Q13 FOX & JOEtv remain your home for Seattle Sounders FC in 2017 (full schedule)

SEATTLE — The Seattle Sounder FC this week announced the full broadcast schedule for the 2017 Major League Soccer Season. Regionally, Q13 FOX and JOEtv are once again the official home of Sounders FC.

“Q13 FOX and JOEtv are thrilled to once again bring the excitement of the Seattle Sounders to our television audience,” said Pam Pearson, SVP / General Manager of Q13 FOX and JOEtv. “As fans and partners, we look forward to another incredible season with the reigning MLS champions!”

Sounders FC’s partnership with Q13 FOX and JOEtv includes a 30-minute pre-match show and 30-minute post-match wrap-up following each locally-telecast contest, two feature-length Sounders FC specials during the 2017 season and a weekly segment during Friday’s “Q It Up” sportscast throughout the year.

Eight 2017 Sounders FC matches, including a nationally-televised bout against Portland on May 27, are being carried by Q13 FOX, with the remaining 12 regional fixtures slated for JOEtv.

The network’s first Sounders FC special – a 60-minute Return of the Champions feature – is slated to air first on JOEtv on Thursday, March 2 at 8:00 p.m. PT, followed by a re-air on Sunday, March 5 at 5:00 p.m. PT.

“We are thrilled to continue these relationships with our incredible broadcast partners, as their commitment enables Sounders fans to follow their team closely throughout the season with a variety of options,” said Sounders FC Chief Operating Officer Bart Wiley. “We are also pleased to continue with such an experienced group of broadcast talent across our many platforms, offering fans a diverse array of analysis and insight surrounding the team. We truly believe our club has one of the most thorough broadcast lineups in the league, and we’re eager for the season to begin Saturday in Houston.”

Keith Costigan and Matt Johnson reprise their play-by-play roles. Jackie Montgomery returns as the host of pre-match, halftime and post-match coverage, alongside broadcast analysts Taylor Graham, Marcus Hahnemann, Steve Zakuani and Fewing.
