Tonight's Game is Now on ESPN2 at 9:30 p.m. ET

ESPN has confirmed that tonight's broadcast has moved from ESPN to ESPN2 and will include a 30 minute pre-game show from Bristol that gets underway at 9:30 p.m. ET. Kickoff is set for 10:06 p.m. ET (8:06 p.m. local).

The change comes due to the Women's College (softball) World Series ending early (last night), and will prevent conflicts with Wednesday Night Baseball on ESPN from running into the time slot of the U.S.-Costa Rica qualifier.

The match will also be live on Galavision, and fans can follow along on ussoccer.com's MatchTracker.

So:
USA at Costa Rica
Live on ESPN2 & Galavision
ESPN2 Coverage Starts at 9:30 p.m. ET
Galavision Coverage Starts at 10 p.m. ET

Thanks so much for the update! It was a little confusing looking at the cable guide and then hearing from you about which channel it will be on! Now I won't miss a minute of it!
Good luck guys!!!

I understand the change and will appreciate not having the broadcast "run-into", but it seems US Soccer is always getting the last minute bump/indecision by ESPN. I dream of a day when soccer is the priority.

Thank Goodness! I am so sick of unimportant Baseball and Basketball games getting in the way of World Cup Qualifying. ESPN has no real interest in soccer, and they show it with scheduling and sportscenter comments every month. They would rather watch women's softball than a quality soccer match. FSC from now on please!

ESPN does have an interest in soccer, compare today to ten years ago...HUGE DIFFERENCE!

No its not baseball or basketball coverage BUT get over it already and enjoy the game tonight.

Soccer is making its mark in the U.S. I can't wait until MNT games are broadcast on CBS, NBC and the major networks. Make it easier for kids to be exposed to quality soccer.
