The Philadelphia Union has announced an exciting new radio partnership for fans looking for a local broadcast. The team has inked a deal with 97.5 The Fanatic, giving fans the opportunity to listen to the game on the radio once again. In addition, fans watching the games on MLS Season Pass can now hear local commentators calling the game, making for a more immersive experience.

The primary hosts for the games will be Dave Leno and former U defender Sheanon Williams. Leno brings a wealth of experience to the role, having previously served as pregame and postgame hosts and called the games in previous years. Williams, who was part of the inaugural team, has also been a part of the pregame and post-game shows in the past season. Together, they will provide insightful commentary and analysis on the games.

Joining Leno and Williams will be a team of knowledgeable analysts, including Jonathan Yardley, Lisa Roman, and club legend Sébastien Le Toux. Additionally, the team’s Director of Digital and Content, Adam Cann, will contribute to the coverage, bringing a unique perspective to the broadcasts.

Philadelphia Union President, Tim McDermott, spoke highly of the partnership, saying, “They’re an integral part of the city’s sports ecosystem and will help us ignite passion with our existing fans and inspire a new audience.”

The first live broadcast of the season, led by Leno and Williams, will be less than a week away, with the home opener against Columbus Crew scheduled for February 25 at 7:30 p.m. With this new radio partnership, fans can look forward to a more comprehensive and engaging experience when following their favorite team.
