elemundo Becomes The Exclusive Spanish-Language Home Of The U.S. National Teams Across Platforms Beginning In 2023

A new era for Spanish-speaking audiences in the U.S. will begin this week, as the USMNT and USWNT will be calling Telemundo and its sister platforms their new home for the next World Cup cycle.

Content for both national teams will be available on the award-winning company who recently struck record numbers with its coverage of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, led by a stellar team of analysts and with new features for fans to enjoy.

"Building off the momentum of a historic World Cup 2022, we are proud to partner with the U.S. Soccer Federation and become the new exclusive Spanish-language home of Team USA. The U.S. National Teams will be a cornerstone of our portfolio of premier sports franchises, multiplatform live sports offering and new IP content creation," NBCUniversal Enterprises Chairman Beau Ferrari said. "We look forward to together propelling the growth of soccer in the United States and serving our audiences across all platforms, as we build toward the FIFA Women's World Cup in 2023 and FIFA Men's World Cup in the United States, Mexico and Canada in 2026," the exec added.

Cindy Parlow, U.S. Soccer Federation president shared the entity's excitement for this new deal.

"We're incredibly excited to begin our partnership with Telemundo as we continue to bring the passion of our sport and National Teams to Spanish-speaking audiences. It's a special time for soccer in the United States, and Telemundo's commitment to double-down and amplify the sports growth through their unparalleled portfolio of platforms serves as an incredible foundation of the partnership. With Telemundo as the rights holder of the FIFA World Cup, the FIFA Women's World Cup, Olympic Games, and the Premier League, there will be prominent opportunities to highlight our players and teams to bring unprecedented access to fans during marquee moments," Parlow added.

The agreement will see over 20 U.S. National team games across Telemundo, Universo, and Peacock. National team friendlies, the SheBelieves Cup, key matches for both teams, select CONCACAF Nations League games, and premium clashes against Mexico will be included in this new deal.

The partnership begins in 2023 with U.S. Women's international friendly matches against New Zealand on Jan. 17 and Friday, Jan. 20 airing live at 10:05 p.m. ET on Universo and streaming on Peacock and the Telemundo app.

Coverage for all these games will have Telemundo Deportes' award-winning commentary team, with Andrés Cantor providing play-by-play commentary and Manuel Sol as their star analyst. Pre-game and post-match analysis will include Emmy-award winning journalist Miguel Gurwitz along with Ana Jurka and Carlota Vizmanos.
