[SOCCER ON THE AIR] Chivas USA is back on the air locally, reaching an agreement with KDOC-TV to become the official English-language local television broadcast partner for its MLS games. The first of 10 regular-season games aired Saturday against FC Dallas.
 
“We are pleased to provide our fans with the chance to follow the team on award-winning KDOC-TV, and we hope to have further broadcast announcements in the near future,” said Chivas USA President Nelson Rodriguez in a statement.
 
Chivas USA also partnered with KDOC-TV in 2013 to provide English-language telecasts in Southern California. Of KDOC’s 10 scheduled telecasts, seven will feature Chivas USA road matches. Chivas USA was the lone MLS club without a local TV deal.

“LA56 KDOC-TV is proud to continue its relationship with MLS and Chivas USA,” said John Manzi, president and general manager of LA 56.  “The station recognizes the positive direction the team is heading, and the importance of giving LA soccer fans the opportunity to watch local MLS action.”
