Univision Interactive details FIFA coverage


Univision Interactive Media, the digital division of Univision Communications, announced two additions to its online and mobile content network: a brand new soccer site, www.UnivisionFutbol.com, and an enhanced Deportes (Sports) site. These dynamic new properties are kicking off with nonstop coverage of this year’s 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa, including live online streaming of all 64 games.

To meet Hispanics’ unrivaled demand for nonstop, in-depth soccer coverage, UnivisionFutbol.com provides online and mobile access to professional leagues and tournaments worldwide. Paramount among all these is the upcoming FIFA World CupTM. Already, UnivisionFutbol.com is providing the latest news, videos and photos from the tournament, and dedicated blogs and social media fan pages to engage users. Once the games begin, fans in the U.S. and Puerto Rico will be able to watch all games live online for free.

Enthusiasts will also access real time game stats, interviews with players and coaches, exclusive behind-the-scenes video of soccer stars, and Univision sports show coverage. FIFA World Cup and worldwide soccer coverage from UnivisionFutbol.com is also available on the Univision Fútbol App, downloadable for iPhone and iPod touch. Launched in April 2010, it has become one of the most popular free sports apps in the Apple App Store. The app will soon be available on Apple’s iPad, and on Blackberry and Android Smartphone platforms.

Broadcasting all of the event’s 64 matches in HD, this summer Univision Comm. will leverage Univision, TeleFutura, Galavisión, Univision.com, Univision Móvil, and Univision On Demand – to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience for its audiences with nearly 900 hours of comprehensive coverage. The World Cup on Univision will begin airing live on Friday, 6/11 at 8am ET.
