LouCity FC fans should have something to rejoice about. The Louisville City Football Club has reached a new broadcast deal with Union Broadcasting’s family of radio stations.
This moves the team, one of the most popular on the second tier of the US Soccer pyramid, from WKRD to both ESPN Louisville and 93.9 the Ville.
Jeff Greer will continue as LouCity’s play-by-play announcer. Former University of Louisville player Casey Whitfield remains in the analyst role.
“We’re pleased to continue airing Louisville City FC games on the radio and excited about aligning with a local leader in sports talk,” LouCity president Brad Estes announced. “Supporters will be able to hear more than ever about our clubs as pro soccer’s following continues to grow in the community.”
In addition to the team’s games, the Union Broadcasting stations will also air shoulder programming. That includes the Soccer City show which will re-launch this spring. Greer and Whitfield will be regular contributors to the show.
LouCity’s plays in the USL. The league’s 32-game regular season will begin on May 1 barring any unforeseen circumstance.
