  1. Chicago Fire will be covering all the Fire games so we will get to see the game on the 25th. Not sure about the other games but hopefully they will follow suite like TFC.

  2. Thanks, Ted. Confirmation here. Article only references Fire matches being streamed, so clear your Saturday schedule in case the other matches aren't.
