Hola V Team! On today’s edition of Entérate con Verizon, host Jennifer Marin brings us onto the field to experience fútbol like never before.

2022 Copa Alianza

Verizon understands how important soccer is for Latinos across the globe, which is why we partnered with Alianza de Futbol – the leading national organization dedicated to the development of amateur Hispanic soccer in the U.S – to give customers access to events and experiences like never before.

Jennifer visited Randall’s Island Park in New York – one of the 10 cities hosting tournaments for the 2022 Copa Alianza – which created the opportunity for players to show off their skills to college and professional scouts. We also offered customers the chance to relax and recharge inside our Verizon tent where we provided charging stations, hydration stations, insight on our latest Verizon plans and more.

We also caught up with legendary defensive midfielder Pavel Pardo, who talked about the importance of supporting the development of future Latino generations. He even taught Jennifer a few soccer tricks.

The 2022 Copa Alianza tour is set to continue through November 2022.

Watch and save.

During the episode, we also reminded V Teamers that Verizon customers never have to miss a minute of their favorite sport and can save on their minutes too.

Customers can stream their favorite LaLiga games on ESPN+, with streaming options included with select 5G Unlimited plans.

Plus, with Verizon Home Internet, now starting at just $25 per month with Auto Pay and one of our premium 5G mobile plans, who doesn’t like to watch and save. All Verizon Home Internet plans have no hidden fees, no annual contracts, no extra charges for required equipment, and now the price is guaranteed for up to four years with Fios Gigabit Connection.

Speaking of saving, with the new Welcome Unlimited plan, customers can access the network America relies on, starting at $30 a line for a family of four – it’s our best unlimited price ever.

We also have a new offer for our prepaid customers. We’re offering the magic of Disney+ for six months when they activate or upgrade to Prepaid Unlimited plans. Customers can watch family favorites like Encanto, Coco and Elena of Avalor.

Making V Team dreams come true.

We started the show in New York, and closed it out with a big surprise for Los Angeles area-based retail manager, Jose Sanchez, who received a virtual visit from none other than Mexican national team soccer legend Jorge Campos, one of the best goalkeepers of his generation!
