The International Champions Cup, which will see elite European soccer clubs play games across Europe, the United States, and Singapore, begins Friday, A new content partnership with JUGOtv will serve the soccer-loving Hispanic population in the U.S. during the tournament.

JUGOtv will cover the ICC in both English and Spanish, providing an outlet for native Spanish speakers to watch and listen to the 17 matches that will occur in the U.S., along with supplementary coverage. The company’s San Francisco production studio will create video content to be curated on the International Champions Cup’s digital properties. That content will be available for all games.
