Sounders To Increase Capacity For Five Games In '14; Team Strikes New TV Deal
Published December 11, 2013
YOUR LOCAL LISTINGS: Mayers noted Seattle-based KCPQ-Fox announced that it will "broadcast Sounders FC regular season games next season," with some games also on KZJO-MYT. Sounders games previously had aired on KING-NBC and KONG-TV. KCPQ and KZJO will "have 21 games and the other 13 will be on national television." KCPQ also will "air two 30-minute specials on the team all season, as opposed to the regular Sounders FC Weekly show during the previous arrangement." Also, because the Sounders produce the game broadcasts, the new TV deal "isn't expected to impact the status of announcers Ross Fletcher and Kasey Keller" (SEATTLETIMES.com, 12/10).
