El Paso Locomotive FC and KVIA-TV, local ABC affiliate, continue their partnership and dedication to the community by airing the USL Western Conference Final this Saturday on local television.
This broadcast will allow for all fans in the El Paso – Las Cruces area to tune in and support the Locos in their historic playoff run. Locomotive has one goal in mind; to bring a professional soccer championship to the city.
The fan favorites and familiar voices of Duke Keith and Michael Balogun will be calling the game from the booth.
Fans are also encouraged to join in at one of two Official Watch Parties this Saturday at 1 p.m. The Palomino Tavern and Cabo Joe’s will be offering fans food and drink specials during the match, providing El Paso two locations to come together and cheer on the Locos.
“KVIA-TV is honored to broadcast the Locomotive Western Conference final from Salt Lake City on the El Paso – Las Cruces CW. The first-year team’s success is nothing short of phenomenal. El Paso is one of only four teams remaining in the 36-team United Soccer League. We wish the Locomotive all the best in their quest for a championship,” commented Kevin Lovell, KVIA-TV General Manager.
Locomotive and Real Monarchs have met twice in the regular season, with both matches ending in hard-fought 0-0 draws. This Saturday, at 1 p.m. MT, they face off again in the Western Conference Final.
Only one team can move on to the USL Championship final on November 17th, where the West and East battle for the trophy.
