CEO of NYCFC, Brad Sims said, “We are excited to have our 2019 matches broadcast in Spanish on ESPN Deportes platforms. We want to give our fans many different ways to follow our Club and this is a terrific alliance that will make our games even more accessible.”

“The Hispanic community in New York is extremely passionate about soccer and is an integral part of our fanbase, so it continues to be a priority for us to provide Spanish-language presentations.
