NEW YORK (October 26, 2017) – The North American Soccer League (NASL) announced Thursday that its national broadcast television partner, beIN SPORTS, will be the exclusive carrier of The Championship, the league’s four-team postseason tournament that kicks off in November.

The semifinal round of The Championship, which contains two games, will kick off on Sunday, November 5, and The Championship Final will take place the following weekend. The winner of the Spring Season, Miami FC, will host one semifinal game, while the San Francisco Deltas, who clinched the No. 2 seed this past weekend, will host the other. Below are the broadcast details for each semifinal matchup:

 

Miami FC (No. 1) vs. TBD (No. 4)
Sunday, November 5 | 5 p.m. ET
Riccardo Silva Stadium | Miami, Fla.
beIN SPORTS (TV) | beIN SPORTS en Español (TV)
beIN SPORTS CONNECT (Digital)

 

San Francisco Deltas (No. 2) vs. TBD (No. 3)
Sunday, November 5 | 8 p.m. ET
Kezar Stadium | San Francisco, Calif.
beIN SPORTS (TV) | beIN SPORTS en Español (TV)
beIN SPORTS CONNECT (Digital)

 

The date, kickoff time, and host club for The Championship Final, along with the exact details for the beIN SPORTS broadcast, will be based on the results of the semifinal round. The highest-advancing seed will host the title game.  

NASL action has been featured all year long on beIN SPORTS, beIN SPORTS en Español, and beIN SPORTS CONNECT.

North Carolina FC locked up its place in the postseason last Sunday, but the club’s seed has yet to be determined. The battle between the New York Cosmos and Jacksonville Armada FC for the fourth and final spot in The Championship is heading into the final weekend of the Fall Season. New York hosts Puerto Rico at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday, while Jacksonville plays that same evening in San Francisco.
