2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup Opening Round TV Schedule- every game on Fox Networks


Beginning tomorrow night, the FIFA U-20 comes to the networks of Fox and the Spanish networks of NBC. For the first time in the US history of the U-20 World Cup every game is being televised. Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, and Fox Soccer Plus will televise all the games in English. NBC Universo and Telemundo will televise select games in Spanish, while NBC Deportes will stream every game online through NBC Live Extra. 

Fox will have local teams broadcasting the USA and Mexico games from the Los Angeles studio. All other games will use the international feed.

Fox will produce a brief 5 to 10 minute pregame show and a Halftime Show for each match from their Los Angeles studios before turning it over to those international feed announcers.

The announcers for the international feed aren't posted online anywhere that I'm aware of, but I will add them in as soon as I learn which announcer is calling each game. Even without that info, I feel it is important to post the schedule and the networks the games will air on so fans have the chance to tune in.

Over on the Spanish side NBC will utilize the same broadcasters they use for the English Premier League for their broadcasts- Andrés Cantor and Sammy Sadovnik. They will be joined by the 3-time top Mexican scorer Carlos Hermosillo and former Chivas de Guadalajara star Manuel Sol. NBC has confirmed they will also utilize special correspondents in New Zealand: Ana Jurka, Kaziro Aoyama, Leti Coo, Daniela Rodriguez, and Francisco Cuevas.

For games not shown on NBCU or Telemundo, NBC Deportes will utilize the Spanish world feed. These games will be streamed online live on NBC Deportes Live Extra. Just like NBC Live Extra, NBC Deportes Live Extra requires viewer authentication to watch the matches.

Please note that the NBCU listings will only show which games they are airing live. They will be airing additional matches on a tape delayed basis. Also, the times listed for these matches are the start times. NBCU and Telemundo coverage will actually begin 12 minutes before the listed start time.

Here we go. Only the first round schedule will be posted at this time. All times listed are Eastern Daylight Time.
