The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC is partnering with XTRA Sports 1300/KCSF-AM to broadcast every Switchbacks game in 2021. The team is a member of the USL Championship, the second tier of the American soccer pyramid.
Ryan Kaufman, PD and host of Drive Time Sports, will handle the-play-by play for Switchbacks games on XTRA Sports 1300. He has been handling TV play-by-play for home games since 2018.
“We’ve always enjoyed our Switchbacks partnership, but taking it to the play-by-play level is something very special. This is truly that something extra for XTRA Sports 1300,” said Scott Jones, VP/MM, Cumulus Colorado Springs. “I’m very excited for Ryan. He’ll do a great job calling the games. We’re thrilled with this opportunity!”
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with XTRA Sports 1300 and Cumulus Media to be able to bring Colorado Springs a top notch radio broadcast production to keep all the fans engaged and updated live for all our home and away games this season and beyond,” said James Ragain, VP, Switchbacks.
