Warner Bros. Discovery Sports announced its coverage plans for the upcoming Allstate Continental Clásico. The inaugural game features the United States men’s national team facing bitter rivals Mexico. Created as an annual fixture to give both sides a guaranteed highly-competitive match, the fixture ensures the two teams face each at least once a year.
The newly formed Warner Bros. Discovery Sports signed an eight-year deal with U.S. Soccer last year. Because of this agreement, TBS and HBO Max will handle broadcasting of the game on Wednesday, April 19. Extensive pregame coverage is set to start on 9:30PM ET on HBO Max. The game will then also become available on TBS beginning at 10:00PM ET. However, the match will officially kick off at 10:22PM ET.
