How to Watch Austin FC in 2021

Here’s your guide to watching Austin FC games in 2021.

The CW Austin/KNVA is the flagship English language television station of Austin FC and will broadcast a majority of the Verde’s regional regular season games. For any matches the CW Austin doesn’t carry, KXAN or KBVO will pick them up.

That means all local regular season matches will be broadcast over-the-air (OTA) in hi-def to 100% of the TV households in the greater Austin metro viewing area. Not all MLS cities can say that!

Where to watch the game on TV

Home matches will be televised on the following OTA channels. (Scroll down to view the full game-by-game broadcast schedule.)

  • The CW Austin/KNVA: Channel 54
  • KXAN: Channel 36
  • KBVO: Channel 27

Channels will vary if you have cable. On AT&T, Spectrum, and Grande, you can find the CW Austin on channel 12 (SD).

As the season kickoff draws near, full details of Austin FC’s inaugural MLS broadcast schedule will be released, including: 

  • Non-regional games
  • San Antonio broadcasts??
  • Spanish language telecasts (channel assignment and broadcast talent)
  • Streaming options

Who are the commentators for Austin FC?

Adrian Healey brings his British accent and impressive soccer broadcasting experience to Texas as the club’s English language play-by-play commentator. A massive front office hire in 2020, Healey’s anchored ESPN’s MLS game coverage for pretty much the last decade, plus he’s been lead announcer for six MLS Cups, among other notable on-air accomplishments.

In March 2021, Adrian welcomed Michael Lahoud, a former MLS and USL player, to the broadcast booth. He’s already dipped his toe in the local TV broadcast scene as an analyst for women’s soccer on the Longhorn Network.

Adrian has yet to hire a sideline reporter to complete the English language broadcast team for regional games.
