NBC taking over MLS television rights

Recommended Posts

Starting in January, NBC and Versus (soon to be renamed "NBC Sports Network") will be broadcasting MLS and select US Men's National Team matches:

Basically, NBC will air a small handful of regular season matches each week, and will also have some playoff matches. Versus will handle the bulk of the broadcasting.

While we here in Union-land have been getting matches on the local ABC affiliate (last season) and on CSN Philly (this year), it'll be the first time in almost 10 years that there will be nationwide airing of matches on an English-language network.

I don't think this would be happening if they didn't consider this "real soccer", as one commentator suggests, LOL!
