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

10:30 p.m. – MLS Direct Kick/MatchDay Live – Los Angeles Galaxy vs. Houston Dynamo

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. The Dynamo game is on our regional Fox sports channel, FOX Sports Houston. Obviously something similar for LA.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…..
