Peru Public Broadcaster to Air World Cup Matches

LIMA – Peru’s President Martin Vizcarra said public broadcasting network TV Peru would be televising the matches of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, an event that marks the national squad’s return to soccer’s biggest stage following a 36-year drought.

Vizcarra said the state-run National Institute of Radio and Television of Peru had signed an agreement with private network Latina de Television, owner of the World Cup broadcast rights in the country, to ensure the signal reaches all parts of the Andean nation.

Latina’s signal reaches around 12 million people, according to the president, who said the accord would expand that coverage to 17 million more people in remote areas of the country.

Around 20 million Peruvians have been born since the start of the 1980s and were very young children or not even alive yet when Peru last qualified for a World Cup finals in 1982, Vizcarra recalled.

“We’re all very excited. It’ll now be possible to see these games via Latina and TV Peru’s signal. So we’re extremely happy because Peruvians in all corners of the country will be able to enjoy the matches,” the president said.

Peru has been drawn into the World Cup’s Group C and will take on Denmark (June 16), France (June 21) and Australia (June 26) in the round-robin stage.

The World Cup will kick off on Thursday with a match between host Russia and Saudi Arabia at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
