[TELEVISION WATCH] Longtime soccer announcer JP Dellacamera and former MLS midfielder Kyle Martino will team up Fox Soccer Channel's broadcast of MLS games in 2011, while former U.S. internationals Eric Wynalda and Christopher Sullivan will host the pre-game, halftime and post-game show.

Dellacamera spent the last three seasons as the play-by-play announcer on ESPN's MLS telecasts. He has done soccer for the last 30 years, covering many of the biggest events in U.S. history, including the 1989 World Cup qualifier between the USA and Trinidad & Tobago and the 1999 Women's World Cup final.

Dellacamera, who also serves as the current play-by-play voice for the Philadelphia Union, will call the play-by-play for all 14 Friday night-exclusive matches on FSC.

Martino, the 2002 MLS Rookie of the Year, replaces Sullivan as the color analyst on FSC's broadcasts. He hosted the short-lived "Soccer Talk Live" show on FSC and currently co-hosts "Super Sunday +."

Wynalda and Sullivan can be see on the studio shows FSC airs around its UEFA Champions League broadcasts.

Brian Dunseth, who did play-by-play on FSC's MLS telecasts in 2010, will round out the broadcast team as a sideline commentator.

Additional play-by-play analysts for FOX Soccer’s Saturday MLS coverage include Mark Rogandino, Allen Hopkins, Dave Johnson and Keith Bleyer. Hopkins has returned to Fox after four years at ESPN.

MLS coverage on FSC begins March 19 when the defending champion Colorado Rapids host the Portland Timbers.

FSC will broadcast 31 regular-season MLS matches, including 14 Friday night matches and 17 on Saturday nights.
