U-20 World Cup: Global broadcast rights holders

2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup: Global broadcast rights holders

May 18, 2017 By Angela Asante
Fox Sports, DIRECTV, TSN, beIN Sports Arabia, Eurosport and SuperSport are among the major broadcasters for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

The 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup welcomes 504 players grouped into 24 teams from the six confederations. Europe and Asia are the most represented continents with five countries each whereas CAF, CONCACAF and CONMEBOL enter host country Korea Republic with four representatives each. Oceania is the underdog with New Zealand and minnows Vanuatu looking to make an impact. 

The U.S., like Mexico, is making its 15th appearance at the Under 20 World Cup. That’s more than South Korea (14th), Uruguay (14th), and as many as favorites Argentina. This year, defending champions Serbia and runners-up Brazil are both absent from the contest.

Here’s a look at the groups’ structure:

  • Group A: South Korea, Guinea, Argentina, England
  • Group B: Venezuela, Germany, Vanuatu, Mexico
  • Group C: Zambia, Portugal, Iran, Costa Rica
  • Group D: South Africa, Japan, Italy, Uruguay
  • Group E: France, Honduras, Vietnam, New Zealand
  • Group F: Ecuador, United States, Saudi Arabia, Senegal

Which networks are broadcasting the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup matches?

In the United States, soccer fans can watch the FIFA U-20 World Cup live on TV or stream it on mobile thanks to Fox Sports and fuboTV. Telemundo Deportes will also provide coverage in Spanish. 

In South America, three networks have broadcast rights. Tigo Sports (Paraguay) and TyC Sports (Argentina) have joined DIRECTV to offer viewers glimpses of World Football’s next generation of superstars. 

In Africa, SuperSport Select 2, SuperSports 4, SuperSport 5, and SupeSport 9 will combine for coverage as the continent will be behind Guinea, Senegal, South Africa, and Zambia to go one better than in the last edition where Mali beat their Senegalese counterparts to clinch bronze. 

In the Middle East, count on beIN Sports Arabia whereas coverage remains very limited in other parts of Asia. In Europe, Eurosport is the haven for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup while TSN has you covered in Canada. 

The tournament commences on May 20 and ends on June 11, 2017. For geo-localized kick-off times and live broadcast listings of each fixture, visit our FIFA Under 20 World Cup competition page
