Washington D.C., March 9 -

ESPN has named Adrian Healey, a play-by-play commentator from the network’s 2010 FIFA World Cup coverage team, as its primary voice for Major League Soccer telecasts beginning this season. Healey will pair with former U.S. men’s captain and D.C. United captain match analyst John Harkes in the booth.
 
Healey, who hails from Swindon, England, will make his debut in the 2011 Major League Soccer season-opener – Los Angeles Galaxy at Seattle Sounders FC – Tuesday, March 15, on ESPN.

Healey joined ESPN in 2003 as a play-by-play commentator for ESPN International’s coverage of several European leagues, including UEFA Champions League.
 
Alexi Lalas returns as analyst on ESPN’s MLS studio coverage, while former Fox Soccer Channel studio host Max Bretos, returns as studio host and play-by-play commentator for select matches. Rob Stone will continue to host MLS events and serve as a reporter and former Revolution striker Taylor Twellman will also serve as match and studio analyst.
