ESPN will again provide live and exclusive televised coverage of South America’s premier club cup competition, the Copa Libertadores – meaning UK fans can see football stars such as Ronaldinho, Luis Fabiano and Alexandre Pato. ESPN also provided coverage of the tournament last season.
ESPN will air a total of 32 games throughout this year’s tournament, starting with the first stage preliminary qualifying rounds as Brazil’s Sao Paulo take on Bolivian outfit Bolívar on January 23rd. ESPN’s schedule of further matches will be announced in due course.
Alongside ESPN’s live games, its coverage of the Copa Libertadores will include repeats of games the following day. The competition joins ESPN’s range of top quality domestic and European club football, including the Barclays Premier League, FA Cup, Serie A, Bundesliga, UEFA Europa League, and more.
