The Fire will broadcast games locally on My50 once again this season. Dan Kelly and Kevin Egan will return to the broadcast booth and they'll have a sideline reporter this year in Brooke Weisbrod. Another new feature to the telecasts will be what is being described as a "Fire branded broadcast desk that can be used at different locations around Toyota Park." This will be similar to the satellite desk that CSN uses for Blackhawks and Bulls games at the United Center.
The team is looking to add new features to the telecasts and be more visible in local sports media this season.
First round draft choice Marco Franco has officially signed a contract with the club. This gives the Fire a total of 27 signed players in camp. Out of the 30 potential candidates for roster spots that leaves only Parker Walsh, Thomas Piermayr, and Grant Ward as unsigned potential players.
