2. MLS: Back on Univision
Beginning in the 2007 season and through 2014, Spanish-language Univision
networks will broadcast 25 MLS games per season.
MLS had games on Univision in 1996-98 and Univision rival Telemundo the
following three years, but the league had no national media reach in the
important Hispanic community since.
Under the agreement with Soccer United Marketing (SUM), MLS and U.S. national
teams games will be televised on all three of Univision's networks: Univision,
Telefutura and Galavision.
"Univision, as the No. 1 television network for U.S. Hispanic soccer fans,
believes that the future of the sport in this country depends on Hispanic
America embracing it at its highest levels here, and we are proud to showcase
MLS and the U.S. national team as we collectively realize that new future," said
David Downs, President of Univision Sports.
THE UNIVISION-SUM AGREEMENT INCLUDES:
* 25 MLS matches live, primarily on Sunday nights, starting with the 2007
season, televised by Univision/TeleFutura.
* 10 U.S. national team games televised by Univision/Galavision.
* 2 marquee MLS matches, the MLS All-Star Game and MLS Cup, televised by
* Univision/TeleFutura will highlight MLS games on its two main sports shows:
Republica Deportiva (Sunday, 11 am ET on Univision) and Contacto Deportivo
(daily, 11:00p.m. ET on TeleFutura).
