US Open Cup competition has improved but TV and radio coverage is lacking
It’ll be the one and only place you can go to hear what’s going on in the oldest ongoing competition in American soccer.
Using your computer or Rabble.tv iPhone app, join me this Wednesday on Rabble.tv beginning at 7pm ET for my US Open Cup whiparound coverage. I’ll be announcing the action as well as to bringing you up-to-speed on the other Round 3 games.
Plus, I’m sure I’ll be talking about the biggest news story of the year — FIFA and CONCACAF officials being indicted on corruption charges.
I want to encourage you to do the same, too. If you’re attending a US Open Cup and you have access to a laptop and a WiFi connection, you can register for free on Rabble.tv and broadcast audio of the game with your opinions and observations.
While MLS and US Soccer are making progress with the TV rights deal they secured with FOX, ESPN and Univision for the next 8 years, it’s time for the US Open Cup to get some respect and greater coverage than just the championship final. After all, the name of the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup is named after someone who showed a true dedication to sport. It’s time for the TV and radio coverage to live up to that in this 102nd edition of the oldest ongoing soccer competition in the US.
Bookmark Rabble.tv and listen to me there at 7pm ET Wednesday.
