World Soccer Talk shared news this week that ESPN+ will now be able to broadcast 2019 CONMEBOL Copa América games in both English and Portuguese for those in the US.
Telemundo Deportes has had Spanish language rights to the games since last year. This new agreement with ESPN+ will open the games up to an even larger audience by including the two additional languages for US soccer fans.
The streaming service from ESPN will be airing all 26 games from the season live, in both languages. The games, organized by South America’s CONMEBOL and taking place in Brazil, will run from June 14 to July 7. According to the agreement, games in English and Portuguese will be exclusively available on ESPN+ and will not air on TV.
For access to Copa América in English and Portuguese, you’ll need a subscription to ESPN+. The service costs $4.99/month with a 7 day free trial.
