Bradley’s TFC debut moved to national TV broadcast

Michael Bradley’s first match back in Major League Soccer will be aired on national television after all.

Bradley’s 2014 debut with Toronto FC, on March 15 in Seattle against the Sounders, will now air on NBC Sports Network after a schedule adjustment, Toronto FC announced on Monday.

TFC is on a bye for the opening week of the season, but will kick off the new season at CenturyLink Field on March 15.

The TV schedule change is the first of what could be several changes for TFC, which hadn’t been scheduled to appear on national television in the United States this season, but with the team adding stars Bradley and Jermain DeFoe, Toronto FC is looking more and more like a marketable team that could wind up on national television a few times this season.

What do you think of this development? Hoping TFC has more matches added to the national TV schedule?

  1. Hmmm. I was under the impression that a national broadcast would cover the entire nation via a broadcast network. That means a broadcast over free TV. This is a cable broadcast, not a national broadcast. There are an estimated 44 percent of TV viewers in America that do not have cable.

    If NBC is so proud, why not make it a truly national broadcast?

  2. why did you leave Roma?

    You could have joined a club in Spain or France.

    you were THE CHOSEN 1. but u chased the $$$$$ and it will ultimately leave u lacking

  3. This will indeed be an interesting early-season match-up. Would really love to see it on a grass field as well, rather than the Ping-Pong effect on artificial turf — but will take what I can get at this point.

    Less than one month to opening day!

    That’s a tasty match-up if I’ve ever seen one!

  5. The new galaxy of MLS, too bad red bull hasn’t done anything like this. Finally galaxy, sounders have competition for national attention.
    I also can’t wait what nycfc,miami and orlando do with their money magic, oh and maybe the seattle seahawks will pressure seattle to play attractive soccer and even promote mls with seattlr home national televised games.
