mls-cup-portland-timbers

Major League soccer have released the full schedule for the 2016 campaign.

According to the report, the MLS season 2016 will be running from March 6 to Oct. 23.

This year the schedule will include a break during June 3-17 for the Copa America Centenario, which will take place in the United States.

The 2016 MLS season will also enjoy increased coverage by several major national networks. All the Friday matches are set to be televised on UniMas and Sunday ones will be covered by the likes of Fox and ESPN.

On top of the 30 matches set to be televised on Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports will also broadcast four other games on the network’s flagship station.

New York City FC vs. the New York Red Bulls on May 21

Portland Timbers vs. the Seattle Sounders on July 17

Red Bulls vs. NYCFC on July 24

Sporting Kansas City vs. the Timbers on July 31

ESPN are also set to broadcast 29 of their 34 matches on the primary network — a sharp increased from the nine games they televised in 2015.

Also another notable change to the schedule is that for the first time ever, all the games on the final day will kick off at the same time — at 4 p.m. ET on Oct. 23.

There will be other simultaneous kickoffs for the Eastern Conference matches and the Western Conference ones as well.

MLS have also announced that the weekends will be dedicated to rivalry matches: May 20-22 and Aug. 26-28.

MLS have also reduced their number of games on a particular match day for international matches in 2016.

As opposed to the usual 10 games on a single match day, there will be just three games during March, six during September and one in October.
