CSN Philly, Comcast Network To Televise 20 Philadelphia Union Matches
Philadelphia Union has added Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia and the Comcast Network as local television partners. CSN Philadelphia and The Comcast Network will join current Union broadcast partner 6abc to air all Philadelphia Union games that are not televised nationally. WPVI-TV/6abc continues in its second season as the Union’s official broadcast partner and will air seven of the team’s 34 total matches this season, while Comcast SportsNet and The Comcast Network will air 20 matches. All matches will be broadcast in HD.
This new partnership also includes a weekly magazine show entitled “State of the Union,” which will air Friday nights throughout the season. Each game telecast will also include a 30-minute pregame show, as well as a special post-game show at select dates throughout the season.
Calling all of the matches will be long-time MLS and ESPN play-by-play commentator JP Dellacamera and former MLS player and current MLS analyst Taylor Twellman. Philadelphia soccer icon Bob Rigby will serve as sideline reporter as well as provide some studio commentary.
