The game, originally scheduled to begin at 1:30 pm PT following the day’s final World Cup quarterfinal match on Fox, was shifted because of extreme heat forecast for Los Angeles this weekend. Projections are that the temperature will be 100 in LA on Saturday afternoon, and after a day game earlier this season against FC Dallas in which the temperature was in the 90s led to complaints from LAFC and fans in the stands, it was sensible to shift this game’s kickoff, with some temps in the region expected to exceed 110 degrees.
Instead of airing on Fox, the game will now air on FS1, both in the LA region and nationally.
