Earthquakes Announce Local TV Broadcast Information for 2022 MLS Season

January 27, 2022 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - San Jose Earthquakes News Release

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Earthquakes announced today their local television broadcast schedule and full slate of kickoff times for the 2022 Major League Soccer season. NBC Sports Bay Area and California will televise 29 matches in 2022, with the other five regular season matches airing nationally.

Of the 29 matches airing on NBC Sports Bay Area and California, 24 will be shown on the network's two primary channels, with just five airing on the 'plus' overflow channels due to scheduling conflicts.

Several marquee matches will air locally in 2022, including the season opener against the New York Red Bulls (Feb. 26; 3 p.m. PT), San Jose's road clash with the defending MLS Cup champions NYCFC (May 1; 10 a.m. PT), LAFC's only visit to PayPal Park (Aug. 20; 7 p.m. PT), and the Decision Day season finale at Seattle Sounders FC (Oct. 9; 2 p.m. PT).

The broadcast crew of Anthony Passarelli, Chris Dangerfield and Danielle Slaton will continue to provide exciting play-by-play and provide insightful color commentary throughout the season.

Passarelli enters his 11th year broadcasting Earthquakes soccer, and ninth in the TV booth. A four-time NorCal AFTRA award-winning sports anchor and reporter, he has provided color commentary and radio play-by-play for Santa Clara University men's basketball for 15 years, as well as Santa Clara men's soccer and San Jose State men's basketball.

Dangerfield, entering his ninth consecutive year as a color analyst, was inducted into the Earthquakes Hall of Fame in 2018 for his work on and off the field. He served as the team's color analyst on television from 1996-99 following a great playing career in both the North American Soccer League and Western Soccer Alliance. In the NASL, Dangerfield was a key midfielder from 1982-84, scoring 14 goals and notching 14 assists for the Quakes in that span. He helped the 1983 Quakes to an undefeated season at home and a semifinal finish in the playoffs.

Slaton is entering her seventh consecutive season as a color analyst for the Quakes. She has provided commentary for major worldwide events, including the 2016 Rio Olympics for NBC, and 2015 and 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup for FOX. Slaton played for the U.S. Women's National Team from 2000-2005, earning a silver medal at the 2000 Olympic Games and a bronze in the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup. She also played professionally for Olympique Lyonnias in France, after spending her college years at Santa Clara University, where she captained her team to a NCAA championship in 2001. She was three-time All-American and was named the 2001 NCAA Scholar Athlete of the Year.
