The Fire announced their local broadcast schedules with My50 covering games locally in the Chicago area, and Time Warner Cable Sports Channel broadcasting games in Wisconsin.

In the Chicago area, thirty-two of the team’s thirty-four league matches will be televised in English, while the season opener against Chivas USA and the Sept. 28 match against the Houston Dynamo will be broadcast nationally in Spanish without an English broadcast.

In addition to marking the second straight season the Fire open their season at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, it will be the second straight season in which that game was only available in the Chicago area in Spanish.

The July 26 internationally friendly against the London-based club Tottenham Hotspur of the Premier League will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2, ESPN Desportes and the Watch ESPN app.
