Well deserved, and probably overdue:


Toronto FC announced Tuesday that the club has teamed up with Toronto’s 24 hour sports radio station The FAN 590 to broadcast every game this season. With the team heading into their third season in Major League Soccer, this will mark the first time Toronto FC games will be broadcast on the radio in the team’s history.

The FAN 590 will broadcast all 30 games on the schedule. Fifteen games will be broadcast live in their entirety, with two to be joined in progress. The remaining thirteen games will air on The FAN’s website www.fan590.com.

“We’re happy to have secured the radio coverage our supporters have been asking for,” said Tom Anselmi executive vice president and chief operating officer of Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment Ltd. This agreement further extends our deal with The FAN and Rogers Media to another one of our sports properties.”

The first broadcast will air this Saturday, March 21 as Toronto FC travels to Kansas City to take on the Wizards as they open their 2009 MLS regular season. The broadcast will get underway at 8 p.m. ET with the Dan Dunleavy handling the play-by-play and former Canadian National team member Bob Iarusci serving as Analyst.

the Fan590 will be doing THREE HOURS of TFC talk on Wednesday night (March 18) from 7-10 pm.

The 3 hour show will be hosted by Alex Sixiero (very knowledgeable guy) and Bobby Iarusci will be in studio. I wouldn't be surprised if Dan Dunleavy and Luke Wileman are also in studio.

For those in the GTA, be sure to flood the phonelines to talk about the team and the sport in general. Lord knows we don't get a lot of chances to talk TFC or Soccer in general on the Fan590 (although its getting better, especially thanks to guys like Doug Farraway).

for those outside Toronto, listen live on www.fan590.com
