Copa America draw to air live on Telemundo Deportes

The draw for Copa America 2019, this summer’s biggest men’s soccer tournament, will be televised live on Telemundo Deportes Thursday from 5:30pm ET to viewers in the United States.

Viewers will be able to discover which groups the 12 participating countries will find themselves in from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Japan and Qatar. No doubt that the anticipation will be building for the competition, which promises to feature South America’s biggest soccer stars including Brazil’s Neymar, Copa America Winner Luis Suarez of Uruguay, Argentinian soccer legend Lionel Messi, and Colombia’s James Rodriguez, among many others.

Telemundo Deportes will feature a special 90-minute broadcast of Titulares y Más: Fiesta del Sorteo with live reactions as the draw takes place. The 90-minute show will be anchored by hosts Karim Mendiburu, Miguel Gurwitz and Carlos Hermosillo from studio, and the participation of Telemundo Deportes’ Sammy Sadovnik providing interviews and live reports from Rio de Janeiro. The show will feature analysis and live reactions from Andrés Cantor and Eduardo Biscayart as the Draw takes place as well as special guests, including an interview with CONMEBOL President Alejandro Dominguez.

    NBC would be the ideal choice . But they would have to hire South American analysis . I don’t think Arlo White , Rebbeca Lowe , Robbie Mustoe or Robbie Earle are in that category

      ESPN+ where they would just stream the matches and not have to worry about pre/post match production. Or beIN where they already have talent versed in South American football to a larger degree than the other networks.

    Is there a default clause where if it goes down to the NBC gets the english rights simply because of no bids and them being the partner company of Telemundo?

      No default clause. If no one pays for the English-language rights, then there won’t be any English-language broadcasts. CONMEBOL doesn’t want to devalue the price of the rights by giving them away.

    Are NBC sports is going to bid Copa America since Telemundo grabs the Spanish rights.
    NBC and Telemundo are Comcast company

    I wouldn’t think they’d go after it since it wouldn’t be available for beIN Sports En Espanol where they’d receive the most viewers for it. Would showing on beIN Sports and including the SAP option even be allowable? If not, most of their viewers would watch on Telemundo anyway.

      It wouldn’t be allowable to have a SAP option. So it would be English-language broadcasts only. If the price is right, there should still be enough interest in the tournament. The challenge is that the Women’s World Cup and Gold Cup are happening at the same time.

        Thanks Christopher. With that said, would seem only beIN and ESPN should be in the running for it then. Possibly ESPN+ with the final on ESPN or ESPN2.

          By the creation of ESPN plus, the network wants you to forget about ESPN3. It’s still in business and we’re paying for it. ESPN can easily acquire the rights for the 2019 Copa America for streaming only or TV. The Gold Cup and the WWC are happening at the same time. I would think ESPN would like to compete, take away viewers from Fox Sports.

    What is the chances that beIN would pick up the english rights since it is during a break from the Copa Libertadores???
