Copa America

Who do you think should acquire TV rights to Copa America Centenario?


Last May, we reported that FOX Sports was on the verge of being announced as the TV rights holder to Copa America Centenario, which was to be held in the United States. And then the FIFA/CONCACAF/CONMEBOL scandals happened, which put the future of the tournament in doubt.

After it was announced that the tournament would continue, the TV rights were put out for bidding once more, and FOX Sports (and rival networks) had to start the process all over again.

Having to rebid on the rights puts FOX Sports at a disadvantage. Their rivals will have a good idea of how much FOX Sports originally bid last year to almost acquire the rights, and therefore will know roughly what bid may be necessary to win the rights.

We expect to hear an announcement in the near future regarding who won the rights, but who do you think should acquire them?

    Honestly bein did a good job with last year’s Copa America. I don’t expect them to win but I wouldn’t mind if they did.

    Don’t forget that this is a Latin American competition with some North American and Caribbean guests. Spanish-language coverage is crucial. ESPN and Fox have a huge advantage over NBC on that.

      Umm, not at all. NBC own Telemundo which has a much larger viewership than ESPN Deportes or Fox Sports Deportes.

      Uh, I think the folks at Telemundo might disagree with you…

    ESPN needs more soccer. Final and semis could be on ABC.
