Television and Radio
In regional television, the club’s home remains FOX 13 (KCPQ-Channel 13) and FOX 13+ (KZJO-Channel 22), seeing FOX 13+ return as the primary television home for regional broadcasts of the Rave Green throughout Western Washington for the fifth straight season. All home and away Sounders FC matches for non-nationally televised broadcasts are available to in-market fans, with FOX 13 carrying four contests and FOX 13+ carrying the remainder of the schedule. FOX 13 and FOX 13+ continue to provide both a 30-minute pre-match show and 30-minute post-match wrap-up following each contest.
Prime Video continues as Seattle’s official video streaming home in 2022, following a landmark agreement in 2020 that saw Sounders FC become the first professional soccer club to team up with the streaming service, as well as just the second sports franchise for which Prime Video secured regional broadcast rights (following Major League Baseball’s New York Yankees). FOX 13 is also carrying several Sounders FC specials during the 2022 season, including a Sounders FC Matchday program airing on FOX 13+ at 4:00 p.m. Sunday, February 27 ahead of the club’s opening MLS Regular Season match vs. Nashville SC. Additionally, FOX 13 is profiling the team during its weekly Seattle Sports Live sportscast each Friday throughout the year, shown on both FOX 13 and FOX 13+. Dating back to the first year of the partnership between the Rave Green and KCPQ in 2014, Sounders FC’s regional broadcast ratings have led Major League Soccer each season, a hallmark of the continuing relationship between the two organizations.
Prime Video is the exclusive streaming destination for the Rave Green, with all regionally televised Sounders FC MLS matches available on Prime Video to fans with a Prime membership throughout the entire state of Washington at no additional cost. Sounders FC’s regional broadcast territory extends throughout the entirety of Washington State – inclusive of the traditional Seattle-Tacoma-Everett television DMA and key population centers like Spokane, Yakima, Tri-Cities and Vancouver, Washington – allowing fans everywhere in the Evergreen State the opportunity to watch the Rave Green via Prime Video. Stream from the web or using the Prime Video app on your smartphone, tablet, set-top box, game console, or select smart TV.
New in 2022, fans accessing Sounders FC matches through Prime Video can watch the games in native 1080p / full HD resolution streaming content, the highest standard in the broadcasting and streaming industry.
Additionally, fans accessing the Rave Green through Prime Video can find club-specific content available via the dedicated Sounders FC team page, which houses live and archived regional Sounders FC matches, highlights, player interviews, press conferences and more.
In radio, Sounders FC continues its flagship partnership with iHeartMedia Seattle for the fifth-consecutive season. All home and away Sounders FC MLS matches are being carried on Sports Radio 950 KJR AM, including a dedicated 30-minute pregame and 30-minute postgame show surrounding each contest. Additionally, the station is continuing its hour-long Sounders Weekly program, hosted by Jackson Felts and airing at 7:00 p.m. PT every Tuesday evening throughout the season, while Head Coach Brian Schmetzer joins Dave “Softy” Mahler and Dick Fain every Tuesday evening live at 5:45 p.m. PT.
Introduced last season and continuing in 2022, match action audio for regionally televised games is being simulcast between television and radio, with radio listeners able to take advantage of the exceptional crew that the Rave Green has in Costigan, Keller and Zakuani. For nationally televised matches, the trio is calling Sounders FC games exclusively for the radio broadcast. As mentioned above, dedicated pregame and postgame shows continue to bracket every radio broadcast, with Jackson Felts leading those efforts and working alongside Pete Fewing, Danny Jackson and Diego Arrioja.
