Fox Sports has secured the English language broadcast rights to Mexican National Team games through the 2018 World Cup, the network announced today.
Fox Sports 1 will televise all El Tri home matches, including a highly anticipated qualifier between Mexico and the United States from the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, should both teams advance in World Cup qualifying.
“Outside of Mexico, the United States has more El Tricolor supporters than anywhere else in the world,” said David Nathanson, head of business operations for Fox Sports. “FOX Sports is now home to the most prestigious tournaments featuring El Tricolor including the 2016 Copa America Centenario, 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup for which Mexico will represent the CONCACAF region, and the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.”
The first game under the deal airs Wednesday when Mexico, under new coach Juan Carlos Osorio, faces Senegal.
