Olympic Soccer on TV

Yeah, right! Don't hold your breath!

CBC and TSN are sharing the Olympic broadcasts in Canada. There are no Canadians in the soccer tournaments, and there will be sparse TV coverage of them, apart from the daily all-sport highlight packages.

Complete schedule of matches, with results Note: this is NOT the broadcast schedule!

TSN's broadcast schedule includes only the following matches:

Aug. 21 Men's QF's
Aug. 24 Men's SF's
Aug. 26 Women's Gold Medal match
Aug. 27 Men's Bronze Medal match
Aug. 28 Men's Gold Medal match

Just how much of each match will actually be shown is not clear. In some cases, a time slot has been allocated to be shared with other events.

CBC's broadcast schedule (.pdf file) appears to have no soccer coverage at all.

I would not mind watching those games but lets face it after the Euro it will be kinda of a let down.

In all honesty, I do hate the fact that we, North Americans, have to go thru that crap each time before any tourney !

Here in the States we're blessed with lots of Olympic action .... I believe we can watch every single game, without missing a beat..Some (MOST) will be broadcast in spanish, but who in this day and age listens to off - the wall announcers ???

Some of us have access to some US channels, which will be broadcasting some of the matches.

CNBC, MSNBC, Telemundo, Gol TV, and perhaps NBC itself will be carrying some of the matches.

For listings, go to SoccerTV.com.

Caution: Due to rights issues, cable blackouts may be in effect in Canada.

I don't know, and TSN isn't saying.

I am guessing they will show highlights of all four matches, since they will be operating on a long tape delay.

Incidentally, the CBC French network olympic soccer schedule indicates that they will be covering the Bronze and Gold medal matches for both men's and women's competition (TSN doesn't mention the women's bronze medal match in their schedule).

They also promise highlights of the men's and women's semifinals on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.

You may find the French language broadcast times more convenient. The EDT times are:

August 26 - 12:30 to 5:00 pm - Women's Bronze and Gold
August 27 - 12:30 to 5:00 pm - Men's Bronze
August 28 - 6:00 am to 12:00 noon - Men's Gold

Check the website for the listings in your time zone.
