What: The longest standing member of the U.S. Soccer Federation announced the expansion of the USL Television Network to Pittsburgh.
Why it matters: In April, the USL Television Network announced local broadcast agreements in 17 unique markets, this allowed it to reach more than 10 million households, transmitting more than 300 games during the 2017 USL season.

USLUSL Productions, the league’s innovative $10 million broadcast center created in association with VISTA Worldlink in Fort Lauderdale, Fla, which houses the USL Television Network and Match Center, signed a broadcast agreement with CW affiliate WPCW-TV to air select Riverhounds matches this season in Pittsburgh.
