Fox Soccer Channel Secures Exclusive English-Language Rights to 2009 and 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cups

LOS ANGELES – Fox Soccer Channel, the premier television destination in the United States for soccer fans, has confirmed that it has secured English-language rights for the 2009 and 2011 editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup™, the biennial tournament which determines the champion of the North American, Central American and Caribbean region.

Fox Soccer Channel will air live and exclusive coverage of the next two Gold Cup finals in English to U.S. television audiences. In addition, the channel has the rights to all matches played by the U.S. National Team, including three group-stage matches and any potential quarterfinal or semifinal matches.

“The Gold Cup is the top prize for national teams in the CONCACAF region, and there is tremendous national pride at stake,” said David Sternberg, executive vice president and general manager of Fox Soccer Channel. “With the strength of soccer teams in the CONCACAF region at an all-time high, the next two Gold Cups promise to be exciting and hard-fought.”

The U.S. and Mexico have dominated the Gold Cup in recent years, and combined have won eight of the last nine tournaments. The 2007 Gold Cup – also televised exclusively by Fox Soccer Channel – was no exception, as the two rivals added another page to the history books at the final in Chicago. The U.S. took home the Gold Cup for a record-equaling fourth time by rallying to a 2-1 victory, highlighted by the game-winning goal by Benny Feilhaber from outside the penalty area in the second half.

The Gold Cup is one of the many world-class soccer properties airing on Fox Soccer Channel, along with Major League Soccer, England’s Barclays Premier League, the Italian Serie A and the CONCACAF Champions League™.

“We are very pleased to extend our partnership with Fox Soccer Channel on the Gold Cup,” CONCACAF General Secretary Chuck Blazer said. “FSC is well suited to help grow viewership of the tournament in the United States.”
