Nearly 50,000 doses of the Chinese Vaccine Sinovac arrived in Uruguay for administered to all actors in Copa America, which will take place next June in Argentina and Colombia. Vaccination will not be mandatory. The 50,000 doses of the Chinese Anti-Covid Vaccine SINOVAC, intended to immunize players, coaches and referees for the American Copa (June 13 - 10 July), arrived Wednesday in Uruguay.

Remember when Fox Sports had a ton of soccer rights? Yeah, those were the days. It’s been a steady drain in recent years, however, with Fox losing the UEFA Champions League and Europa League to Turner (who bailed a season and a half into their three-year deal) and the FA Cup and Bundesliga to ESPN+.

But on Tuesday, Fox actually added some more English-language soccer rights to their portfolio, which includes MLS (for now, anyway), Concacaf Gold Cup, and FIFA’s main package consisting of the World Cup, Women’s World Cup, and various other tournaments.

Fox has acquired the English-language rights to a variety of CONMEBOL events starting this summer, including both the men’s and women’s Copa America, per the Washington Post’s Steven Goff.

Oversight agency finds `deficiencies’ in Chicago police raid

  Oversight agency finds `deficiencies’ in Chicago police raid CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago’s civilian police oversight agency announced Thursday it has completed a 16-month investigation into a wrongful 2019 raid during which a woman was forced to stand naked and handcuffed. The Civilian Office of Police Accountability says it found nearly 100 allegations of misconduct by about a dozen officers who wrongly raided the residence of social worker Anjanette Young. According to COPA, although Young was naked when officers broke into her apartment, she was immediately handcuffed.

The Sports Business Journal broke down the full array of rights included in the deal, including…

  • The men’s Copa America in 2021 and 2024
  • The women’s Copa America in 2022 (which will also serve as World Cup qualifying), 2024, and 2026
  • Olympics qualifiers (both men and women) in 2024

Of note: the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup are *not* included, as fubo picked those up in April.

Hey! It’s stuff! Better yet, this summer’s Copa America ends the day that the Gold Cup begins, so there won’t be overlap between the two events. And given the time zone differences, there won’t be overlap with ESPN’s coverage of UEFA Euro.

It's a constant distraction from the task at hand, nagging you about other things we need to do (or have already done).

I’d be curious what the audience (and the rights fee) for these events look like, but this addition does make Fox’s soccer strategy seem more clear. Given all the international rights the network holds, they’re clearly working to dominate the summer (except when it comes to the 2022 World Cup, thanks to FIFA’s corruption), when live sports are at a premium. Yes, Fox got shut out of the NHL and doesn’t have a lot going on in the winter aside from college basketball, but at least they’re in good shape in the summer and fall.
