MSL Returns to Fox Sports en Español


The Mexican Soccer League will return to Fox Sports en Español for its upcoming season.

The network reached a three-year agreement with Mexican rights-holder Telered Mexicana last year for exclusive U.S. broadcast rights to live MSL action.

As part of the pact, Fox Sports en Español will air at least 14 matches of the just-launched 2005 Torneo Apertura, including the contest between the Tecos of U.A. de Guadalajara and Veracruz Sunday at 5 p.m. (EST).

“The Mexican League is by far the most popular soccer league among U.S. Latino sports fans, and we're proud to bring them access to their favorite players and teams," Fox Sports en Español executive vice president and general manager David Sternberg said in a prepared statement.

“With more hours of exclusive live sports programming per year than any other Spanish-language network, we look forward to continuing to be the network of choice for advertisers interested in the coveted and hard-to-reach 18-49 male demographic,” he added.
