PORTLAND, Ore. -- Minnesota United FC finally revealed Thursday the long-awaited broadcast deal. The club’s first Major League Soccer game a little more than 24 hours away.

While the first two games of the Loons season are nationally televised, local fans can tune in to Ch. 29 on TV and KSTP-AM 1500 on radio starting March 18 when the team plays at Colorado Rapids.

Additionally, play-by-play commentator Callum Williams and color commentator Kyndra de St. Aubin will call United’s season opener at 8:30 p.m. Friday at Portland via a one-time radio broadcast on KTMY-FM 107.1 FM. The game will air on FS1.

The March 12 home opener against Atlanta United is on ESPN2.

United announced its commentating trio of Williams, de St. Aubin and former player Jamie Watson as sideline reporter back in mid-January but has had a broadcast deal in the works for awhile.

Ch. 29 broadcast all of United’s games last season in the North American Soccer League, while KSTP-AM represents the first radio partnership in the club’s history.

Chris Lidholm, United’s TV play-by-play announcer from 2010-16, will act as the in-studio host for prematch, halftime and postmatch on KSTP-AM.
