  WHAT:    Barclays Premier League - Fox Sports en Espanol will feature live
           Spanish-language coverage of the most watched sporting league in
           the world on Saturdays and Sundays from August to May.  The
           Barclays Premier League was formed in 1992 with clubs at the top
           of the English football league system and currently consists of
           twenty clubs.  In a total of sixteen seasons, the title has been
           won by only four teams: Manchester United with eleven wins,
           Arsenal with three, Chelsea with two and Blackburn Rovers with
           one.  Manchester United won its 3rd consecutive Premier League
           title in the 2008-2009 season and will be looking to repeat in

           language live coverage of 144 Serie A matches from August to May
           on Saturdays and Sundays.  Established in its current form in
           1929, Serie A is the top division in Italian soccer and consists
           of 20 clubs. Each year, the bottom three clubs in The League
           table are relegated to Serie B. The top two clubs from Serie B
           are then promoted automatically to the Serie A, while the third
           through sixth place clubs enter a promotion playoff for a final
           spot in the Serie A.  Juventus is the most successful team in the
           history of Italian football with twenty seven Serie A titles,
           eleven international titles and is sixth in the world with the
           most international titles recognized by UEFA and FIFA.  In 2009,
           Inter Milan won their 4th consecutive championship title by
           defeating Parma in the last round of the season.
