Minnesota United’s broadcast schedule for the new season that kicks off on March 1 in Portland is out: Seven games will televised nationally, 27 will be broadcast locally on FSN channels.
The opener against the Timbers is a national FS1 broadcast, 6:30 p.m. Twin Cities time. The team’s Official Watch Party will be held at Brit’s Pub in downtown Minneapolis that evening.
There’ll be a watch party at the Dubliner for the first FSN broadcast, at San Jose on March 7 with kick at 7 p.m.
The March 15 home opener – my colleague Sid Hartman’s 100th birthday, btw – against New York Red Bulls at 6 pm (presented by Star Tribune!) is an FS1 national broadcast, too.
Play-by-play announcer Callum Williams and analyst Kyndra de St. Aubin are back in the broadcast booth, but sideline reporter Jamie Watson, sadly, is gone to call expansion team Nashville’s games. A new sideline reporter is TBD.
All FSN games will include the 30-minute “Loons Live” pre- and postgame shows and will be streamed live on FOX Sports Go. Fourteen of the 27 FSN gams will be on FSN Plus and one streamed only online on Fox Sports Go (that’s a tax day April 15 Wednesday game at Houston).
Also, 25 games will be simulcast on Fox Sports Wisconsin to extend United’s broadcast reach east into Minnesota’s neighboring state as well as west and south into the Dakotas and northern Iowa.
