- 2012 First Kick, 2012 MLS Season
Major League Soccer announced today the national TV schedule for First Kick, which includes the first match of the new NBC deal, the Montreal Impact’s debut, and a visit to the noisy cauldron that is JELD-WEN Field.
Some folks weren’t too thrilled to see FC Dallas host the first NBC game but given the opponent for it – New York – the attendance should be fine for Arlo White’s first broadcast. There is plenty of star power for that game in my mind.
What do you all make of these First Kick games?

6 p.m. ET on TSN and in French on RDS or RDS2 from BC Place
