Univision is giving fans what they want: more soccer.
The broadcast company annouced Wednesday that it will broadcast an additional 23 MLS regular-season matches on its new sports network, Univision Deportes Network (UDN). The MLS games on UDN will begin Saturday at 6 pm ET, when the Colorado Rapids host the Philadelphia Union in their 2013 season opener at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
UDN's schedule comes in addition to sister network UniMás' broadcast of 26 MLS regular-season games, for a total of 49 nationally televised MLS games on the Univision family of networks.

In addition to the MLS regular-season games, the Univision Deportes broadcast package also includes extensive Spanish-language coverage of the MLS All-Star Game and MLS Cup 2013, and live streaming of select games on Univision's digital network UVideos.
The UDN's broadcast will not affect blackout restrictions on MLS Live.
