World Cup on Nashville's TeleFutura Channel 42 in June; party at Ibiza tonight

TeleFutura, Channel 42, Nashville’s only Spanish language TV Station is excited to announce that it will broadcasting live games and highlight shows from this June’s soccer World Cup.

TeleFutura, Channel 42’s General Manager Susana Pae is delighted that the world’s biggest sporting event will be available to Nashville’s TeleFutura Channel 42 viewers. “This is a massive sporting event and so many of our viewers are soccer fans that we are very happy to be able to bring them live games, highlights and special preview programs from the World Cup in Germany.”
The soccer World Cup is the biggest televised sporting event in the World. Host nation Germany kicks off the tournament with a game against Costa Rica on June 9 and then it’s a contest for supremacy among the top 32 soccer nations in the world including the USA, Mexico, Paraguay, Brasil, Argentina, England, Portugal, Spain, Ecuador, Italy and more.

The World Cup takes place every four years and is of enormous interest to Hispanics in the USA. The 2002 World Cup Final was watched by the largest household audience share in the history of Spanish- language television. Spanish language TV’s coverage of the 2002 World Cup reached more viewers than ABC, ESPN and ESPN2 combined. The 2002 World Cup Mexico-U.S. game attracted more Hispanic viewers than all sporting events broadcast that year — including the 2002 Super Bowl and all NBA Finals games. The World Cup is quite simply the Superbowl for Hispanics.

Because of the time difference between Germany and the United States most games will take place in the morning or early in the afternoon, Nashville time. To cater for those unable to see the games during the work day, TeleFutura, Channel 42 will broadcast the best matches of the day in primetime beginning on June 9.

Channel 42 will be announcing full details of their coverage and advertising specials on April 12 at Club Ibiza where they will host their first ever World Cup soccer party for an invited audience.

Says Inga Chamberlain, General Sales Manager for TeleFutura, Channel 42. “We have teamed up with Carlos Moncayo, owner of Club Ibiza and Cezar Contreras of Deportes Americas sports store to present a soccer party- we’ll have free beer, food, soccer prizes and contests and we’ll be making some special announcements about World Cup month on TeleFutura, Channel 42. This is a wonderful advertising opportunity for businesses targeting Hispanic consumers. TeleFutura, Channel 42 is currently the only Spanish-language TV channel in Nashville accepting local commercials and we will have our biggest audiences ever for the World Cup.”

Telefutura, Channel 42 first began broadcasting in February 2004 and is the only local Spanish language TV station in Nashville. Channel 42 features first- class family entertainment programming that includes original Latin American talk shows, news briefs, variety shows, soap operas, movies, sports, and local programming.
