Former U.S. Men’s National Team and current Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Tim Howard will join Turner Sports’ coverage of the UEFA Champions League, the New York Post reports.
As an active player on the Colorado Rapids, the 39-year-old Howard will not be available to work all broadcasts. Howard previously covered the English Premier League games for NBC Sports Network while he was an active player on Everton.
Turner recently outbid previous rights holder Fox Sports for Champions League coverage and will air most of the games on its new B/R Live over-the-top streaming service this fall.
Joining Howard in studio will be Fox Sports’ Kate Abdo and former NBA player Steve Nash, who is a part owner of MLS’ Vancouver Whitecaps and Spanish club Mallorca.
Fox’s Stu Holden is also reportedly in talks to join the coverage.
