Major League Soccer: Preview, news, and broadcast info for Weeks 12 and 13

May 11, 2023 By Oscar Rojas
Things will get quite busy for all teams in the next seven days with two matches for each club and a season that is picking pace.

Things are getting pretty interesting in the 2023 MLS season, and this week will give fans a chance to see their favorite teams taking the pitch twice as a midweek batch of games will be played on Wednesday, May 17.

Last week's games witnessed the end of the unbeaten run by LAFC, who lost their first match of the season at the hands of the San Jose Earthquakes. Now, the entire landscape of both conferences could shift with the next games for each club, but both New England and Seattle Sounders will be keen on keeping their spots as the leaders for each pack.

Without further ado, here's what you should keep in mind before Matchweek nine kicks off.

How to watch Week 12 in the 2023 MLS season?

Fans in the U.S. and Canada will be able to watch select games on regular TV networks. The first one of those will be the "civil war", New York RB vs New York City FC, with the away team closing in on the top spots of the conference and the Red Bulls desperate to leave the bottom of the standings. Later on Saturday, fans will also get to watch Portland vs Vancouver, a couple of teams that are separated by just two points in the Western Conference. Last, but not least, Los Angeles Galaxy vs SJ Earthquakes will mark the end of this weekend's clashes in style. The rest of the fixtures for the weekend will be available to be streamed in over 100 countries via MLS Season Pass

Here is the full list of games for this weekend.

Nashville agree contract termination of club's record-breaking signing Ake Loba

It is not usual to see one of MLS' teams backing up on a move made to sign one of their players,but this time Nashville SC realized that their investment on Ake Loba did not go as planned. With that in mind, the former Monterrey player agreed to be released from the club to seek for pastures new.

Loba, who was out on loan with Liga MX's Mazatlán since January, failed to live up to the hype created by his arrival. Nashville paid Monterrey over $6M for his services, and after just two goals in 40 games, the Ivory Coast footballer will no longer occupy a Designated Player spot.

Chicago Fire exec speaks of reasons that led to Ezra Hendrickson's sacking

It has been a season of ups and downs for the Chicago Fire, which eventually caused the dismissal of Ezra Hendrickson as their coach. As surprising as this may be, the coach's exit was met with mixed reactions, which prompted Fire exec Georg Heitz to step up and reveal more reasons for Hendrickson's departure.

A season can slip away quickly and we really thought that we had to change now. We were hopeful and we thought that the philosophies would be aligned. And I think in the past few months… we realized that the philosophies were not aligned anymore," the team's sporting director stated.
