Wolves to air first Spanish language match commentary on Wednesday

Wolves will air the club’s first ever live Spanish language match commentary on Wednesday night when Chelsea visit Molineux.

The club have secured well-respected Mexican commentator Juan Carlos Zúñiga for Spanish language commentary on the Wolves App and Wolves.co.uk to help engage Wolves’ ever-growing fan base.

Zúñiga, general director at Mexican radio station W Deportes, will be hosting the pre-match show and providing commentary of the full 90 minutes.

The pre-match build-up will feature interviews with Nuno and Wolves players previewing the game, while analysis of the game will be provided at half time and full time.

Zúñiga, a popular and passionate commentator, was Mexico’s voice of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where he covered Mexico games, featuring Raúl Jiménez, to the football-adoring nation and an international audience. 

As well as the World Cup, Zúñiga has covered major sporting events such as the 2014 Olympics Games in Brazil, 2012 in London and the Pan American Games in Guadalajara in 2011.

15 per cent of all Wolves Facebook supporters are Spanish speakers and visits to Wolves.co.uk from Spanish-speaking countries are up 450 per cent on this time last year, so the club are delighted to offer this fresh service.

Speaking before his first Wolves match, Zúñiga said: “I’m honoured to be the first Spanish-language commentator for Wolves’ official channels and have the opportunity to bring Spanish-speaking Wolves supporters closer to the action.

“With promotion to the Premier League and the summer signing of Raúl Jiménez, there is a growing interest in Wolves in South America and their playing style is one which resonates with Latin American football fans.

“I hope lots of supporters will tune in to the match which kicks-off at 1.45pm in Mexico and it will be a service which will continue to grow over time.”

To access the Spanish commentary via the Wolves App, supporters should select live commentary as normal, and then choose the Spanish coverage from the two options.

Supporters should ensure they have the latest update to the Wolves App to access the commentary – this can be downloaded here for apple devices or here for Android devices.

The Chelsea game is one of an initial three Wolves fixtures Zúñiga will be providing commentary for, with the Liverpool and Tottenham fixtures in December also ­­covered.
