    I will keep this as a running info thread of CL matches that will be aired in East Asia.

    The following matches for next week will be shown on ESPN in East Asia. All times are Taiwan time. Japan and Korea are one hour ahead of Taiwan. Hong Kong and China are the same time as is Singapore.

    Oct. 1 08:00 - Olympiakos Piraeus FC v. Juventus FC

    Oct. 1 11:30 - Deportivo La Coruna v. PSV Eindhoven

    Oct. 1 18:00 - Lokomotiv Moscow v. Arsenal

    Oct. 2 11:30 - FC Porto v. Real Madrid CF

    Oct. 3 01:30 - VFB Stuttgart v. Manchester United

    This information is true for Taiwan. Check the following website ( for your area.

    Ummm... I don't understand why ESPN Taiwan has inferior coverage to the regular ESPN Asia (for Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, China and other East Asian countries).

    In ESPN Asia:

    0230 Olympiakos x Juventus (Live)
    0445 Locomotive Moscow x Arsenal
    1800 Deportivo la Coruna x PSV*

    0230 Real Madrid x Porto (Live)
    0445 Celta de Vigo x AC Milan
    1800 Stuttgart x Man U*

    * also live on Star Sports

    In other words, Taiwan show one fewer game (Celta x AC Milan). Worse yet, Taiwan doesn't show the 4-hour Champions League Extra, which shows 15 minutes highlights of every game.

    ESPN sucks eggs. Too much Champions League soccer, too little NFL.

    Because Ludahai is the only one in Taiwan watching them. :)

    Yes, ESPN sucks in NFL.... wait until Super Bowl when their commentators are more interested in NFL Europe than the game. "Oh yeah.... that XXXX played for Barcelona Dragon.... he was so good in World Bowl Vll".

    Unfortunately, this isn't far from the truth. Soccer is also competing with the Major League Baseball playoffs right now, something that is sure to get far better ratings in Taiwan than soccer. This really is a baseball county and not a soccer one.
