Football on ABC, ESPN, ESPN+ and ESPN Deportes

ABC, ESPN, ESPN+ and ESPN Deportes to offer wide variety of football games

April 9, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
One of the highlights of the network's coverage will be the first-ever Serie A game being shown on ABC.

The next couple of weeks will be quite interesting for football fans living in the U.S., as all of ESPN's platforms (ABC, ESPN, ESPN+, and ESPN Deportes) combine to give football enthusiasts some of the top games being played in the upcoming days.

For starters, ABC will kick things off by airing the Fiorentina vs Atalanta game on Sunday, April 11, at 2:30 p.m. ET. This game will be the first-ever Serie A game to be televised on ABC, just weeks after the channel aired its first Bundesliga clash. Spanish coverage for that game will be provided by ESPN Deportes. If that was not enough, how about watching the highly anticipated match between Napoli and league leaders Inter Milan on ESPN+? That game will take place on Sunday, April 18 at 2:35 p.m. ET.

English football fans will also have their fair share of entertainment available thanks to ESPN+'s coverage of the FA Cup. The tournament's semi-finals will be available to watch exclusively on this platform live on April 17 (Chelsea vs Manchester City), and April 18 (Leicester vs Southampton).

English football fans will not only be able to watch the FA Cup being played, as ESPN+ will also cover the Carabao Cup final between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. This time, the rivalry between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola could see The Special One denying Pep from a fourth straight EFL Cup title on April 25th at 11:20 a.m. ET. 

One more tournament that will be covered on ESPN's platforms will be none other than the Copa del Rey final, which will feature Lionel Messi's Barcelona against Athletic Club on April 17 at 3:20 p.m. ET. ESPN+ will bring this game to football fans, providing English commentary by Sebastián Salazar and Alejandro Moreno, while Spanish coverage will feature Fernando Palomo in the play-by-play and World Cup winner Mario Kempes as the analyst.

One more domestic cup will be available on ESPNews and ESPN Deportes when the DFB-Pokal semi-finals take place on April 30 at 2:20 p.m. ET. The game between Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig will be available on both English and Spanish language, with Ross Dyer calling the game in English and Fernando Palomo in charge of calling the play-by-play action in Spanish.

Fans will also make a trip to America for the opening weekend of the 2021 MLS season. The 26th season of the North American league will kick off on Sunday with the coverage of the Inter Miami vs LA Galaxy game. The match will feature players such as Blaise Matuidi, Rodolfo Pizarro, and Gonzalo Higuaín for Inter Miami, while the LA Galaxy are set to face the recently created franchise with footballers such as Javier "Chicharito" Hernández, Jonathan Dos Santos, and Sebastian Lletget on the pitch.

ESPN+ will be covering over 350 out-of-market MLS matches, including eight MLS opening weekend games being streamed between April 16 and April 18.

Fans of the Women's National Football Team will also have the chance to watch their favorite players on the pitch, as the current World Cup holders will face France on April 13 in a friendly clash set to take place at Stade Océane in Le Havre, France. Sebastian Salazar will provide the play-by-play commentary, while analyst Julie Foudy will be in charge of all in-game commentaries. The game will be aired on ESPN 2 and via the ESPN App at 3:00 p.m. ET.
