TV: MLS Western Conference semifinal moved to Thursday night on FOX

Wednesday night's Sporting KC-Minnesota United match in MLS's Western Conference semifinal on FS1 has been moved to Thursday night on FOX.

The game is believed to be the first weeknight prime-time appearance for MLS on network television. It was moved after the NFL was forced to move the Baltimore-Dallas game from Thursday to the following Tuesday, opening up a time slot on FOX for MLS.

The NFL Ravens have been hit by a COVID-19 outbreak, which forced their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers to be changed three times. It now will be played Wednesday afternoon.
With the schedule change, the Western Conference final has been moved from Sunday to Monday. If Seattle beats FC Dallas on Tuesday, it will host the game, which would have had to be moved any way because the Seahawks are at home on Sunday. Audi 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs Schedule
