CARSON, Calif. – The LA Galaxy and FOX Sports West announced today the local broadcast schedule for the 2011 Galaxy season, meaning soccer fans in Southern California will be able to enjoy Galaxy games on FS West and sister network PRIME TICKET throughout the upcoming season.

The network is also bringing back the popular “Galaxy Live” program, a 30-minute pregame or postgame show that offers viewers an inside look at all of the latest and most up-to-date news surrounding the Galaxy.
The two sides also announced that the broadcasting duo of Jim Watson and Mark Rogondino will return for their fifth consecutive season. Watson will once again handle the play-by-play duties while Rogondino will serve as the broadcasts’ color analyst. Also returning is Jackie Pickering, who will be providing sideline reporting for all home games from The Home Depot Center for a fourth consecutive season in addition to hosting a number of segments in all episodes of “Galaxy Live”.
The network will begin their 13th season as the local destination of the LA Galaxy with the club’s home opener on Sunday, March 20 against the New England Revolution, presented by Pechanga Resort & Casino. The match, which will kickoff at 5 p.m., will be broadcast on delay at 8 p.m., including a 30-minute postgame edition of “Galaxy Live.”
