TAMPA, Fla. – The USL Championship announced today the regular season contest between Phoenix Rising FC and the Tampa Bay Rowdies on Sunday night will kick off at 10 p.m. ET and air on ESPN News and ESPN+, due to a scheduling conflict with the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The contest at Wild Horse Pass between the teams that topped their respective conferences in last year’s Championship regular season had originally been scheduled to air on ESPN2 at 9 p.m. ET. The change of network was necessitated by the Stanley Cup Playoffs series between the Calgary Flames and Dallas Stars going to a Game 7, which is scheduled for Sunday at 9:30 p.m. ET following the Stars’ victory to even the series on Friday.
