MyUTV is the newest home of Major League Soccer, featuring defending MLS Champion Sporting Kansas City. We'll be airing 23 matches on MyUTV, beginning this Saturday, with live coverage of the club's showdown with FC Dallas. The pregame begins at 7:00, and the match starts at 7:30. With over 10,000 youth playing soccer across KELOLAND, Sporting KC believes this is another opportunity to help the sport grow.
"I think the exposure of everyone to the Major League Soccer product is just another part of the puzzle. As people get to have the experience, which is what we really talk about. We have soccer, and yes we are a soccer team, we talk about making it an experience for our fans, and that's why we're sold out every game. We're talking about making it an experience on television as well to try and grow the game and grow the popularity," Sporting KC Executive Vice President -- Operations Chris Wyche said.
In addition to MLS, Sporting KC is currently in the knockout stage of Champions League play, and Wednesday night beat Cruz Azul, 1-0. The second leg of play is next week in Mexico City.
