Telemundo has signed a multi-year deal that gives it exclusive U.S. media rights to Liga MX’s Club Deportivo Chivas de Guadalajara.
The agreement includes rights to all Chivas home games in Spanish and English across all Telemundo platforms.
In addition to the men’s team, Telemundo Deportes will also carry rights to the women’s club, Chivas Femenil, and their youth team Cantera Rojiblanca.
As part of efforts to boost its coverage around matches, Telemundo Deportes and Chivas de Guadalajara will create additional multimedia content, programming and promotional opportunities to enhance the Chivas de Guadalajara brand experience across Comcast and NBCUniversal properties, including Peacock, in addition to all Telemundo platforms.
Miguel Gurwitz will host the network’s pre, post and half-time game Chivas coverage with former Mexican soccer player Carlos Hermosillo, who spent the final year of his club career with Chivas de Guadalajara in 2001. Andrés Cantor will provide play-by-play commentary, alongside Chivas de Guadalajara veteran, Manuel Sol. Ana Jurka will also regularly contribute to the pre-game coverage.
Coverage of Chivas on Telemundo, with the Guardianes 2020 opening match kicking off Saturday, July 25.
