The growing interest in Leeds United among soccer fans in the US is paying off. So much so that the team’s match on Wednesday, November 9 in the League Cup will be televised on ESPN2 and ESPN+. Not only that, but the Leeds-Wolves cup game at 2:45 pm ET will serve as an appetizer before the announcement of the USMNT World Cup team.
Once the Leeds-Wolves telecast on ESPN2 ends, coverage will switch to Brooklyn to reveal the USMNT roster.
How to watch the USMNT World Cup roster presentation
The USMNT World Cup roster reveal event kicks off at 5 p.m., with live coverage from Brooklyn Steel in New York City. Brooklyn Steel, an 1,800-seat music venue, is a hall where attendees stand. However, the event is by invitation only. There is also a reception and post-reveal party on either side of the actual name announcement.
For those watching at home, the hour-long show is available through both traditional television and streaming. As stated, viewers can catch it at 5 pm on ESPN2 or ESPN+. In addition to the revelation and Gregg Berhalter, there are players who will travel to Qatar to play.
ESPN soccer coverage
Although FOX Sports has the rights to the 2022 World Cup, ESPN has acquired the rights to broadcast the big USMNT event. It’s just part of a busy week for soccer on ESPN+.
In addition to Leeds United’s League Cup match against Wolves, ESPN+ is broadcasting several more matches from the competition. In Germany, there is an action-packed Bundesliga midweek. Also, November 6 is the air date of the ESPN E60 special on the controversy in Qatar.
Speaking of Leeds United, the irony is that Jesse Marsch is in charge of the Elland Road club. Depending on how well USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter does at the 2022 World Cup, Marsch would be the favorite for the US job if Berhalter fails to qualify. There is still a long way to go before that happens. In the meantime, we wish Berhalter the best of luck at Qatar 2022.
