Arlo White will return as guest commentator for Saturday’s game

Former Sounders FC broadcaster Arlo White will return to the booth Saturday as a guest commentator for Seattle’s home game against the San Jose Earthquakes.

White and Ross Fletcher will split duties on the television and radio coverage; White will call the first half on KIRO 97.3 FM, Fletcher will call the first half on Q-13 FOX, and they will switch for the second half.

Kasey Keller will serve as color commentary for TV for both halves.

“I’m absolutely thrilled that the club has asked me back to do a game. It’s the perfect way for me to round off a memorable season,” White said in a news release. “I can’t wait to get to Seattle and experience another great Saturday night at CenturyLink Field. ┬áIt’s a big game against San Jose, and working with Kasey and Ross will be terrific.”

Here is some more background from the release:

Currently the lead commentator for NBC Sports’ coverage of the Barclays Premier League, White spent two seasons as the Voice of Sounders FC, providing play-by-play commentary for the 2010 and 2011 MLS seasons. He joined NBC in 2012 as the lead commentator for MLS, and handled the play-by-play duties for the network’s first season of Premier League coverage.
