2019 Sports Emmys: Telemundo Deportes’ Eli Velazquez Applauds Team Effort for 2018 FIFA World Cup Production

For many nations across the globe, the FIFA World Cup is familiar territory. For Telemundo Deportes, the quadrennial event was the network’s first steps into the international limelight on the grandest stage. Telemundo became the go-to destination for Hispanic soccer fans and put on a stellar performance of the tournament from both linear and digital fronts.

At the 2019 Sports Emmys, Eli Velazquez, EVP, sports content, NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises, stopped by to chat with SVG’s Kristian Hernandez about winning the award for Outstanding Live Sports Coverage in Spanish, his team’s commitment of producing an exceptional broadcast for its global audience, and how this accomplishment can ignite an even greater effort at the upcoming FIFA Women’s World Cup in France and the Copa América in Brazil.
