He called four consecutive Women’s World Cups on ESPN, spanning from 1995 to 2007. His most famous assignment dates back to the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup™ Final at the Rose Bowl when the U.S. Women’s National Team lifted the trophy against China in a memorable shootout victory. That same year, he was also the play-by-play announcer for the UEFA Champions League Final, in which David Beckham’s Manchester United won the title.

With NBC, Dellacamera covered three Olympic Games from 2004-2012 and was the lead play-by-play men’s and women’s soccer announcer in 2004 and 2008.

On the club level, Dellacamera has lent his commentary to the Philadelphia Union as well as many other MLS broadcasts on the FOX Sports family of networks, ESPN/ABC, and Comcast SportsNet.
