The tournament will feature worldwide stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Alexis Sánchez, Arturo Vidal, Chicharito and Carlos Vela.

The ConfeCup will be the sole content of GOL’s afternoon and evening slot until the final is played on 2 July.

In addition to broadcasting the games live, the channel will air pre- and post-game shows with journalists Felipe del Campo, Gemma Soler and Fermín Rodríguez, and football experts Toni Padilla, Alain Valnegri, Aitor Lagunas, Ramiro Martín and Alberto Edjogo.

Through this move, Mediapro intends to continue its successful football strategy deployed over the past season. Despite being one of the newest channels in Spain’s FTA scene, GOL has managed to compete with the leading networks thanks to La Liga and Copa del Rey programming.
