Fox Sports En Espanol's 'Tribuna' will be at Rose Bowl on Saturday

Be sure and bring your Vuvuzela.

Fabforum Fox Sports En Español is bringing “Tribuna,” its nightly soccer news show to the Rose Bowl this Saturday night starting at 6 p.m. as part of cable channel’s coverage of the big grudge match between rival Mexican teams Cruz Azul and Cruz America taking place there at 7 p.m.

Usually originating in Mexico City, “Tribuna” is one of the channel’s highest rated shows in part because it gives passionate soccer fans a chance to sound off via phone calls and emails. The host panel for this Saturday’s show will include Bonifacio Nuñez, a veteran Mexican referee; Eugenio Diaz, a long-time soccer commentator and former coach; Jose Luis Trejo, former Club America coach; Fabian Estay, former midfielder for the Chilean National Team and, wait for it, Pilar Perez, a runway model and soccer fan from Sinaloa.

Since making its debut on Fox Sports En Español in July 2009, “Tribuna” has increased its household audience by 75%.
