FOX Sports and Sporting Kansas City announced a multi-year agreement on Tuesday that will see FOX Sports Kansas City become the exclusive television home of Sporting KC beginning in 2017.
“Partnering with FOX Sports allows us to expand our viewership throughout the Midwest and deliver a world-class broadcast to all of our fans across the region,” Sporting KC President Jake Reid said. “FOX Sports is a fantastic partner of MLS at the national level, and we are excited to team up with them here in Kansas City, as well.”
All Sporting KC matches not nationally televised during the 2017 MLS season will air on FOX Sports Kansas City, reaching fans in Kansas, Nebraska and western Missouri.
Select Sporting Kansas City matches will also air on FOX Sports Midwest, reaching additional viewers in Missouri and Iowa — including the St. Louis, Des Moines, Springfield and Columbia markets.
Sports Radio 810 WHB will also continue as the official radio partner of Sporting Kansas City through the 2016 season. The station -- with a listening audience that includes the states of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and Oklahoma - has carried Sporting Kansas City matches each of the last four seasons.
Since its formation in 1999, Sports Radio 810 WHB has grown to become one of the largest and most listened to sports radio stations in the country. The station first hosted the Kansas City Soccer Show in 2010 and now airs a weekly Sporting KC Show in addition to The Final Whistle postgame show.
All 2016 MLS matches will be broadcast on La Gran D 1340 AM. Owned by the Reyes Media Group, La Gran D 1340 AM has served as the exclusive Spanish radio home of Sporting Kansas City for the past eight seasons.
