Coverage kicks off on June 14th with the opening ceremony and the beginning of group play, and will include the live broadcast of all three scheduled matches for the Mexico National Team in group play, including Mexico playing the World Cup defending champion Germany on Sunday, June 17th at 8 am PT.  Coverage will be provided by some of the top play-by-play soccer announcers in the world, including legendary commentator Andres Cantor, with his signature “GOOOOOLLLLL!” which is popular around the world.  Every match will include both a live 30-minute pre- and post-game coverage broadcast.

“Latinos live and breathe soccer and it is by far the number one sport among our listeners. We’re excited to be part of the World Cup event and our ability to provide extensive coverage to our local communities through our radio stations. This global soccer tournament is one of the most recognized sporting events in the world and provides advertisers with a premier opportunity to connect with our audience,” said Jeffery A. Liberman, President and Chief Operating Officer of Entravision.
