Philadelphia Union, Fox Sports The Gambler renew partnership


The Philadelphia Union and Fox Sports The Gambler announced a two-year deal to bring soccer to the airwaves through the iHeart Radio app and on 1480 AM, 102.5 FM in Philly or 104.5 HD2 for those with a HD2 radio.

Sean Brace and Joe Tansey will present the "Union Pregame Show presented by DraftKings" a half-hour before every game. Crossing Broad's Kevin Kinkead will join the "Union Postgame Show" to provide analysis of Union matches. "The Line Change" host Jon Jansen will also be on pregame and postgame coverage.

The Philadelphia Union open their Major League Soccer campaign on Sunday afternoon against the Columbus Crew. Dave Leno and Sebastien Le Toux will have the game call. The Gambler's pregame coverage begins at 5 p.m. ET.

Philadelphia is coming off its most successful MLS season that produced the club's first-ever trophy: the Supporters' Shield.

The Shield clinched a spot in the Concacaf Champions League for the Union, who advanced to the quarterfinals on Wednesday with a win over Costa Rican side Saprissa.
