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%.
