Rob Stone Named Prime-Time Studio Host for FIFA Women’s World Cup™ 2015

fox-sports-logoVeteran Anchors Live From Spectacular Vancouver Locale

Los Angeles — FOX Sports’ lead soccer studio host Rob Stone has been officially tabbed as the prime-time studio host for the network’s unprecedented coverage of FIFA Women’s World Cup™ 2015 in Canada later this year.  The announcement was made today by David Neal, executive producer for FOX Sports’ FIFA Women’s World Cup™ coverage.

“Rob is an exceptional studio host with a deep understanding of international soccer, so he is the perfect choice to anchor our Women’s World Cup coverage in prime time,” Neal said. “An event like this is similar to an Olympics, with many moving parts, and excellent hosts are smart, personable and have a little traffic cop inside them. Rob brings those attributes to the job every day.”

Stone anchors FOX Sports’ studio shows, including pregame, halftime and postgame coverage, and other FIFA Women’s World Cup™ 2015 related programming throughout the month-long tournament from the network’s state-of-the-art two-story studio on picturesque Coal Harbor in Vancouver.  The former Division I soccer player, who joined FOX Sports from ESPN in January 2012, takes on the most high-profile assignment of his career to-date as the prime time studio host of this summer’s Women’s World Cup.  Stone has hosted FOX Sports’ coverage of the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and other top soccer leagues in Europe, in addition to hosting college football and college basketball studio programming. Stone is set to work with a team of FOX Sports soccer analysts to be announced at a later date.

“Covering a massive global tournament in this role is what few in our industry get the opportunity to do, and I am honored that FOX Sports has entrusted this responsibility to me,” Stone said. “I passionately care about this sport and am excited to get started, especially following the excitement we saw during last summer’s World Cup.”

FOX Sports is planning the most expansive multi-platform coverage ever of the FIFA Women’s World Cup™, including an unprecedented 16 matches airing live on FOX broadcast network when the tournament commences in Canada this June.  FOX Sports televises all 52 games in the expanded tournament from six cities across Canada between June 6 and July 5, live on FOX; FOX Sports 1, America’s fastest growing sports network; and FOX Sports 2.  Digitally, all games are available on tablets and mobile devices via the FOX Sports GO app and online at www.FOXSportsGO.com.  No broadcast network has ever televised 16 FIFA Women’s or Men’s World Cup matches, and the 2015 event marks the first time since 2003 that any FIFA Women’s World Cup™ matches are scheduled for over-the-air broadcast in the U.S.  Combining games with anticipated pregame, postgame and complementary programming, FOX Sports is expected to provide almost 200 hours of coverage from FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015™.  Coverage begins with reports in AMERICA’S PREGAME and FOX SPORTS LIVE, Thursday, June 4, a preview show on Friday, June 5 and Group Stage matches on Saturday, June 6.

Last May, FOX Sports 1 reached an eight-year, multi-platform media rights agreement with Major League Soccer (MLS) marking the league’s return to FOX Sports in 2015 after a four-year absence.

Nine of the MLS’ 15 US-based teams appear on FOX Sports 1 in the season’s first four weeks.  The Red Bulls, Sounders and Orlando City FC, one of two new MLS teams this season, boasting Brazilian superstar Kaka, lead all clubs with six appearances, followed by the defending MLS Cup Champion and star-studded LA Galaxy with English superstar Steven Gerrard, first-year entrant New York City FC featuring Spain’s all-time leading scorer David Villa, Philadelphia and Portland, who each appear five times.

Orlando City FC makes their first FOX Sports 1 appearance on April 26 against Toronto FC (7:00 PM ET) in the season’s second doubleheader.  The nightcap boasts the Pacific Northwest rivalry between Clint Dempsey’s Sounders and the Portland Timbers and (9:30 PM ET).  These two teams have at each other again on June 28 in front of the Portland faithful.  The channel’s final doubleheader on May 24 features Philadelphia Union-Red Bulls (5:00 PM ET) and Orlando City-San Jose Earthquakes at Levi’s Stadium (7:00 PM ET).

This season, MLS and its broadcast partners, including FOX Sports 1, introduce flex scheduling on the penultimate weekend of the regular season which allows the league and its media partners to decide the most impactful matches to telecast as the season draws to a close.

In addition to the flex scheduling, MLS also unveils its new “Decision Day” scheduling format on the last day of the regular season.  On Sunday, Oct. 25, all five games in each conference are scheduled to be played at the same time, with Eastern Conference matches kicking-off at 5:00 PM ET and Western Conference games beginning at 7:00 PM ET.  FOX Sports 1 is slated to televise an Eastern Conference match.

FOX Sports 1 and ESPN divide MLS CUP PLAYOFFS matches (outside of two games televised by Univision), and alternate televising the MLS CUP and AT&T MLS ALL-STAR GAME.  Television plans for 2015 are expected at a later date.

All MLS games are simulcast on Spanish language network, FOX Deportes, and streaming on FOX Sports GO in Spanish. All matches on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2 are available to customers of participating pay-TV providers via the FOX Sports GO and FOX Soccer 2Go apps, and on the web through FOXSportsGO.com.  FOX Sports GO is currently available for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire tablets and Fire phones and select Windows devices.  Fans can download the mobile app for free from the iTunes App Store, Google Play, Amazon App Store and Windows Store.

