MIAMI, Fla. – May 23, 2019 – Telemundo Deportes, the exclusive Spanish-language home of the 2019 Copa America, today released its complete game broadcast schedule for the South American tournament that kicks off next June 14 from Brazil. Coverage includes all 26 matches airing live, including 22 matches on Telemundo and four matches on Universo. In addition, all matches will be livestreamed in Spanish via the Telemundo Deportes and NBC Sports apps.

Daily match coverage will be complemented with 30-minutes pre- and post-game shows providing viewers with in-depth analysis, in addition to nightly recaps on Telemundo Deportes’ nightly sports and entertainment show Titulares y Mas. The coverage also includes special, extended shows previewing the Opening Match, Semi-Finals and the Final on July 7 as well as extensive short-form content and daily updates on Telemundo Deportes’ digital platforms.

Telemundo Deportes’ Sports Emmy award winner Miguel Gurwitz, Mexican soccer legend Carlos Hermosillo, and 1986 FIFA World Cup champion, Argentine Claudio Borghi, will serve as the hosts of Copa America, bringing viewers the latest daily news and updates from Rio.

Five-time Emmy award winner Andrés Cantor will be part of Telemundo Deportes’ match commentary team alongside the network’s roster of play-by-play commentators, analysts and soccer experts. Former Mexican National Team and Chivas player Manuel Sol will join Cantor as game analyst. Renowned soccer commentator Copán Álvarez will provide play-by-play alongside Viviana Villa who returns to Telemundo as guest analyst. Two-time Emmy award nominee Sammy Sadovnik will serve as play-by-play commentator alongside the analysis of experienced sports analyst Eduardo Biscayart. In addition, Erasmo Provenza, who joined Telemundo Deportes in Russia and currently serves as host of Telemundo’s Exatlón, will serve as play-by-play commentator alongside Villa and other guest analysts.

Telemundo Deportes’ talent will be joined by soccer experts who return after supporting last summer’s coverage of the World Cup on Telemundo, representing some of the countries participating in the 2019 Copa America and lending a unique “on-the-pitch” perspective to the commentating team. These experts include one of Uruguay’s all-time greatest players, Diego Forlán; Argentinean soccer star, Juan Pablo Sorin; former Colombian National Team player, Juan Pablo Angel; former Uruguayan striker, Sebastian Abreu; and former FIFA World Cup referee, Marco Antonio Rodriguez.

Telemundo Deportes also launched today its marketing campaign to promote Copa America. Under the tagline “That irresistible urge to watch the world’s best,” the humorous campaign features former soccer stars and celebrities who face a dilemma as loyal fans of their home teams playing simultaneously in another tournament this summer, but are simply unable to fight the irresistible urge to watch the world’s best take center stage in Copa America, including Uruguay and Barcelona’s striker Luis Suarez, Barcelona and Argentina Captain Lionel Messi along with Brazilian superstar Neymar.

Those featured on the spots include Mexican soccer legend, Claudio “El Emperador" Suárez, the most capped Mexican National Team player in history; Rolando Fonseca, Costa Rica’s National Team all-time top scorer; Viviana Serna, Colombian actress and girlfriend of Mexican defender Diego Reyes; and Larry Hernandez, renowned Mexican Regional Music singer and star of Universo’s Larrymania.

This summer, Telemundo Deportes will present exclusive Spanish-language coverage of the 2019 Women’s World Cup France and 2019 Copa America Brazil set to offer extensive multimedia coverage with more than 750+ hours of LIVE sports programming including 78 matches in 31 days on two continents across the Telemundo Network, its cable channel Universo, and the Telemundo Deportes and NBC Sports apps in Spanish.
