Rising FC and Arizona Sports have partnered up for the 2019 season.

“We are thrilled to further enhance the access and reach of Phoenix Rising FC to sports fans in the Valley,” Bobby Dulle, general manager of Phoenix Rising FC said in a release.

“The partnership with Arizona Sports provides a unique way to give Rising fans more daily and weekly updates about the team and live audio access to all of our home and away matches.”

Under the partnership, all Rising FC games will be exclusively streamed on ArizonaSports.com, and three games will air on ESPN 620 AM beginning in June.

In addition, ArizonaSports.com will include a page fully dedicated to Rising FC team coverage, and a weekly podcast hosted by ArizonaSports.com’s Kellan Olson. Members of the team will also appear on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s weekend programming throughout the season.

“We are very excited to offer Phoenix Rising streaming audio broadcasts exclusively on Arizona Sports digital properties with ArizonaSports.com as the hub,” Scott Sutherland, vice-president/market manager for Bonneville Phoenix said in a release.

“Phoenix Rising has strong ownership with aggressive goals for growth and a very passionate fanbase, and this multimedia marketing partnership allows us to attract a new audience in our ongoing efforts to super serve the local sports fan.”

The Rising FC’s next game will air on ArizonaSports.com when it takes on Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
