NBC wants Arlo here stateside, being the voice of MLS. Unless he is doing games from a studio, like they've done for the Olympics, but those are terrible.
Well the SI story said they were in talks with British Broadcaster BT to produce the games so they could be going with original productions for the marquee matches. But I would think they hire UK based announcers. Hopefully they use some of the ITV announcers since ITV doesn't have Premier League rights over there.
