The US network will add the 2015 Women’s World Cup qualifiers, the 2013 Men’s U17 and U20 Championships, and the 2014 Women’s U17 and U20 Championships to its existing coverage of the Gold Cup and Concacaf Champions League, which it signed a deal for in August.

“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 US 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.”

“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“, added Concacaf president Jeffrey Webb.

“We are hopeful that this comprehensive coverage model will serve as the benchmark for future years.”
