If you're interested in catching Houston's NWSL team, the Dash, during their first season, it just became much easier. According to a release from the team, CSN Houston has signed on with the women's professional team to broadcast 11 of the 12 live from BBV Stadium in 2014. Sebastian Salazar has been named the play-by-play announcer while Jen Cooper will be the color commentator.
Here's how the coverage will work. All games will be available through CSN and additional CSN media outlets, including online video and editorial coverage on csnhouston.com and SportsNet Center, which is the network's daily sports show airing at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Dynamo President Chris Canetti expressed his excitement at partnering with the local network.
"The fact that they are willing to partner with the Dash in its inaugural year is a sign of interest surrounding the team and professional women's soccer here in Houston," Canetti said in a press release. "This is another milestone for the club in its brief existence."
"We have a strong relationship with the Houston Dynamo and we've both been pleased with the high quality match production and partnership between the organizations," Timothy (Murphy) Brown, executive producer and vice president of production of CSN Houston, said in the same release. "Broadcasting the Houston Dash season is a natural extension of that partnership."
