Chivas USA to Televise Rest of 2014 Games on Santa Ana’s KDOC

So the Chivas USA to Santa Ana saga continues. Chivas USA have a “home,” if you will in Santa Ana, albeit on the KDOC TV network, which is headquartered on Grand street.

The club televised a portion of their games on KDOC last season, and they’ve renewed this season, which leaves us wondering if they’ll be back on KDOC next season under an expected new ownership group and brand. Signs point to Chivas USA being re-branded as either Los Angeles Football Club or Los Angeles Soccer Club, as Major League Soccer acquired the rights to these trademarks and registered them with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Chivas USA, in some form, did come to Santa Ana after all, only not complete with a stadium and complex for their youth academy. At least Santa Ana had some role to play in support of the club prior to its re-branding, with regard to their local tv deal. And Santa Ana may remain synonymous with the club going forward with a new start in 2015.
