NBCSN to Broadcast Champions Cup And Preseason Football Matches From US Soil
Later this month fans of Liverpool and Manchester United football teams will have the opportunity to watch these Premier league paragons face off on NBCSN as they tour the US.
Both teams will participate in this summer’s Champions Cup tournament, with matches United vs. Inter Milan and Liverpool vs. AC Milan taking place in Washington, D.C. on July 29th and in Charlotte, N.C August 2nd respectively.
The football match dubbed “Football at Fenway” featuring Liverpool and AS Roma will also be broadcast on NBCSN July 23rd. All the games will be available to stream live online or via NBC Sports Live Extra smartphone apps.
Lead announcer for the UK’s Premier League Arlo White will be joined by former USMNT midfielder Kyle Martino, Premier League player Robbie Mustoe, and NBC sports presenter Rebecca Lowe for the broadcasts.
NBC covered a massive 380 broadcasts of the 2013-2014 Premier League season where many of Britain’s finest teams competed for one of the highest distinctions in competitive and international sport.
The network now has its sights set on coverage of the UEFA Champions League as well. With the US’s growing hunger for football coverage, television networks will do well to expand coverage of global matches
