MLS Week 1 2023 announcer assignments: Who’s calling the matches on MLS Season Pass, FOX, FS1 this week?

Here’s who’s behind the mic as MLS kicks off its 28th season on Saturday.

MLS is back on Saturday, and as it begins its 28th season, it does so with a new broadcast partner: Apple TV. As you’re aware, every match, both regular season and postseason, will be streamed on MLS Season Pass in over 100 countries worldwide through at least 2032. That means no more regional TV broadcasts; rather, they’ll be more akin to what you’re used to with an NFL broadcast with a neutral pair of commentators. (FOX and FS1 will also simulcast 34 matches between the 2 of them during the season.)

With that said (and we’ll do a post like this every week), here are the MLS Season Pass commentary teams for all 14 matches set to take place during Week 1 as announced by MLS:
