It’s been a big week for Major League Soccer as ESPN, FOX, and Univision inked a new TV deal, and Jurgen Klinnsman released his 30-man preliminary World Cup roster.
On Monday, Major League Soccer made a major announcement about the future of MLS on TV. MLS has officially signed a new television and media rights partnership with ESPN, FOX Sports, and Univision. All of these channels will televise the US Men’s and Women’s National Team games, as well as MLS matches through 2022. The break-down of matches for the USNT will go something like this; ESPN and FOX Sports will split Men’s National Team broadcast package of approximately 10 games per year, and will share the schedule of Women’s National Team games. Univision broadcast all of the US Men’s National Team games, plus a minimum of four Women’s National Team matches each year throughout the duration of the deal.
