Starting last March, this year’s games promises the longest season in league history. Why not? They are blustering 34 games each for the 19 league teams. Other than that, all, yes definitely all, will be televised this time. So who’s at the hem of broadcasting it? According to sources, US network partners such as ESPN, NBC and Univision will do the job of bringing the games into your home.
Statistics also supports this with 89 matches that will be shown on TV, and 30 games featuring Canadian clubs will be broadcasted on TSN/TSN2 in English and RDS/RDS2 in French.
Starting last March 10, the season is bound to run until October 28, with the 2012 MLS Cup Final on December 1.
Soccer fans should be delighted more with the guarantee that all of the 323 games can be watched live on television. Sounds great huh? Yes, MLS continuously satisfies the public demand to have the games be accessible through their TVs at home. This brings us to the notion that in all their capabilities, MLS will surely make sure that every game be delivered via TV in the most realistic way it can possibly be. Now, you don’t have to be in the middle of a rowdy crowd just to watch your favourite teams playing on field.
Bringing the highly-watched games online, MLS agreed to let Univision Deportes do the work. According to them, the online site will feature in-depth coverage of the games so as to inform the soccer fans more about what is going on. Video game highlights will also be included for the benefit of those who missed some parts of the games each day. Statistics of who is winning and who is losing will also be posted. The same website also allows fans to access real-time updates, scores and statistics through downloading some applications on their Smartphones.
Other than those updates brought to your TV and even phones, MLS also brought out some highlights that every fan should not miss.
Employees-sensitive as they are, MLS set most of games (83 % at that) during weekends and holidays, which you should find delighting since this means only one thing – you will not miss so much of the games. This might also mean that you can watch games more comfortably, as compared to sneaking out of work just to take a quick peek on what is happening inside MLS.
Not done with satisfying the soccer fans, MLS set April 28 as a special day. Why? Nine MLS games are scheduled to happen, instead of the usual eight games only. This record-breaking day should not be missed, definitely.
Moreover, MLS made sure to it that most of the games’ schedules will not happen at FIFA’s set schedules. Only a few games will occur on selected FIFA dates.
Having read these, the next thing for you to do is mark the MLS 2012 Schedule on your calendars, and make sure you won’t miss even just one game of this high-flying season.
