Fox Sports World will retain the exclusive U.S. telecast rights to this year’s UEFA Cup final and UEFA Super Cup final soccer matches following an agreement between Fox Sports International and the Union of European Football Associations.

The games will also air on Spanish-language sports-television services Fox Sports en Español in the United States and Fox Sports Latin America

This will mark the fourth consecutive year the two championships have aired on Fox Sports World.

The UEFA Cup final will be held Wednesday, May 19, in Gothenburg, Sweden, while the UEFA Super Cup final is set for Friday, Aug. 27, in Monaco.

“The UEFA Cup final and Super Cup are among the most prestigious events on the global soccer calendar,” Fox Sports International senior vice president and general manager David Sternberg said in a prepared statement.

“Having both UEFA Cup competitions available across three Fox Sports television platforms will be tremendously exciting for our viewers throughout the Americas,” he added.
