News in Brief: Minnesota Announces Its Local Broadcast Partner and Much More

by on 3 March 2017

Minnesota United FC confirms My29 will be local broadcast partner

It’s great news for those people in the metro area as any non-nationally broadcast game will be on over-the-air channel My29. In addition to being shown on TV, the broadcast will be simulcast on 1500 ESPN.

For long time fans, this was probably the most exciting piece of news:

“Long-time soccer announcer Chris Lidholm will be the studio host for pre-match, half time and post-match for all matches on 1500 ESPN. Lidholm has been commentating on soccer matches in Minnesota for more than 20 years, and was the club’s television play-by-play announcer from 2010 to 2016.”

It’s great to see Lidholm provided with the opportunity to continue talking about MNUFC on air after being replaced as its play-by-play announcer.

Minnesota names 18-man travel squad for Portland

No real surprises with whom head coach Adrian Heath has brought to Portland. Can’t wait to see this team take the field for the first time as an MLS side.

    I’ll be a greedy metro area dude and say how much I love that the Loons teamed up with My29 instead of FSN. On the not so greedy side I also think this is the best route for the club to get the team out there to the general public, the only barrier to see the games for local kids is a tv and antenna.
