As Sporting KC goes for their first US Open Cup trophy since 2012, they'll possibly get a prime time television slot as ESPN2 will broadcast the US Open Cup final next Wednesday in Philadelphia.
Thecup.us noted that the ESPN schedule on the website has the game listed in it's grid for next Wednesday. The talk is that the deal is still being finalized and is not certain as of yet.
Yes, it’s on the TV grid for ESPN2, but my understanding is that the deal isn’t finalized yet and may be called off.— Jonathan Tannenwald (@thegoalkeeper) September 24, 2015
Should the final air on ESPN2, it will be the first time since 1999 that the network hosted the final and would give the final its biggest platform in years. It has bounced between GolTV and Fox Soccer Channel the past decade and a half.
