The Rochester Lancers have announced the return of Joe Giuliano as broadcast director for Lancers TV and Lancers Radio.

Giuliano was part of the original indoor Lancers broadcast team since 2011.

In 1995, Giuliano was part of the first soccer radio talk show in America, Soccer Is A Kick In The Grass, with original Lancers owner “Lonesome” Charlie Schiano. He covered the Rochester Rhinos on national TV in 1996 and remained with the club until this past season.

“I am excited about returning to the Rochester Lancers. I had an amazing time covering the Indoor Lancers for 4 seasons,” Giuliano said. “I hope to add a great broadcast team soon to compliment Jim Mickol and the team at SEVideo.”

Added Lancers general manager Marc Mandell: “Having Joe join the Rochester Lancers is a dream come true. I grew up listening to Joe cover the Rhinos and I followed all the away Lancers Indoor games with Joe making you feel like you were there.”

All Lancers home games will be on, where fans can either watch or listen.

“I think it’s great that all the home Lady Lancers games will be shown LIVE on,” said Lady Lancers general manager Loren Inglese said. “Coaches throughout the country can watch these phenomenal athletes game after game.”

The Lancers and Lady Lancers home opener is set for the Wegman’s Sports Complex at Aquinas Institute Sunday, May 21. The women kick off at 1 p.m., followed by the men at 4 p.m.

The Lady Lancers will compete in United Women’s Soccer and the Lancers men in the National Premier Soccer League.
