Chivas USA reaches television deal for remaining 2013 games

Chivas USA said Wednesday it reached agreement for most of its remaining nine regular-season games this year to be televised in English and for all nine to be shown in Spanish.

The Major League Soccer team, which had been without a local broadcast deal, said station KDOC-TV would televise seven of the games in English, starting with this Sunday's game against the Whitecaps in Vancouver.

In addition, MundoFox22 (KWHY-TV) will show seven games in Spanish starting with the Vancouver match, and Univision will carry the other two remaining games in Spanish.

Chivas USA's games also will continue to air on 690 AM radio.

The new agreements "will allow us to reach our goal of having Chivas USA viewed in the entire Los Angeles market," Chivas USA Sporting President Dennis te Kloese said in a statement.

Chivas USA -- which shares its home venue StubHub Center in Carson with the Galaxy -- is last in the MLS Western Conference with a record of 5-14-6.
