Beginning this weekend, Reign fans in the Greater Seattle area can catch their team on local TV. The club announced a new partnership with KING 5 Media Group that will feature 11 regular season games on TV. Matches will air on KONG-TV (Channel 16 OTA / 6 on Xfinity) and stream for free on the KING 5+ app.

KING 5 Media Group will have local broadcast rights to six home and five away games, including the Reign’s next three games in April. The network will also provide on-field post-game coverage for home matches, additional post-game analysis, and exclusive interviews with Reign FC coaches and players.

While the Reign have had local broadcast deals in the past, this is certainly the largest one they've secured. Their deal in 2022 was good for four matches on FOX 13+, which then increased to eight last year and didn't come with the same promises around additional coverage that KING 5 seems to be offering.

“We are delighted to forge a relationship with Seattle Reign FC, continuing our commitment to lead the market with dedicated local sports reporting and programming.” said KING 5 president and general manager, Christy Moreno. “We’re equally proud we can provide our Northwest communities with free, over-the-air and live stream coverage of professional women’s soccer and unparalleled coverage of the Reign FC organization.”

These 11 matches will also continue to stream on NWSL+, the league's new direct-to-consumer app, giving fans multiple ways to catch the games.
