Fox y Telemundo transmitirán el Mundial a partir del 2018

A FIFA official with knowledge of the decision says Fox has won the U.S. television rights for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. Fox was awarded the English-language rights and Telemundo the Spanish-language rights.

The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the decision hasn’t been announced.

The value of the new deals was not disclosed. ESPN and Univision paid a combined $425 million for the existing deal.

Soccer’s governing body made the decision after U.S. networks submitted bids Wednesday and Thursday.
