Major League Soccer on TV

As some of you may know (thats if you have browsed the threads 'Soccer Camps in USA') I am going to apply in september to join MLS Camps next summer to do some coaching.

While doing my coaching courses at the mo I am trying to do as much research as I can to gain knowledge about Major League Soccer league, or soccer in general in the US before applying. Apart from looking at their website I would like to know if anyone can tell me if there are any matches of MLS currently, or going to be shown on TV in the UK?

Any help or direction would be much appreciated.

thanks

Channel 5 do show highlights, very early in the morning, couldn't tell you which day though. You can actually sign up to mlsnet.com and watch most of the games over the internet for a tenner a season.

I was up stupidly early on a Saturday morning a couple of weeks ago and they were showing a fair bit of MLS on Goalissimo - 7am on Channel 4.

Couldn't tell you if it was every week though.

Im out in Florida at the moment, doing camp america. love it, absolutely love it, am made absolutely pea-nuts but the experience is incredible, plus the fact that im living with 4 girls might have something to do with it! The only MLS I can find over here is on a thursday night, they show one live 'soccer' game a week, thats about it on basic cable. the football is shockingly slow and pasionless but its better than watching "so you think you can dance" like the girls like to watch!

I watched the last 15 minutes of the Galaxy v Columbus game earlier this week.

As a game I thought it was OK, but I would love to watch it with English commentators, i.e. one of the Sky/BBC guys.

The American ones just don't seem to sound right.... and get all excited in the wrong places, plus they all try to add their own terminology or "buzz' words.

you may laugh or be confused by their terms of the game and getting things wrong but remember they are still learning about the game.

ESPN 2 shows a live MLS Thursday night game in HD
The Fox Soccer Channel (FSC) shows a live MLS Saturday night game in SD

Hightlights are shown throughout the week on the Fox Soccer Report at 10pm EST on FSC.

FSC is available on Satellite and Cable but it is usually part of an 'extended' package for an extra monthly charge. Some bars and pubs show it.

the last paragraph you wrote, do you mean satellite and cable here in the UK?

I know what you are saying (and I certainly wouldn't say I laugh at them), and yes, they should put an American slant on the way they do commentary, but I don't buy your "still learning the game" comment. If they haven't got it by now, surely they never will.

I would just say, that as a European, I personally find their commentary annoying and misplaced, and contribute nothing to the goal of making the MLS successful as a TV option (which is surely the reason for the whole exercise, this being America).

I would also add, that I think all other major sports here in the US have incredible commentators.... many very much as iconic as the sports/teams themselves.

you're definitely right hedge. espn made a huge mistake last year by trying to convert a well-known baseball guy, Dave O'Brien, into a football commentator during the World Cup. He was outrageously bad.

Some good recent signs though--the commentary team for the US v Mexico game on Sunday was much better, especiially the color guy. And they now have a good englishman on espn, Adrian something.

Still, it is somewhat mysterious why they can't understand when to cheer etc. I know when a steal in baseball matters and when it doesn't, what a double looks liike as opposed to a fly ball off the bat, why a pitcher might throw balls rather than strikes as a way of getting a hitter to chase a bad pitch etc. My sense is that they are not really watching the game, but waiting for something to happen. Hence they don't really see what is happening in front of them.

I wrote on another thread that the Gold Cup Final pulled in twice the ratings of the Stanley Cup Final, and that was only counting Univision, the Spanish channel; plenty more people watched it on Fox Soccer Channel. Some other good signs: ESPN will cover Euro 2008 (that's kind of amazing, when you think about it), and they have an eight-year MLS contract (ratings are on the rise, slowly).

A few things need to happen for soccer here to really take off: a non-white US soccer player needs to become famous (ie Kobe/Jeter famous); ESPN/ABC need to hire a Latino commentator; second-generation Latinos need to switch to supporting the US (this is starting to happen). I see no reason why more big-names won't come to play in the MLS: big money, no media pressure, they can walk around unmolested, high standard of living etc.). If Brazilians can play in Italy and still play for the national side, then Englishman can play in America and play for England.

1. Is Adu (sp?) going to be that guy?

2. That Norbert guy from Argentina that perfected the "Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooal" would do a good job. I've heard him commentate in English, and although not sounding overly confident in it, he knows the game very very well and has good insight, even into European players and teams.

3. I think it will start to happen. Beckham may have opened the door on this one.
