FC on TV
CBC will be the main carrier for Toronto FC this season, broadcasting 11 of the team's 30 Major League Soccer games starting with the home opener on April 1.
Rogers Sportsnet will air 10, while the MLSE-owned GolTV digital channel has nine. Fox Sports World Canada has one game on its schedule. At this point, one game will be shown on tape delay.
Nigel Reed will return to call CBC games along with analyst Jason De Vos. Gerry Dobson and Craig Forrest will be behind the microphones for Sportsnet.
All of FC's games will also be carried on radio or the Internet for the first time. Dan Dunleavy and Bob Iarusci will handle the games on The FAN 590 (17) or the FAN's website (13).
Now, if only TV viewers could match the enthusiasm of those at the stadium. FC games are good entertainment, but for some reason ratings remain dismally low. Having Vancouver in the league in a couple of years will help.
