Telemundo kicked off its one-year countdown to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, with a preview of its coverage plans as the exclusive Spanish-language home of the largest sporting event in the world. 

The network is preparing to present the most ambitious multimedia coverage in Spanish-language history, with all 64 matches broadcast live, including 56 games airing on Telemundo and eight on Universo.

All games will also be available on a live stream with authentication, complemented by the most extensive on-the-ground reporting ever seen. In addition, Telemundo plans to create compelling ancillary content driven by its world-class storytelling and engagement specially tailored for digital and social platforms.

“Qatar will offer unique opportunities for us to bring home the excitement and drama of the 2022 World Cup to our fans across the country. From its location and the proximity of the venues to the gathering of fans from around the world, we’ll be able to bring viewers the most intimate and engaging experience ever seen across all platforms,” said Ray Warren, President of Telemundo Deportes.

Telemundo’s production will feature the largest onsite presence ever. For the first time, there will be an in-venue presence for all 64 games, leveraging the proximity of the stadiums with commentators calling multiple matches in one day.

Telemundo’s presentation studio will be located at the center of the cultural Souq Wagif Marketplace featuring multiple backdrop views and content opportunities, not only for the dual view main studio but also from a compound position overlooking the modern Doha Skyline. There will be additional locations throughout Doha to ensure the most immersive cultural and event experience for the audience.

Soccer Hall of Famer and six-time Emmy award-winner Andrés Cantor will return as chief commentator marking his 12th World Cup and his 10th as play-by-play announcer.
