Entravision to bring 2015 Copa Oro and Copa America soccer events to U.S. radio audiences

 

Entravision Communications Corporation today announced that radio broadcasts of the 2015 CONCACAF Copa Oro and CONMEBOL Copa America Tournaments will be broadcast live on 16 Entravision radio stations in 15 markets across the United Statesfrom June 12, 2015 through July 26, 2015. These games are part of a comprehensive rights agreement with Futbol de Primera providing Entravision with the radio broadcast rights to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Following the enormous ratings success of the 2014 FIFA World Cup radio broadcasts, which delivered as much as a 30 share in Hispanic Men 18 to 49 years of age, Entravision is in a unique position to deliver live match broadcasts on its radio stations and offer extensive digital and mobile coverage through real-time updates, news and special soccer programming content. The success of Entravision’s extensive coverage is reflected in its ratings performance, which in part highlights the significant cultural relevance of soccer, and particularly “La Copa Mundial” to the U.S. Latino community.

“Soccer is an integral part of Latino culture and we are thrilled to provide our audiences with premiere coverage of these marquee tournaments and connect advertisers with soccer’s most passionate fans,” said Mario M. Carrera, Entravision’s Chief Revenue Officer. “Our extensive broadcasts of tournaments including ‘La Copa Mundial’ have generated an overwhelming response and a loyal following across our television, radio and digital properties. Entravision is proud to offer a multi-platform experience to audiences across the country to engage with these matches, and looks forward to bringing these exciting events to our audiences.”
