As first reported by Stumptown Footy on Feb. 2, the Portland Timbers today confirmed that all 21 local broadcasts will be available on FOX 12 Plus. The Timbers also released the full broadcast schedule for the 2022 season. FOX 12 and ROOT SPORTS Northwest return as the club’s primary television partners. Announcer Jake Zivin and analysts Liam Ridgewell and Ross Smith will return once again as the broadcasting team for local broadcasts this season.
ROOT Sports will be the home for encore broadcasts of locally televised games. For fans that live in Oregon outside of the greater Portland & Southwest Washington area, KEVU in Eugene and KFBI in Medford will televise all games that air on FOX 12 Plus in the Willamette Valley and Southern Oregon.
FOX 12 will also be featuring a series a regular series of Timbers Insider content, which promises to take an immersive approach to all things PTFC in the lead up to matchdays.
As was previously reported, this move is likely to make local Timbers broadcasts more accessible to Timbers fans, both local and non-local. Whether it’s via the more accessible FOX 12 Plus television station or the ESPN+ streaming service, which is now more accessible due to less widespread blackout restrictions, Timbers fans will be able to tune in to watch the green and gold take the field.
