Telemundo Deportes has scored the exclusive Spanish-language U.S. media rights for the 2019 Copa America, to be held in Brazil.

The 2019 Copa America will be the 46th edition of the quadrennial international men’s soccer championship. Copa America is the oldest international continental soccer competition and determines the continental champion of South America. It is organized by South America’s soccer ruling body CONMEBOL.

Telemundo Deportes is also the exclusive Spanish-language home of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

“We are extremely pleased to join forces with CONMEBOL and the Copa America tournament,” said Ray Warren, president of Telemundo Deportes. “It is a world-class event and perfectly aligns with our approach to partner with owners of the biggest and best global sporting events to bring them to our Spanish-language audience in the U.S.”

Alejandro Dominguez, president of CONMEBOL, added: “We are delighted with Telemundo’s recent acquisition of media rights for our most prestigious and oldest Cup of national football teams. This partnership will ensure that all Spanish-speaking football lovers in the U.S. territory will enjoy the Copa America 2019.”
