With every national team match, U.S. Soccer wants the television broadcast to reach the widest audience possible. However, the worldwide television rights to each CONCACAF World Cup qualifying match are the property of the hosting nation, meaning the hosting nation may distribute those rights at its discretion.
In regards to the U.S. Men’s National Team’s match against Honduras on October 10, the rights are owned by the Honduras federation, which chose to sell the U.S. television rights, in both English and Spanish, to a company which opted to broadcast via closed circuit feed only. As a result, the match will not be televised by any network or cable channel.
While U.S. Soccer would prefer the match be more accessible to fans, we have no broadcast rights in this instance. However, we still wish to assist our fans as much as possible in their efforts to view the match and support the team.
Below is a list of Official U.S. Soccer Bars that have confirmed they will be showing the match, along with a link to other establishments also showing the match. Please note that we will continue to update this list as we receive more information.
Fans will also be able to follow the match on ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker, as well as twitter.com/ussoccer.
We appreciate your understanding. Most of all, we value the continued support that means so much to our players as they attempt to complete the task of clinching a spot in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
