As part of some 200 hours of programing, Telemundo Deportes will kick off coverage of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 next month, the quadrennial competition that serves as a lead-up to soccer's main event, the 2018 World Cup from Russia. NBCUniversal's Spanish-language linear networks will present pre- and post-match fare and live coverage of the eight team, 16-match tournament, starting with the host nation squaring off against New Zealand on June 17 before concluding with the championship match July 2. With coverage originating from Moscow, Kazan, Saint Petersburg and Sochi, Telemundo Deportes' play -- 14 matches on broadcaster Telemundo, two on cable service Universo -- will mark the first time that all Confederations Cup matches will be produced live from venue cities.
