YES to televise 29 New York City FC matches this season, its most ever

All YES telecasts will also be streamed live on the YES app

The YES Network will televise 29 New York City FC matches this season, its most ever, starting with the Saturday, April 17 season opener at D.C. United (8 p.m. ET). All 29 New York City FC matches televised by YES will also be streamed live on the YES app. Joe Tolleson and Ian Joy will return to handle play-by-play and analyst duties, respectively. YES will air a 30-minute pregame show immediately prior to each of its NYCFC telecasts.

NYCFC is coming off their fifth straight playoff appearance in 2020 and no team across MLS has earned more points than the Boys in Blue since the start of that run in 2016. In head coach Ronny Deila’s first season in the Bronx, the Norwegian boss led NYCFC to a berth in the 2021 Leagues Cup -- NYCFC’s first appearance in that competition.

The club returns all-star midfielder Maxi Moralez, U.S. men’s national team goalkeeper Sean Johnson and homegrown midfielder James Sands, who recently signed a five-year contract extension.

The squad has won three straight preseason matches heading into the final tune-up this weekend against Hartford Athletic. The match will be streamed live from the club’s training ground, Etihad City Football Academy New York, on at noon ET.
