8. TELEVISION: Fox Soccer Channel & USL make 3-year deal

Under a new three-year agreement, Fox Soccer Channel will air 27 United Soccer Leagues games annually. FSC will broadcast a weekly Friday night USL First Division match and all USL League Championship games.

"We are excited to announce the continuation of our presence on Fox Soccer Channel," said USL executive vice president and COO Tim Holt. "Fox Soccer Channel has become the destination for soccer viewing in North America over the past few years and it is only natural that it is home to our weekly national telecasts."

The new deal, through 2009, comes on the heels of a previous five-year relationship relationship between USL and Fox Soccer Channel. USL broadcasts will also be available on Fox Soccer Channel sister networks Fox Sports en Espanol, Fox Sports World Canada and Fox Sports Middle East/Africa.

The first broadcast, Charleston vs. Minnesota season, airs April 20. Click HERE for 2007 schedule.
