(SUNRISE, FL) – Fox Sports Net Florida announced today it will televise the Fusion F.C.'s October 14 semifinal playoff game against the San Jose Earthquakes. The exclusive local telecast will air live on Fox Sports Net beginning at 9:00pm local time on Sunday. The announcement was made by Jeff Genthner, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Florida's only 24-hour regional sports network.
"Fox Sports Net Florida is thrilled that this opportunity presented itself and that we can bring live playoff soccer to Fusion fans throughout the state this weekend," said Genthner. "Our decision was easy to make when it became apparent that the game was not going to be seen locally. Fox Sports Net is committed to delivering the best hometown sports coverage to Florida's loyal viewers, and we are pleased we have the resources to step up to the plate at this exciting time in the Fusion's season."
Fox Sports Net Florida will pick-up a live feed from its sister network, Fox Sports Net Bay Area. Calling the game will be Fox Sports Net Bay Area play-by-play man John Shrader and analyst John Doyle.
