Based on early indications, here is what we are seeing so far on ESPN & ESPN2 as far as the WCQ calendar ..I had mentioned this a few months ago that ESPN will go after the US game @Mexico. Based on ESPN advance Soccer schedule, ESPN has scheduled a WCQ for March 26 on ESPN on prime-time. So, it is pretty safe to assume that ESPN is planning and anticipating to show that game live. There will be more games down the road added to the schedule. MARCH 22nd US vs Costa Rica live on ESPN (10:00 PM EST) March 26th US vs. Mexico scheduled at 9:00 pm (EST)... Although, the time has changed to 10:30 pm (EST)...It appears that ESPN will pick-up this game...ESPN is willing to pay the money for this game because it will get record-breaking WCQ ratings for a US game. I'm expecting 1.7-2.2 million viewers for this game. Expect some major hype around this game. ESPN2 schedule... FEB 6th ESPN2 has scheduled a WCQ game on prime-time at 9:30 pm (EST). The heading says WCQ, and the game will be preceded by a 30-minute Studio show under the heading of International soccer Pre-Match. (As an FY1, ESPN2 will air Germany vs. France friendly at 2:55 pm EST on the same date) Mexico vs. Jamaica (TBC) ?...The only game that matches that time is the Mexico vs. Jamaica that happens, then it means that ESPN might be willing to go after Mexico WCQ games in English... I doubt this is a typo or just the fact their site was not updated. But, a Mexico WCQ will be the first major showing on a English network. March 22nd: (European WCQ) Spain vs. Finland @ 3:55 PM (EST) March 26th Spain vs. France @ 3:55 PM (EST) The rest of the US games will be announced later on with the actual times and network. We know the remaining WCQ home games will be on ESPN/ESPN2....We will see most of them on ESPN. This will be the first time that ESPN is showcasing WCQ over ESPN2. THE US vs. Mexico home leg will be on ESPN as well. if the races stays tight by fall, expect some 2-2.5 million viewers for the 2nd leg of this match.
