Fans of Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC will have another way to follow the United Soccer League squad’s home games next season.

The club announced FOX21 and SOCO CW will broadcast the team’s 17 home league games next season in a release Tuesday morning.

"The Switchbacks are extremely excited to partner with FOX21 & SOCO CW to be bringing the Colorado Springs, surrounding communities and it's partners great professional soccer through TV and in-person," said Switchbacks Executive VP James Ragain in the release. "This is a great step for Colorado Springs in that a deal like this has never been done for professional sports in Colorado Springs."

FOX21 and SOCO CW vice president Steve Dant said the CW affiliate will carry most Switchbacks games in the release.

The Switchbacks are slated to start their fourth USL season the weekend of March 16, 2018. The club finished in the top three in the Western Conference each of its first two seasons but failed to qualify for the 2017 playoffs.
