IRVINE, Calif. - The Orange County Soccer Club will have a national audience when the season resumes, with the club's first game back, July 16 against Phoenix Rising FC set to air nationally on ESPN2, and on the ESPN App.
"We are so excited for the opportunity to resume the season in front of a national audience and share our exciting brand of OC soccer with fans nationwide", said Orange County SC President of Business Operations, Jeff Garner. "Being on ESPN2 gives us the opportunity to grow our fanbase and represent the league."
