After spending their first five year's on KING/KONG, the Sounders will have 21 of their games broadcast on the local Fox Q13 and partner station JoeTV.

Originally announced by Q13 sports host Aaron Levine the front office of Seattle Sounders FC confirmed during the annual business meeting that the broadcast is moving to Q13 and JoeTV (channel 22). This relationship mirrors the KING/KONG broadcast in past seasons.

Vice-President of Business Operations Bart Wiley says that the formal announcement is just a few more days.

The thirteen national games are one short of the maximum number of matches on national networks. Wiley mentioned that future schedules will be made with more regard for national broadcasters rather than for the local audience.

There is no indication that the broadcast team will change. The future announcement should address the status of ancillary programming like the weekly.

Also of note Root Sports is no longer the presenting sponsor of the Sounders Alliance.
