FOX Sports has announced the commentators that will be bringing the Copa America Centenario to you this summer in the highly anticipated tournament that should be the biggest soccer event in the US since World Cup 1994.
The broadcasting pairings for FOX Sports’ coverage of 2016 COPA AMERICA CENTENARIO are as follows:
John Strong & Brad Friedel
JP Dellacamera & Stuart Holden
Justin Kutcher & Cobi Jones
Mark Followill & Cobi Jones
Mark Followill & Herculez Gomez
Kyndra De St. Aubin
Francisco X. Rivera
FOX Sports’ five broadcast teams feature several familiar names except for Mark Followill, who FC Dallas supporters will recognize as their local commentator.
A glaring omission from the sideline reporters is Julie Stewart-Binks. According to a World Soccer Talk source, Stewart-Binks is leaving FOX. A spokesperson for FOX Sports declined to comment.
The tournament kicks off Friday, June 3, from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, as the United States faces Colombia. Play-by-play announcer John Strong calls the action with analyst Brad Friedel and reporter Kyndra De St. Aubin, while Rob Stone hosts pre-match, halftime and post-match commentary alongside Alexi Lalas, Fernando Fiore, Herculez Gomez, Eric Wynalda and Aly Wagner throughout the tournament. Fiore handles a host of duties during the event including nine special editions of COPA TONIGHT, the hour-long tournament-themed news and commentary program, during which he is joined by Lalas and Wagner.
