TAMPA, Fla. – USL League One announced Wednesday that the final will be broadcast on linear television for the first time on ESPN Deportes on Friday, Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. ET.
In addition to the Spanish-language broadcast, the final will stream live in English on ESPN+ for the second consecutive season and will be broadcast live on SiriusXM FC Radio for the first time.
As part of USL’s broadcast rights deal with ESPN, which extends through 2022, League One’s first two seasons have been streamed live on ESPN+. The digital platform will carry the remaining regular season matches as teams vie for a place in the League One final, with the two teams atop the 11-team table earning a trip to the championship game.
“The 2020 League One season has provided tremendous excitement on the field, and the Final will serve as a great conclusion to a challenging season,” USL executive vice president Court Jeske said in a statement. “To have a match broadcast on the ESPN family of networks so early on in the league’s history is a fantastic milestone and one we couldn’t have reached without the commitment of our clubs and support of our communities across the country.”
