SACRAMENTO, Calif. (April 13, 2017) – Sacramento Republic FC renewed its broadcast partnerships with CW31 and Sports 1140 KHTK. At least 20 of the club’s remaining 28 USL matches, and a potential international friendly match will air on local TV. Republic FC’s broadcasts on CW31 will begin with the club’s first locally televised road match on Saturday, April 15.
CBS13/CW31 and Sports 1140 KHTK serve as the official broadcast partners of Sacramento Republic FC.
“We are always striving to elevate the beautiful game and reach more people in the Sacramento region and we believe our broadcast partnership with CW31, CBS13 and Sports 1140 KHTK continues this mission,” said Republic FC Vice President of Marketing and Communications Erika Bjork. “The addition of away matches to this seasons’ broadcast schedule allows Republic FC fans a new way to watch our boys in Old Glory Red that was previously unavailable.”
Republic FC will broadcast 21 matches on CW31 in 2017, including 14 of Republic FC’s remaining 15 home matches and seven of the club’s road matches. This will be the first season that Republic FC road matches will be broadcast on local TV. Broadcast production of the matches will be done by VISTA through the USL Television Network.
Home and road matches televised by CW31 will feature the duo of Rob McAllister and Kevin Goldthwaite, who return to the booth for their fourth season broadcasting the club’s matches. Good Day Sacramento anchor Julissa Ortiz will resume duties as sideline reporter for home matches to round out the television broadcast team.
Republic FC will broadcast ten home matches on Sports 1140 KHTK in 2017. Select Republic FC 2017 U.S. Open Cup home matches will also be aired (dates to be announced).
