Arlo White to Call Four Games on WGN-TV Starting June 19

June 8, 2021 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Chicago Fire FC News Release


CHICAGO - Chicago Fire FC today announced play-by-play commentator Arlo White - whose Fire broadcast debut was postponed last year by the pandemic - will call four consecutive games for the Fire starting in Columbus on Saturday, June 19 at 6:30 p.m. CT. This match will be the Crew's final match at Historic Crew Stadium before moving into New Crew Stadium on July 3.

Following the June 19 broadcast, White will then call three consecutive home matches at Soldier Field:

Wednesday, June 23 at 7:00 p.m. CT vs. FC Cincinnati

Saturday, June 26 at 7:00 p.m. CT vs. Philadelphia Union

Saturday, July 3 at 7:00 p.m. CT vs Atlanta United FC

All four of these matches will air live on WGN-TV, Chicago's Very Own, and CFFC Live, the new streaming platform on ChicagoFireFC.com and the Chicago Fire FC mobile app.

White will be in the booth with Fire color analyst and U.S. Soccer Hall of Famer Tony Meola. Fire play-by-play commentator Tyler Terens will provide insight from field level during each of the three upcoming home matches.

New enhancements for 2021: Fire broadcasts have featured additional specialty cameras this year. A super-slo-mo camera is in use, allowing for detailed analysis from the commentators. Upgraded netcams have been installed, and a jib camera, located at the south end of Soldier Field, close to the Fire supporters' section, has become a mainstay.

An on-field rail cam has made its debut as the first camera of its kind in MLS. It captures the speed of game action along the sideline for all Fire home matches and is featured on both the broadcast and in-stadium videoboards.

The Fire have also introduced a fresh on-air look and feel, having created an entirely new graphics package for the 2021 season.
