Fans hoping to get more behind-the-scenes looks at MLS players in their preparations for matches and a glimpse into their everyday lives are in luck.
Chris Wondolowski and Fredy Montero will be the first two MLS players featured in MLS 36, NBC Sports Network's behind-the-scenes look at MLS players over the course of a 36-hour span. MLS' integration to the NBCSN series is the latest in the line of sports joining boxing, IndyCar and the NHL.
Wondolowski's episode will air on Sunday at 9:30 p.m. after the broadcast of the Portland Timbers-FC Dallas game. NBC's cameras followed Wondolowski in Philadelphia in the build-up to the MLS All-Star Game, which will be the focus of his episode.
Montero's episode will air on Friday, Aug. 10, at 10 p.m., following the New York Red Bulls-Houston Dynamo broadcast, and it will be centered on the 36 hours in the run-up to Seattle's World Football Challenge match against Chelsea — a game in which Montero scored two goals.
More players and episodes will be announced and shown as the season continues to unfold.
