Watch Sounders FC on Television
Supporters of the Rave Green are set to continue enjoying a robust array of ways to follow the team, as Seattle maintains its relationships with regional television and radio partners in 2020.
JOEtv remains the dedicated home of Sounders FC for all regional broadcasts following another successful campaign of league-leading television ratings. Of the club’s 34 MLS regular season matches, 20 are being carried on JOEtv throughout most of Washington, with 14 of Seattle’s games airing on national television via FOX Sports 1 and ESPN. In addition to televising all home and away Sounders FC matches to in-market fans for non-nationally televised broadcasts, JOEtv continues to provide both a 30-minute pre-match show and 30-minute post-match wrap-up following each contest. Q13 FOX is also airing two feature-length Sounders FC specials during the 2020 season, in addition to profiling the team during the weekly "Q It Up" sportscast each Friday throughout the year, shown on both Q13 FOX and JOEtv.
The home of Sounders FC's Spanish-language television programming remains Sinclair Broadcast Group, which is set to air a select number of MLS match telecasts on Univision Seattle (KUNS-TV), with the specific match schedule to be released at a later date. Sounders FC Fútbol en Vivo is again hosted by Univision-Seattle's play-by-play voice Jaime Mendez with analyst Diego Arrioja.
