On Aug. 10, 2011, Major League Soccer and the NBC Sports Group announced a three-year media rights agreement, beginning at the start of the 2012 MLS season and calling for 45 MLS games and four US men’s national team contests, to be televised live across both NBC and NBC Sports Network – formerly known as VERSUS – each season.
Each year, NBC will broadcast two regular-season MLS games, two playoff games and two appearances by the US men’s national team. The NBC Sports Network will televise 38 regular-season games, three playoff games and two US men’s national team matches.
In 2006, ESPN bought the rights to broadcast Major League Soccer games and other related events under an eight-year deal that will conclude in 2014.
ESPN and ESPN2 will broadcast 26 regular-season games as well as three playoff games a year, including the MLS All-Star Game and MLS Cup. The deal also allows televised coverage of the first round of the MLS SuperDraft.
