Along with the full schedule, Major League Soccer’s given us the lowdown on which games will be on national television. Us being part of the NBC Sports Group, we thought we’d take a moment to highlight what NBC and NBC Sports Network have in store for 2013.

This season, NBC will have another 41 regular season games (three NBC, 38 NBCSN) brought to you by the same team: Arlo White will be back as the play-by-play man; Kyle Martino will be between the benches; while Ross Thaler will return as your host.

The broadcast season begins opening night on NBCSN with a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference final – Houston Dynamo hosting D.C. United on March 2.

The first NBC broadcast will kickoff Rivalry Week when the New York Red Bulls welcome D.C. United to Red Bull Arena on March 16, the first three MLS matches the NBC network will broadcast that Saturday. Sporting KC-Chicago and Seattle-Portland follow on NBCSN.

The entire NBC/NBCSN schedule is attached, though you may want to bookmark this page. That gives you all the details.
