Following up on last week’s draw for the 2019 Copa America, Telemundo Deportes has revealed more details about their coverage plans for this summer’s competition that’ll feature the stellar teams from South America as well as special guests Japan and Qatar.
From June 14 to July 7, Telemundo Deportes will present all 26 matches live in Spanish on Telemundo, Universo, and Telemundo Deportes’ app and digital platforms. Telemundo Deportes will offer the most extensive Spanish-language coverage ever across all its media platforms, ensuring the most robust viewing experience for all soccer fans.
Renowned sports journalist Miguel Gurwitz and Mexican soccer legend Carlos Hermosillo team up to lead the coverage of the 2019 Copa America live from Brazil. The network’s soccer experts will participate in the coverage, offering match commentary and analysis led by five-time Emmy Award winner Andres Cantor alongside experts Sammy Sadovnik, Copan Alvarez, Manuel So, Erasmo Provenza and Viviana Vila.
Telemundo will be covering all angles of the event with a dedicated production team based in the heart of Rio de Janeiro throughout the duration of the tournament, and a host position featuring stunning views from Copacabana.
