Fox Sports Announces Fox Broadcast Network To Feature Double Header of MLS Matches for Second Consecutive Year
Fox Sports has announced the Fox broadcast network will feature two MLS matches airing live adjacent to regional NFL broadcasts on Sunday, Sept. 24. Fox Sports’ MLS and NFL presentation features a battle between Atlanta United and the Montreal Impact at brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and a clash between Sporting Kansas City and the LA Galaxy at Children’s Mercy Park.
Live coverage begins at 2:00 p.m. ET when the 2013 MLS Cup champions, Sporting Kansas City, hosts the LA Galaxy. The matchup will be available in both competing teams’ home markets, as well as select additional cities around the country. Those areas without the MLS match will receive a regional NFL broadcast at that time. Soccer fans in markets with the NFL game have the opportunity to watch full coverage of the Sporting KC-Galaxy match live on Fox Sports GO.
Action continues as the Montreal Impact travels to Mercedes-Benz Stadium to face Tata Martino’s Atlanta United at 5:00 p.m. ET. Those areas not receiving the broadcast on television will receive a regional NFL broadcast at that time and can watch the full MLS match on Fox Sports GO. Both MLS matches will also be available in Spanish on Fox Deportes.
This is the second consecutive season Fox Sports showcases a joint MLS and NFL lineup, televising games from the two leagues on the same network at the same time. Originally scheduled kickoff times for the two matches have been updated to align with the Fox broadcast network lineup.
Similar to Fox’s process with regional NFL broadcasts, market assignments for the network’s coverage of the Sept. 24 MLS matches will be made public at a later date. When market assignments are announced, MLSsoccer.com will provide a complete overview of the coverage for both the Sporting Kansas City-LA Galaxy and Atlanta United-Montreal Impact matches.
All Fox soccer matches can be live streamed via Fox Sports GO and Fox Soccer Match Pass. Fox Sports GO is available on FoxSportsGO.com or on the Fox Sports GO app, which can be downloaded from iTunes, Google Play, Amazon App Store and Windows Store. Streaming is also now available on several connected devices, including Apple TV, Android TV, FireTV, Roku, Chromecast and Xbox One.
