The anticipated title match in the U.S. Open Cup will be covered thoroughly by CBS Sports, with the network offering details of their in-depth coverage for the clash between Lionel Messi's Inter Miami and the Houston Dynamo, led by Héctor Herrera.
The network that has established itself as the English-language home of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final, will keep fans informed of all things surrounding the match with on-site studio coverage, which will be availabel on CBS Sports Network and also via Paramount+ on September 27.
For this game, the network has planned a live 90-minute pre-match preview right from the field of DRV PNK Stadium. The clash is expected to kick off at exactly 8:30 p.m. ET, with Inter Miami trying to win their second title since Messi's arrival and Houston trying to replicate their win from 2018.
Studio coverage for this game will be handled by CBS Sports Network's all-star cast, including Kate Abdo, Micah Richards, and former USMNT stars Clint Dempsey and Charlie Davies. Sussanah Collins and Nico Cantor will provide pitchside reports, and play-by-play action and commentary will be supplied by Andrés Cordero and match analyst Ray Hudson. To top it all, Christina Unkel will add depth as rules analyst for the network.
The network will also feature the second-screen "Star Cam" experience, which will focus on Lionel Messi's antics during the game. This feature will be included in Paramount+'s broadcast of the clash. Once the title has been handed out, the team of analysts led by Kate Abdo will return to the set for a 60-minute post-match show.
Once the game comes to a close, CBS Sports Golazo Network will air the second episode of their show KICKIN' IT, which will feature the second part of an interview with the legendary Thierry Henry.