Premier League Live Studio Coverage to Originate From Downtown Phoenix During Super Bowl Week

STAMFORD, Conn. – Jan. 7, 2015 – Third-place Manchester United host fourth-place Southampton this Sunday, Jan. 11, at 11 a.m. ET on NBCSN, highlighting NBC Sports Group’s Premier League coverage for the first weekend action of 2015. NBC Sports Group’s lead Premier League play-by-play announcer Arlo White calls the match, joined by former Manchester United player and assistant coach Phil Neville, at Old Trafford. Former English footballer and BBC Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker and analyst Graeme Le Saux host on-site studio coverage.

Just over halfway through the 2014-15 Premier League season, Premier League Live’s Rebecca LoweRobbie Earle, Kyle Martino and Robbie Mustoe look back on the first half of the season and what to expect going forward:

Rebecca Lowe: “The first half of this season has been, as it always is, riddled with storylines: Liverpool’s poor start; Chelsea’s moment of appearing invincible and Tottenham’s hard-to-decipher progression; whilst lower down it’s been about which club held its nerve long enough before firing their manager. Now that the managerial merry-go-round is going into top gear, expect plenty more drama as the clubs trying to stave off relegation get desperate. At the top, it had looked a done deal for Chelsea, but they’ve stumbled, and Jose Mourinho is as grumpy as I’ve seen him! Impossible to call from here on in…and that’s why we’re all addicted to the Premier League!”

Robbie Earle: “Once again, the league is proving to be the most challenging in the world. Manchester United now have, supposedly, one of the best managers in game, yet he’s had to use all of his strengths to get them back into the top four. It’s always laced with unique interest when you get two teams like West Ham and Southampton in and around the top four, knocking out some of the usual suspects. The biggest thing is less than six weeks ago, people were suggesting Chelsea were going to run away with the title. Manchester City closed a nine-point gap, and now the two teams are only separated by alphabetical order – same wins, draws, losses and goals. I can’t remember a time when that’s happened in the past. Looking down the league, there’s probably seven or eight teams that all believe they can stay up, but all have a fear of possibly going down. Usually, at this stage you’ll have one team that are almost away from the rest – one gone, two more places for relegation – we’re not in that situation.”

Kyle Martino: “2014 was a year of surprise. Not the Chelsea-Manchester City two-horse race, but most things below them. Manchester United and Southampton breaking into the top four, and in Merseyside, both Liverpool and Everton well below their high-water mark from this time last year, have been a head scratchers for most. Fortunately, 2015 will answer a lot of our pending questions.”

Robbie Mustoe: “A famous British TV series ‘Tales of the Unexpected’ could have been written for what we’ve seen in the Premier League so far this season. From disappointing and underachieving Arsenal, Liverpool, and Everton to the fantastically overachieving Southampton and West Ham, this season has illustrated what an unpredictable league it can be. Don’t expect a late twist in the plot though, the main characters will shine through for the season finale.”

2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup Group Stages Set On FOX Sports 1

fox-sports-1-logoUSWNT Forward Alex Morgan: It’s Definitely the Group of Death

Former USWNT Defender Heather Mitts: To Be the Best, You Have To Beat the Best

U.S. Soccer star Alex Morgan joined as a guest analyst and shared her reaction to the draw:

“It’s pretty unbelievable. We knew this was going to happen. That’s why when you saw the reaction from the rest of the team in Brazil, they were laughing, because we knew it. We got the toughest countries in all of the pots, the strongest seeds. It’s definitely the group of death. We can’t count out any team.”

Former U.S. Soccer defender and three-time Olympic Gold medalist Heather Mitts added her thoughts on the group:

“To be the best, you have to beat the best. This group of death is very fitting for us. We always struggle against Sweden and Australia. I do think we will beat them, but Sweden is going to be a very tough match. Pia Sundhage (head coach of Sweden and former head coach of USWNT) knows how our team plays and she will be prepared.”

USWNT head coach Jill Ellis joined the show from Ottawa post-draw:

“Overall it’s going to be a physically demanding group and I think that serves us well because we are deep. We are going to have to play very well to get out of there. I feel confident in the next six months to get this team primed and ready.”

Legendary 1999 USWNT head coach Tony DiCicco also weighed in on-site from Ottawa:

“This is the worst case scenario for the USA because they are playing the best team from every pot.”

Two-time World Cup winner with Germany, Ariane Hingst, thinks Germany will come out on top of its group:

“No disrespect to the other teams, but you can easily say this is a really easy group for Germany to play. Ivory Coast and Netherlands are new names on the pitch. Norway is always hard to play, but Germany definitely has to come out as position one in this group. No doubt about that.”

Retired Mexican defender Monica Gonzalez said the Mexican Women’s National Team has to win next summer:

“What Mexico is looking to do at the very minimum is get a win in this group. Mexico has never gotten a win in a major tournament neither in the World Cup or the Olympics.”

England Women’s National Team all-time leading goal scorer Kelly Smith offered her thoughts on her former team’s match-ups:

“I think coach Mark Sampson will be quite happy with this group. He has brought in a lot of youth, vibrant players that want to do well. The team is in a good place, but we have a lot of work to do. Obviously you don’t want to lose the opening game against France, that will be tough.”

All 52 matches of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 are carried live on FOX and FOX Sports 1. Coverage kicks off on June 6 at Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium with hosts Canada, while the USWNT begin its campaign on June 8. The final takes place on July 5 in Vancouver.
