Los Angeles Soccer: KDOC

GALAXY: TV schedule is out, sort of

February, 19, 2012

The Galaxy planned to announce their television schedule for this season a few weeks back, but that was pushed back for some reason and there's no word on when the club will unveil it.

Except that it already has.

The Galaxy is distributing rosters (with photos) of the team at its “caravan” events leading to next month's kickoff to the Major League Soccer season, and they include the full schedule, with television, on the back.

The schedule indicates that the Galaxy will make their debut on Time Warner Cable's new local sports network Oct. 21 against San Jose, their only regular-season appearance scheduled for the channel, which is set to debut in October.

The Galaxy's primary television homes this season are KDOC/Channel 56 in English (18 games) and KWHY/Channel 22 (14) in Spanish, along with national telecasts on ESPN and ESPN2 (8) and the new NBC Sports Network (7) in English and ESPN Deportes (8) and Galavision (6) in Spanish.

Additional CONCACAF Champions League games will be added to the schedule, if the Galaxy wins their quarterfinal series with Toronto FC and once the next tournament's slate is announced, and midseason friendlies also are expected.

Here's the schedule the Galaxy has distributed (all times Pacific; home games in bold):
