U.S. defender Geoff Cameron to make NBC broadcasting debut on Sunday
U.S. men's national team and Stoke City defender Geoff Cameron will make his NBC broadcasting debut during CNBC's telecast of Crystal Palace-Liverpool on Sunday, NBC announced Monday.
Cameron, who is currently on international duty with the U.S. in Ireland, will play for Stoke City on Saturday against Burnley before joining play-by-play man Arlo White in the broadcast booth on Sunday at Selhurst Park.
The match will be televised at 8:30 a.m. ET on CNBC.
The Stoke City man isn't the first American player to broadcast Premier League matches for NBC. U.S. men's national team star and Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard agreed to a multi-year contract with NBC this summer to continue broadcasting English Premier League matches in the future. In 2013-14, Howard served as an analyst for seven Premier League games on NBC Sports Network.
Cameron has started four matches for Stoke City this season, including two Premier League matches. The 29-year-old started three matches for the United States at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Stoke City currently sits in ninth in the Premier League table with 15 points. In Stoke's last Premier League match, the club defeated Tottenham 2-1 at White Hart Lane.
After its match against Burnley, Stoke City will travel to Liverpool and Manchester United before hosting Arsenal.
