LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The River City Rovers will host Forest City London, the reigning PDL champions, in their regular-season opener this Saturday night at the Rovers’ new home stadium, the Shelby County Athletic Complex. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
“This is an extraordinary event,” said Rovers coach Muhamed Fazlagic. “The Rovers are only three years in the PDL and already we are opening the season against the national champions.”
For most of its second season in 2012, the Rovers sat in second place in the PDL's Great Lakes Division, even defeating the Michigan Bucks -- the PDL’s regular-season champion. London edged out River City for second place, and then made a remarkable run through the PDL playoffs, defeating the Carolina Dynamo 2-1 in Greensboro, N.C. in the 2012 PDL Championship Game. The PDL is the fourth-tier of organized soccer in the United States, with the Great Lakes Division’s standard of competition being consistently among the highest in the league.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to see such competitive soccer right here in Kentucky,” said Rovers Executive Director Pete Laventis.
Admission for Saturday's season-opener is $7. In honor of Armed Forces Day, active military with ID are free. Free water bottles will be given to the first 100 fans.
The Rovers, one of 65 teams in the PDL nationwide, showcase the finest area players who currently play for independent club and college soccer teams. Already recognized for its diversity, the Rovers have featured local players from the University of Louisville, University of Kentucky, Centre College, Notre Dame, Bellarmine, as well as international players from Africa, Ireland, Mexico and Germany. 1 day ago - View -
Jacob Wang : SoccerAmerica - Lead-ins impact MLS television numbers 05/15/2013 3 of the last 4 MLS matches on NBC Sports Network averaged 54,000 viewers. The TV audience for the 4th game -- the May 4 Columbus-New York match -- was more than double that, averaging 122,000 viewers -- the 2nd highest viewership for an MLS game on NBC Sports Network in 2013. It followed a Kentucky Derby pre-race show that averaged 500,000 -- easily the largest afternoon viewership on NBCSN in recent months. The May 4 viewership pushed the MLS average through 13 games on NBCSN in 2013 to 91,800 viewers, up slightly from 91,300 through the first 13 games in 2012, its first season on NBCSN. That still leaves MLS far off the pace of its final average of 122,000 for 40 regular-season games on NBCSN in 2012. What made the 2012 final average higher by a third? 5 MLS broadcasts took place during the London Olympics when NBCSN drew record audiences. Benefiting from the lead-ins of Olympic coverage, the 5 MLS games averaged 286,000 viewers. If you throw those 5 games out, the MLS average for 2012 would have been 99,000 viewers. While the English Premier League is competition for MLS on a crowded U.S. soccer television market, it could provide a boost for MLS when it launches on NBCSN in August. The lead-in of the EPL on Saturday or Sunday afternoons will be better than what it gets now on NBCSN. Saturday's Chicago-Philadelphia match drew just 51,000 viewers -- lower than even the FA Cup replay on Fox Soccer -- after following such shows as Napa's North to Alaska & NHL 36. Napa's North to Alaska -- featuring former Miami Dolphins great Larry Csonka -- drew more than double what the Chicago-Philadelphia match drew -- 113,000 viewers vs. 51,000 -- should give pause, though, to the notion that strong lead-ins alone are the solution to MLS's national TV woes. 1 day ago - View -

SuperSport Football : Atletico stun Real to win King's Cup Atletico Madrid won their 10th King's Cup when defender Miranda scored in the first half of extra time to secure a 2-1 victory against city rivals Real Madrid in a bad-tempered clash on Friday.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who was shown a straight red card near the end of the game, headed Real ahead in the 14th minute at their Bernabeu stadium before Atletico forward Diego Costa levelled 10 minutes before halftime.
Miranda nodded in a Koke cross in the ninth minute of extra time to deny Real and coach Jose Mourinho, who was sent from the bench for protesting a decision in the second half of regular time, a 19th Cup triumph. 1 day ago - View -
