Fox Soccer's new one-hour nightly newscast, Fox Soccer News, debuts Friday at 10 p.m. ET.

The show replaces Fox Soccer Report as Fox Soccer's nightly soccer roundup, complete with a full conversion to HD, new hosts and for the first time on-the-ground reporters in Britain covering the biggest story lines from the Premier League and European competitions. Late updates will be included in the West Coast edition of the show at 10 p.m. PT.

Fox Soccer News is hosted by Brendan Dunlop, formerly of The Footy Show on Canadian Sports Network, The Score and The Hardcore Footy Show on Hardcore Sports Radio (Sirius XM).

Former UCLA and Canadian women’s national team forward Kara Lang joins Dunlop as studio host.

Scotsman Bobby McMahon moves over from Fox Soccer Report and is joined by former Canadian national team captain Colin Miller and Toronto FC academy director and former MLS and U.S. under-20 head coach Thomas Rongen as analysts.

BEIN SPORT ON DISH. beIN SPORT, the new 24-hour network that is carrying Spain's La Liga, Italy's Serie A and France's Ligue 1, is being carried on DISH Network’s America’s Top 250 (AT250) in English and on DISHLatino packages as beIN SPORT E, a Spanish-language version.

SPONSORSHIP FRONT. U.S. Youth Soccer has signed YoCrunch, the nation’s leading yogurt with mix-in toppings, is an official sponsor. YoCrunch will provide snacking resources, including a snacking guide and team snack list, to players and coaches. Special offers on YoCrunch products and an online soccer game will also be available at USYouthSoccer.org.

WORTH READING ... The New York Times' Richard Sandomir examines the impact high Olympic ratings -- particularly for women's soccer -- might have on NBC Sports Network. “This has exceeded all our predictions,” Jon Miller, president of the NBC Sports Network, said. “There’s a great euphoria with the success these Olympics have generated.” NBCSN has added Major League Soccer to its stable of live programming highlighted by the NHL and Tour de France. Most of the other shows it has added this year are studio or magazine shows. Lazarus hopes the Olympics will boost ratings by 20 percent and "get more people to sample the network.”

    If NBCSC was smart, they would have an on-line presence not tethered to any cable/satellite providers because that's the future. Genx ers are dumping cable and satellite in droves. The millenials will never order cable or satellite. I would gladly pay a small monthly fee to watch all live games (soccer and hockey broadcast etc ) on any platform. HBO should do the same thing. Ala carte is coming, no doubt, just not on cable and satellite. It's a new world order. But cable and satellite don't know it yet.

    the show is terrible ! the report gave you the highlights and some insight without all the extra garbage they have added to this show. the new host has no chemistry with bobby mcmahon and then they throw it over to the new girl who adds nothing but fluff to the show. bring back michelle and eoin and the old fox soccer report. the new show is terrible......

    This new show is absolute garbage. Sure the production values on Fox Soccer Report weren't great, but at least it was aimed at real football fans. Who is this new program aimed at ? The new host Mr. Dunlop is woeful..no human connection with Bobby last night and tonight's effort with Tom (which camera was he looking at?) was pathetic. They're reading a script as if it was a phonebook. As for the girl (?)..what exactly is her role. The camera never shows you her face and her name is not captioned.. It's a total shambles. Bring back Fox Soccer Report.

    Fox Soccer Channel just can't leave well enough alone. This latest gaff might leave me just tuning in for the games and none of the other content. It's a cheesy show with cheesy hosts and poor production value. They were doing well with Bobby, Eoin and the crew. Why change? Going further back, I loved Fox Footbal Fone In and so did many people. But they axed that, too.

    The new format for fox soccer news is horrible. Apparently designed and delivered by people who have no visceral connection with game or it's fans

    This 'fox soccer news' is terrible.. Dunlop has no personality and looks like he fell off the the set of a batman movie..I dont know what the girls role is and the guy Dichio is awful and for an ex footballer hasnt a clue.. take last night for instance..in the everton-newcastle game everton had two good goals dissalowed.. for one Dichio said that the guy should really be scoring and ;we shouldnt even be talking about goalline technology'.. Well mr Dichio for your information it was a goal because it was at least a foot over the liine.. For the other he said it was the 'correct' decision as Fellaini was offside!! obviously he does not understand the offside rule!! quite incredible really for an expro.. let me explain it.. when Fellaini scored there was no one between him and the goalie.. but, and this is a big but, when the ball was first played across there 'was' a newcastle player between him and the goal.. i used watch fox soccer report religiosly (especially mondays and fridays) but will only watch the highlights of games now and wont be able to turn it off fast enough.(once highlights are over). please bring back the report with with Eoin, Asa and Michelle..

    They aren't stupid (I think?) they knew they had a good thing with Bobby & Co but tried to shave some dollars with some young faces....big mistake!
