ET.  The following day kicks off as Paris Saint-Germain takes on Atlético Madrid at 9:30 a.m. ET, with Arsenal and Rangers closing the tournament with the final competition at 11:30 a.m. ET.

Hosted by Arsenal FC, the 2009 Emirates Cup is the third annual pre-season tournament held at Emirates Stadium in London.  The two-day tournament is played group style, meaning each team plays two matches and is awarded three points for a win, one point for a draw and one point for every goal scored.  The team with the highest point total at the end of the tournament is crowned the 2009 Emirates Cup Champion.

“We’re gearing up for the European club soccer season, including the kickoff of Spain’s La Liga on GolTV.  This high-profile tournament offers all of us soccer fans a chance to gain insight on what the upcoming season will hold for clubs and players from four top leagues,” said Enzo Francescoli, Founder & CEO of GolTV.

    Don’t know where to put this, but huge news coming out from the UK that Derek Rae is poised to be commentating on ESPN UK’s Scottish Premier League coverage.

    I am officially in a countdown mode. I think the Bundesliga starts a week before the Premier League, and La Liga starts at the end of August!
    It is almost here, people!!!
    Gaffer: I have seen rumors floating around about GolTV subleasing its Bundesliga rights to ESPN, the same way they did it w/ the La Liga rights. Is that true?
    If yes, any details? The Bundesliga was very entertaining last season, and I wouldn’t mind watching some games on ESPN2.

    Does GOLTV have a internet broadband type deal like Setanta? My cable company sucks and I don’t get GOLTV.
