Hope was key in making the USWNT one of the most successful teams in world soccer having helped lead the nation to a World Cup title in 2015 and two Olympic gold medals in 2008 and 2012. Hope set records that will be almost impossible to beat with the greatest number of appearances, starts, wins and shut-outs for a goalkeeper.

“Hope is an exceptional athlete and inspiring personality to have on our network,” said Antonio Briceño, beIN SPORTS Deputy Managing Director for the U.S. and Canada. “We are confident that Hope will be a great addition to the beIN SPORTS team and are thrilled soccer fans across North America will have the opportunity to watch what one of the top goalkeepers in the world has to say about the sport on ‘Weekend Winners’.”

“beIN SPORTS has been a leader in elevating the level of soccer broadcasting here in North America and its coverage of the game is second to none,” said Solo. “I’m excited to join this world-class team and bring fans a new perspective."
