You'll be forgiven for thinking that it might be Saturday.
Eleven MLS teams are in action Wednesday night, as three league games, a U.S. Open Cup match, a Canadian championship final and an international club friendly all highlight the schedule. Here's the lineup for the night:
8 p.m. – MLS Direct Kick/MatchDay Live – New York Red Bulls vs. Colorado Rapids
8 p.m. – Rogers Sportsnet One (Canada)/Stream on Sportsnet.ca – Toronto FC vs. Vancouver Whitecaps (Canadian championship second leg, tied 1-1)

10 p.m. – Stream on PortlandTimbers.com – Portland Timbers vs. Ajax Amsterdam (friendly)

Any streams for NYRB?
It’s HD on directv
Why couldn’t they have done this sooner?
they run every league game, sometime you’ll have a blackout for the local team (depending on your market) but it’s worth it, i paid 60$ for it two seasons ago, and they havent charged me again for it for some odd reason, great investment
What does Direct Kick run per month?
Not to be a snob, but it is not HD. Would rather watch on my computer for free.
I’d happily pay for HD, though. Make it happen MLS.
If US Soccer wanted to develop young players and build the league bigger, you’d figure that they would show as many matches as possible on TV.
Direct Kick is a great bargain, folks. I’ll shill for that every day.
The Dynamo game is on our regional Fox sports channel, FOX Sports Houston. Obviously something similar for LA.
NYRB 1 – 0 COL
NYRB 1 – 1 COL
In Colorado it’s on Altitude, free tv.
Blue Valley Complex in Overland Park, Kansas.
GOLTV has a Colombian League quarterfinal at 9:45pm ET.
FOX Deportes has a Copa Libertadores semifinal at 8:45pm ET.
ESPN Deportes has a 4 Nations Cup match in the afternoon.
Toronto vs Vancouver will be streamed worldwide by SportsNet.ca at
Rogers Sportsnet ONE is the rightsholder in Canada.
(The post above is incorrect. TSN2 does not have the rights.)
What stadium are they playing in?
Yeah seriously. If I wanted to live in China, I’d move to China.
And streams have been very rare lately, thank you very much US Government
red bulls colorado is on MSG plus for those that get it…
nothing on fox soccer or ESPN, perhaps the spanish stations?
Timbers vs Ajax will be streaming live on the Timber’s website. SKC vs New England will also be streaming on the SKC website. AFAIK none of the other matches are being televised nationally.
Yeah. The TV info for these would have been helpful. I have cable and DK but I’m not sure that a friendly or USOC would be televised anywhere. Please advise.
any of these nationally televised?
FINALLY….a freaking home game for KC! They won’t lose this one with their fans finally getting a chance to see a game live. Besides, NE has said they sent a reserve heavy team. Assuming we will be a pushover in a home game is not a good idea…..
