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.

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.
