Phoenix Rising FC officially announced KASW-TV (Your Phoenix CW) as its new television home for the 2019.

“This is exciting news for Phoenix Rising fans” Bobby Dulle, general manager of Phoenix Rising FC, said in a prepared statement. “The partnership with Your Phoenix CW improves our distribution and reach across Arizona, making Rising more accessible to our great supporters.”

KASW-TV will air 35 Phoenix Rising games, including every USL game, according to a press release.

“This is a really exciting time for us,” Traci Wilkinson, VP and general manager of KASW-TV, said in a prepared statement. “Phoenix Rising FC has a huge presence in the valley and we’re proud to share their success with our audience.”

Rising FC’s clash with MLS club Real Salt Lake Saturday, Feb. 16 as part of the Mobile Mini Sun Cup will be the first game to air on KASW-TV.

The soccer club plays at the Phoenix Rising FC Soccer Complex on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community near the intersections of the 101 and 202 freeways.

The team made it to the USL Finals last season, ultimately falling 1-0 to Louisville City FC.
