YES To Televise 20 NYCFC Matches During Inaugural Season

The YES Network will televise 20 New York City FC matches during the club's inaugural 2015 Major League Soccer season.

The match schedule kicks off on Saturday, March 22 at 4 p.m. (ET), with NYCFC visiting Colorado.

Most of the telecasts will air on YES on Saturdays. The team's remaining 14 matches will air nationally on Univision and Fox services and ESPN2, as part of MLS's new rights deal.

All of the NYCFC matches will air live on YES, save for the club's April 11 game, which will be delayed until after  YES completes its coverage of the New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox battle.

The NYCFC-Philadelphia Union game that day will begin airing on the regional sports network around 5 p.m., with Fox Sports Go streaming the match when it begins at 4 p.m.

All of the team's games will be streamed live on the Fox Sports Go app to authenticated YES video customers. At this juncture, YES has streaming contracts with Cablevision and Time Warner Cable.


YES will air a special season-opening pre-game show at 3:30 pm  on March 21, ahead of the Colorado match.
