The Capitals kick off their home season on Sunday night May 3 at 6 PM at Wenatchee Valley Community College against defending EPLWA champions the Spokane Shadow.
“Hosting WFC matches on KORE-LP gives us a chance to add to the overall community oriented nature of our broadcasting mission,” says station General Manager Kelly Hart. “Our goal is to bring programs and events to the local audience that might not get a chance to be aired over commercial, chain driven broadcast stations in the market. WFC is a home-grown team with local followers. Soccer is an exciting sport and KORE-LP is excited to be the local broadcast outlet for WFC in 2015 and beyond.”
Wenatchee FC Co-Founder Javier Reyna says the Capitals are eager to work with KORE-LP. “We are extremely happy to be able to have this opportunity. Wenatchee FC is working hard on reaching everyone in the valley, so last year we decided to do a live video and audio streaming on most of our home games with the help of Sebastian Moraga. We got nice feedback about it so this partnership with KORE-LP will give us a more professional and secure way to reach a larger audience.”
Sebastian Moraga will return as the voice of WFC. “I’m really excited. Being backed by a radio station is going to add a little more weight to the broadcast, it’s going to improve the listeners’ experience, and hopefully, it will help more people in the Valley discover what a great team they have and how much fun this league is,” he says.
Moraga says the collaborations began with local connections and that the team has already been in the studio. “Credit goes to Nevonne McDaniels from the Wenatchee Business Journal who alerted me to this new radio station, to Kelly Hart from KORE-LP, and Javier Reyna from the team,who have been nothing but supportive about this idea. Recently we had our first interview with Kelly, Coach Ceppi and with one of our team’s Brazilian players and it was beautiful! Four people talking soccer in three languages! I look forward to introducing more of our newcomers and our veterans to the listeners of KORE-LP, not just during games but in the days prior, as well.”
