With a reach of 21 million homes and a digital presence of 17 million followers across all platforms, FOX Deportes will be the official broadcast partner in the United States for Santos Laguna’s home matches beginning this weekend when los Guerreros host Chivas at Territorio Santos Modelo.
The Los Angeles-based media giant, which is one of the top Spanish-language media partners in the United States for the county’s major league sports, is prepared to broadcast the team’s home games in Spanish and English through the Deportes and FS1 platforms.
"We are especially excited to announce that for the first time in our history, FOX Deportes will exclusively produce these Liga MX games in Spanish and English simultaneously,” said FOX Deportes Vice President of production Orlando Silver.
“As part of this new strategy, FOX Deportes will be in charge of both broadcasts, and Santos will be the first partner to benefit from this new workflow. We know how many Mexican soccer and Santos fans there are in the United States. Forget about borders. We want to unite both countries through Santos Laguna.”
Santos’ Spanish-language broadcasts will include Giselle Zarur, Alejandra Delgadillo, Yanira Gianola, Martín “Pulpo” Zuñiga, John Laguna, Raoul Ortiz, Claudio Suarez, and Mariano Trujillo, who helped los Guerreros to their second title in 2001.
For FS1, Adrian Garcia-Marquez will narrate and Rodolfo Landeros will provide color commentary.
Production will include action-packed pre-game and post-game shows from Torreón, offering international viewers a flavor of “La Laguna” seasoned with the passion of Liga MX, which in 2018 was the most watched soccer league in the United States.
Both programs will air live from Territorio Santos Modelo, which celebrates 10 years in November of this year and has been recognized as one of the most complete and advanced sports and entertainment venues in Latin America.
On Friday, FOX Deportes will broadcast live from TSM during the Manny Pacquiao-Keith Thurman weigh-in in Las Vegas, and on Sunday, will air a two-hour pre-game show from outside of Estadio Corona before the 6:45pm kick off against Chivas.
