Channel-surfing Sounders fans were treated to a few familiar faces this morning.
Coach Sigi Schmid and defender Tyrone Mears were both on Q13 FOX on Thursday as the club and station announced a multi-year extension on the team’s local television deal. This upcoming season, Q13 with air eight Sounders games, affiliate JOEtv will pick up 13 and each will be accompanied by a pre- and post-match show.
The station also dropped hints that former Sounders Marcus Hahnemann and Steve Zakuani will have some role with the broadcast.
Still no updates to the Seattle’s online schedule on exact broadcast dates, but I’ll update as they come.
UPDATE: The Sounders have also announced a separate multi-year partnership with ROOT Sports to carry games regionally.
