Sounders FC will have five nat’l broadcasts on FOX Soccer

MLS announced a one-year extension of its TV deal with the (sometimes blurry) FOX Soccer Channel this morning. Sounders FC got five of the 31-game deal, including four at home, which are broadcast nationally.

Friday, March 25 — vs. Houston Dynamo, 7 p.m.

Friday, April 22 — at Colorado Rapids, 6:30 p.m.

Saturday, June 11 — vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC, 7 p.m.

Saturday, July 16 — vs. Colorado Rapids, 1 p.m.

Saturday, October 15 — vs. San Jose Earthquakes, 7:30 p.m.

All but the Vancouver game will be broadcast exclusively on FSC.

Changes to Seattle’s schedule include moving the Houston game up a day to March 25 (already announced) and changing the kickoff in the Oct. 15 game against San Jose to 7:30 p.m. (previously it was 7 p.m.).

FOX Soccer has been a broadcast partner with MLS since 2003.

Sounders FC will also have five games on ESPN this season. All the others not broadcast nationally will be carried by KING (Ch. 5) or KONG (Ch. 6) with Arlo White on the call. Every match will be available on 97.3 KIRO FM radio.
