CONCACAF announced Tuesday that it has signed a four-year agreement with FOX Soccer to broadcast the CONCACAF Gold Cup and CONCACAF Champions League.
The deal starts with the current Champions League season, continuing through the 2015-2016 edition. It also covers the 2013 and 2015 Gold Cups, giving FOX Soccer exclusive English-language rights in the United States to both of CONCACAF’s showpiece events.
“We are extremely proud to continue our partnership with FOX Soccer,” CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb said. “CONCACAF is committed to organizing great tournaments that showcase many of the best players in the world.
“The incredible success of our teams at the Olympics demonstrates the deep pool of talent that our member associations are developing throughout the confederation. Our agreement with FOX Soccer offers us the stage to present that talent to the American audience.”
FOX Soccer has the option of broadcasting all Champions League and Gold Cup matches through its wide array of multimedia platforms that also includes FOX Soccer Plus and FOXSoccer2Go.com. This component of the agreement also allows for on-demand access to all matches and highlights, providing FOX Soccer’s fan base exclusive access to the region’s top domestic competitions.
“Our new agreement with CONCACAF comes at a time when soccer in our region of the world is better than ever, with both Gold medal winners from this year’s Olympic Games hailing from North America,” FOX Soccer executive vice president and general manager David Nathanson said. “Providing unparalleled access to our region’s top competitions adds to FOX Soccer’s comprehensive portfolio of premier global properties.”
