Club World Cup

FIFA Club World Cup TV schedule for viewers in United States

FIFA’s coverage of the 2019 Club World Cup will be televised across FS2 and FOX Deportes for viewers in the United States.

Featuring participants Liverpool (European champions), Flamengo (Copa Libertadores champions), ES Tunis (African champions), Monterrey (CONCACAF champions), Al Hilal (Asian champions), Hienghène (Oceanic champions) and Al Sadd (host team), the tournament will give us our first introduction to many of the stadiums that will be hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Scheduled for December 11 through December 21, all of the games will be televised live on FOX Deportes. On English-language TV, the games will be shown across FS2 and FOX Soccer Plus except the final which will only be televised in Spanish. Reason being is that FOX Sports is broadcasting college basketball on FOX, FS1 and FS2 at the same time as the final, while FOX Soccer Plus will broadcast a Bundesliga match.

Even though Telemundo has the rights to the FIFA World Cup and FIFA Women’s World Cup, the rights for the Club World Cup were sold separately by an agency and is not included in the FIFA World Cup package even though it includes the FIFA name.

All of the games will be played in Doha.

    I watched it on BBC ONE , Live at 12:30 pm (EST) as I have IPTV great coverage Gary Lineker as host , Danny Murphy & Glen Johnson as pundits , Steve Wilson & Steve Warnock as commentators . Great experience who needs FOX

    I am watching, just not on Fox, all’s well.

    Flamengo is a good side, after the initial Liverpool onslaught, it’s been an even game. TAA should take better care of defending his wing. Bruno Henrique beat him a couple of times…the Quatari referee is not very good.

    Hah!!! No self respecting, customer oriented broadcaster would publicly televise all games, and then privatize the final…..would they. – FOX?? Think about the message!!

    How can fox sports justify, not showing the Fifa club world cup final in it’s program, having shown all other matches for it’s non-hispanic viewers? It’s pathetic and down-right ignorant to the viewership preferences, if they have scheduling conflicts, they should have stayed out of the process to bid for the rights. It’s also a disgrace for FIFA, that they did not insert clauses that ensures broadcast of the games in the United states, in all preferred languages. I feel like they should be sued for lingustic bias overlooking the dominant standard. someone needs to kick out the prejudice from fox sports administraters.

    The problem is Fox Sports is going to get away with this without facing any consequences. For those of you who are paying for Fox Soccer Match Pass, you too are out of luck. What exactly is going on here? Can we please get some answers? I’m not a Liverpool fan but like watching them play. I’ve been a Borussia Dortmund supporter for a long time. I do like Jurgen Klopp, who doesn’t?

    The final is tape delay at 5pm on Fox2 on Saturday 21st

    Why on earth buy the rights to a tournament and broadcast some unimportant matches and then to skip the final involving the European Champions and those from South America? Absolutely idiotic, but in line with the way Fox covers football. Outrageous.

    The games have been good. I’m glad FS1 is carry some of it on delay. And I’m glad Fox Sports is streaming the final. One of things I like about soccer is the various types of match-ups and competitions that can take place, so I think this is fun to watch.

    According to the website livesoccertv, the Final on Saturday will be streaming on Fox It says Authentication required. I’m guessing If we go to FOX’s website we might be able to access the stream.

      That lising of in livesoccertv is very misleading. I got fooled by it previously. If u go to their website, they will ask for the TV providers credentials. Once u log in, u’ll be able to watch the Fox Deportes stream (in this case) in ur computer. So, it is useful when u do not have a phone or a tablet or a TV, and need to watch it in a computer of some type.

    It looks like there are a few airings on FS1 and FS2 on a delayed basis in English. Doesn’t make up for not having a live English option but still nice that it will eventually air.

      I’ve been following it or watching when available on TV since it was name the “Toyota Cup ” (1980). This tournament was founded in 1960 & known as the ” Intercontinental Cup” It use to be only between the European Club Champion vs South American Club Champion. For many years it was a big deal to win this trophy.

    I can see why so many people are upset. Unfortunately this is sort of par for the course in the good ol” USA…been happening for years. FINALLY they actually have announcers that pronounce the names properly and are much better about liberal usage of American sports analogies. But then
    again, this is a seriously minor tournament. If Liverpool goes all out risking their best players getting injured for such a minor prize…they are idiots!! Let the other clubs have it. If another team wins it and beats Liverpool…let them be deluded into thinking they are the World’s best.

      Klopp is going to go all out

    • Yespage

      I don’t think Liverpool want to go all out… it is expected of them by FIFA. The prize money is pretty good too, even if the trophy is meaningless.

    Why cant Fox put the final on one of their streaming platforms like Fox Sports GO or Fox Soccer Plus?

    Fox truly are one of the worst soccer broadcasters in America. It’s a shame Fox and TNT cant put as much effort into their soccer coverage as NBC does.

    Not showing the final is ridiculous. But then I remembered, this is somewhat of a fake cup, so that in itself is ridiculous.

    Liverpool win the cup, don’t care. Liverpool lose the cup (preferrably in the first game), that might actually make things better schedule wise… if not for the stupid 3rd Place game in a ridiculously unnecessary tournament!

    That said, pulling for Hienghene Sport, a team from a country with around 300,000 people. Looking at the OFC Champions League, the finalists were both from New Caledonia.

      “Unnecessary tournament” is what the English said about the World Cup in the 1930’s. I think it is entertaining to see unique match ups.

    The final being solely available on Fox Deportes is a rather shocking programming decision by Fox.

    I guess I will find other ways to catch the game if Liverpool makes the final next Saturday.

    Will Telemundo Deportes will get next year or 2021 of the FIFA club world cup?

    Even if the Final is only in Spanish, you still won’t be able to watch it unless you subscribe to a Spanish package to get Fox Deportes. It doesn’t come on standard cable like Univision Deportes aka TUDN does. For example: I get TUDN & Galavision both in HD without subscribing to a Spanish package.

    Yea, probably just watch it on BBC using SmartDNS.

    Smart thinking Fox! All the buildup matches yet when it comes to the final some run-of-the-mill basketball game ,just 1 of some @ 3,000 available on broadcast-cable TV each fall/winter takes precedence. And compound that with Fox nor finding 2 hours for it on its dying soccer channel which shows more rugby or javelin throwing than soccer.Couldn’t delay that most critical Bundesliga for a 2 hour tape delay as American viewers are chomping at the bit for Bundesliga football. Darn fools. Just another example of the Peter Principle (look it up) at play in Fox sports management,

      This is why Fox Sports has become a joke. Soccer leagues and organizations should think twice before allowing Fox the rights to their product. They will kill the product even if they pay a hefty sum for the rights.

      I am a lifelong Liverpool fan from the UK who moved to the US permanently in 2016. I cannot agree more with Cliff. The Premier League coverage by NBC is phenomenal. This is a big kick in the teeth from Fox who cannot get their act together and move either of the college basketball games or show them on delay. I guess I am going to have to switch off my phone to avoid texts from friends back in England and wait till 12.00pm for the delay. I guess if it was the FOX CEO’s old college playing football it would be prioritized. But hey who am I to question when the world’s most popular spectator sport is overlooked!

        Agree wholeheartedly with comment on NBC’s coverage of Premier League and Fox’s inability to to do the same.
