Interesting announcement from Comcast over the weekend: Comcast-Spectacor's Front Row Marketing subsidiary will handle the advertising sales and marketing of the 2012 French Super Cup (Trophée des Champions), which will be played at Red Bull Arena in New Jersey on July 28, one week before the start of the 2012-2013 Ligue 1 season. http://aol.sportingnews.com/soccer/...-will-open-season-with-game-at-red-bull-arena The 2011-2012 champion of Ligue 1 will play the winner of the 2011-2012 Coupe de France. (The 2011 French Super Cup was played at Stade Saputo in Montreal.) == Note that Paris Saint-Germain is currently level with Montpellier at the top of the Ligue 1 table. PSG is owned by the Qatar Investment Authority. One of the semifinalists in the Coupe de France is Ajaccio, which features Mexican National Team goalkeeper Guillermo "Memo" Ochoa. Ochoa is the star of several TV commercials targeting the U.S. Hispanic market, notably for Allstate, Home Depot, and Powerade. One would expect the match to be shown in the U.S. on Telemundo and Comcast-operated regional sports networks such as SNY. == Is Comcast angling to be the launch partner of beIN Sports USA? Is Telemundo angling for the U.S. rights to the Barcelona-Real Madrid clasicos in La Liga BBVA next season? Inquiring minds want to know.
