[SOCCER ON THE AIR] Baseball's popularity in cities like Kansas City and St. Louis is legendary because of its media reach across the Midwest. Sporting Kansas City's reach is growing with the expansion of its television network into nine states.

Beginning with Saturday's home opener against FC Dallas (7:30 p.m. CT kickoff) --  the first of 23 broadcasts -- the Sporting Kansas City Television Network will feature eight affiliates reaching fans in nine states across the Midwest.

Sporting Kansas City Television Network:
KMCI (38 the Spot): All 23 games as flagship station in Kansas City
WIBW: All 23 games in Topeka, Kan. market
KMTW: All 23 games in Wichita, Kan. market
Cox Channel (Oklahoma): All 23 games in Oklahoma City, Okla. and Tulsa, Okla. markets

MC22: Up to 20 games in markets across Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin (five will air on tape delay in select markets)
KZOU: 16 games in Columbia, Mo. market
 
"The interest and demand for Sporting Kansas City matches continues to grow and we're pushing the bar to provide a broadcast network that will bring our club and our stadium into living rooms throughout the Midwest," said Chris Wyche, Sporting KC's Executive Vice President of Operations and Executive Producer of the Sporting KC Television Network. "This will provide unprecedented brand exposure in the region and will showcase our games to our fans far and wide while delivering quality programming for our partners."
