DishLATINO joins Copa Univision, the fastest growing amateur soccer tournament in the U.S., to bring family fun, entertainment and soccer to Miamis Hispanic community this weekend. Copa Univision will take place on May 18-19, 2013 at the Amelia Earhart Park in Hialeah, Fla.
Soccer is a passion for us at DishLATINO just as it is throughout the Latino community, said Alfredo Rodriguez, DISHs vice president of Latino marketing. Through DishLATINO, weve been able to bring Latino families together to watch soccer in front of their TVs, and were excited to join Copa Univision in creating a playing experience they can pass down to the younger generations.
Univision Miami Vice President and General Manager Mike Rodriguez added, Univision Miami is thrilled to work with DishLATINO to help bring the Copa Univision soccer tournament to South Florida, an event that helps encourage our youth to be physically active and enjoy soccer as well as other family friendly activities.
Copa Univision tournament festivities includes activities such as live music, a kids corner with magicians and bounce houses, an activity center and contests with prizes. Local television station WLTV-DT and Univision Radio personalities will be in attendance to interact with tournament-goers. The DishLATINO team will be rooting for players, showcasing free product demos and promoting the companys latest sports viewing features on the Hopper. A 14-foot inflatable Hopper will also be on-site for family photo opportunities.
In addition to Miami, DishLATINO is partnering with Copa Univision for tournaments in Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City this summer and early fall.
