Available now through December on Canela Deportes, the soccer-themed content will include documentaries, magazine shows and Canela’s first original sports show – Qatar Al Dia.

Qatar Al Dia, in partnership with La Gambeta, will feature analysis on matches, commentary on current standings, images from each match and fan color from Doha. It will also feature former Argentine player, Bruno Marioni, (Liga MX champion with Pumas in 2007) as an expert analyst.

“The World Cup is an event that cuts across all language, economic and country of origin segments of the Hispanic population, it’s a huge part of the Latino culture,” said Felipe Osorio, VP of Canela Deportes. “The content lineup we have created has something for everyone from up to minute news to the history of the competition and a wonderful series on the Mexican National Team.”
