KVIA to air Locomotive FC weekend home matches on El Paso-Las Cruces CW

The El Paso Locomotive Football Club announced Tuesday it has reached an agreement with KVIA-TV to broadcast all Saturday and Sunday home matches of its inaugural USL Championship season on the El Paso-Las Cruces CW.

“For those unable to be at Southwest University Park for a weekend Locomotive match, this provides an opportunity to see your local professional team in action,” said Alan Ledford, MountainStar Sports Group and Locomotive President. “We’re proud to be working with KVIA and El Paso-Las Cruces CW to make this possible.”

“We are elated to partner with the Locomotive to provide viewers with a quality broadcast of all 12 Saturday and one Sunday home game this season,” said KVIA-TV General Manager Kevin Lovell. “If you can’t get to the games at Southwest University Park, they will be carried on the El Paso-Las Cruces CW, available over-the-air and on all major cable and satellite outlets in the El Paso and Las Cruces TV market.”

The broadcast team will be comprised of Duke Keith and Michael Balogun. Keith has more than 30 years experience in the El Paso media market, including play-by-play for ESPN, the El Paso Patriots, El Paso Rhinos, and UTEP Athletics. Balogun played NCAA D1 soccer for the University of Akron, one of the most highly regarded programs in the country. He also spent time with the US Youth National Team and had stints with various professional clubs.

“The wealth of soccer knowledge and expertise they bring to the table is extraordinary,” said the team.

Twelve Saturday matches and one Sunday match will air live on the El Paso-Las Cruces CW, channels 13 (Spectrum), 388 (Comcast), 8 (DirecTV), 17 (Dish), 19 (AT&T).

The El Paso-Las Cruces CW is also available to everyone in the El Paso and Las Cruces region over the air on channel 7.2.
