Univision Communications is going to cap a big weekend of futbol with its first-ever Spanish- and English-language simulcast coverage with the Liga MX Finals.
As part of its Fin de Semana de Finales (Weekend of Finales) presentation, flagship broadcast channel Univision will air the second leg of the Liga MX Finals between Tijuana and Toluca on Dec. 2 in Spanish, while a separate on-air crew will call the match in English on dedicated sports service Univision Deportes Network live at 6:55 p.m. (ET)
Tijuana, which was promoted to the first division last year and is now shooting for its first title, leads Toluca 2-1 after the first leg, which aired on Univision, on Nov. 29. Toluca is attempting to win its 11th title to equal Guadalajara Chivas record as Mexico’s most decorated club.
The Tijuana-Toluca match will culminate a weekend that will also see Univision Deportes Network cover the FIFA Confederations Cup Draw at 8 a.m. on Saturday Dec. 1 and the 2012 MLS Cup Final, a rematch of last year’s championship between the Houston Dynamo and defending champion LA Galaxy in David Beckham’s last match in the domestic league. TeleFutura and Univision Deportes Network will present the match action, kicking off at 4:55 p.m. that afternoon.
