Major League Soccer will go head-to-head with the NFL on FOX this fall. MLS and Fox Sports announced that two soccer games will air live adjacent to regional NFL broadcasts as part of a joint lineup on Sunday, Sept. 18. It marks the first time in Major League Soccer’s 21-year history that a network partner has televised games from MLS and the NFL at the same time. The LA Galaxy visit Sporting Kansas City at 2 p.m. ET on FOX in both competing teams’ home markets as well as selected additional cities. Toronto FC then hosts the New York Red Bulls, with the game airing on FOX at 5 p.m. in the New York area.
