The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) announced today the expanded agreement with FOX Soccer that will add five more CONCACAF competitions to the broadcaster’s lineup in the United States.

The additions include the 2013 CONCACAF Men’s Under-17 and Under-20 Championships, the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 and Under-20 Championships and 2015 CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifying.

Concacaf-Email-Header“Our expanded relationship with FOX Soccer in the United States is a tangible example of the growing popularity that our competitions are experiencing within our region“, said the President of CONCACAF, Jeffrey Webb. “We are hopeful that this comprehensive coverage model will serve as the benchmark for future years.”

“We are thrilled to add five different and unique CONCACAF competitions to FOX Soccer beginning this month,” said David Nathanson, Executive Vice President and General Manager of FOX Soccer. “Not only can viewers follow the U.S. Women for another exhilarating quest for a seventh consecutive FIFA World Cup appearance, but they’re also able to witness many of the region’s emerging young stars.”

First up for FOX Soccer is the CONCACAF Men’s Under-20 Championship in Puebla, Mexico, with live coverage that begins Monday, February 18 (6:30-9:00 PM EST).

These additions, along with the CONCACAF Champions League and 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup scheduled later this year, establish FOX Soccer as the preeminent U.S. destination for all of CONCACAF’s competitions.
