New York Red Bulls fans, have no fear. Your team has a regional television deal.
The Red Bulls and MSG Networks agreed to a multi-year deal that will ensure that all non-nationally televised matches will be telecast on local stations and in high definition, the club announced on Thursday. MSG has held the broadcast rights to the Red Bulls (and MetroStars) since Major League Soccer's inaugural season and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
MSG had broadcast the team's first two matches this season "on good faith," according to the New York Post, while details of the new deal were being worked out. Steve Cangialosi and Shep Messing will continue to be the broadcast team for the telecasts.
Happy this finally got resolved? Are you a fan of MSG's Red Bulls coverage?
