MLS kicks off 14th season with opener at Seattle

MLS announced its 2009 regular season schedule which kicks off Thursday, March 19 with the inaugural game of Seattle Sounders FC at Qwest Field. The expansion franchise Sounders will host the New York Red Bulls (9 p.m. ET, ESPN2).

Each of the 15 teams in MLS will play 30 regular season games for a total of 225 games. The 15 MLS clubs will face each other twice for a base of 28 games per team. The two remaining games for each team will be against intra-conference opponents, with a priority on rivalry matchups.

This year 90 percent of MLS games will be played on weekends (Friday, Saturday or Sunday), compared to about 84 percent in 2008 and 80 percent in 2007. MLS reduced the volume of games on or around Aug. 12, Sept. 5 and Oct. 10 -- all World Cup qualifying dates.

Most games on ESPN2 will be offered in high definition, with Seven games on ESPN2 airing in an extended 2½-hour window. One regular season game, Seattle at Chicago on July 25, will be broadcast on ESPN. All MLS games on ESPN2 will be simulcast on ESPN360 and ESPN Deportes. In this, the third year of an eight-year agreement, MLS and ESPN have mutually agreed to schedule select matches outside the Thursday night window. Thirteen of the 27 games on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes will air on weekends (Friday, Saturday or Sunday).
