Columbus Crew SC announced today that the club have extended an agreement with Sinclair Broadcasting Group. The agreement was signed prior to the 2016 season and followed a disastrous television deal that left some fans unable to view matches.

President of Business Operations Andy Loughnane maintained that it was important for Crew SC to find a broadcast partner that made matches readily available for consumers in Central Ohio.

“The ability to broadcast Crew SC matches over-the-air remains an organizational priority and we look forward to continuing this important partnership in 2018,” Loughnane said.

With a new deal in place, the Black & Gold will once again be available over-the-air on the Sinclair Broadcast Group stations in 2018.

Matches will be shown locally in Columbus on ABC 6, The CW Columbus, FOX-28 and MyTV. Broadcast details, including channel assignments and broadcast partners, will be made available at a later date.
