Over the course of one month we will be providing extensive coverage from two continents, presenting 78 matches during the day and in the evening, and starring 36 teams with the best players in the world.”

On the digital front, all 26 matches, in addition to the pre-game programming, will stream live via the Telemundo Deportes app. Telemundo Deportes’ digital platforms will also complement the television coverage with additional, exclusive short- and long-form content.
