Larry Tiscornia

Media Production and Operations Consultant

Larry Tiscornia spent the past 21 years at Major League Soccer as vice president of broadcasting. During this time of tremendous growth for MLS and the sport of soccer in North America, he had the privilege to handle many incredible responsibilities.

Tiscornia oversaw the league's entire broadcast infrastructure for its live remote match productions and broadcast operation workflows that distributed the leagues content globally on a daily basis.

In this role, Tiscornia was the primary production contact for all the leagues rights holders from ESPN, NBC Sports, Fox Sports, and Univision in the United States to TSN, TVA Sports, IMG, Sky Sports, beIN Sports, and more throughout the world. He ensured that MLS's 1000+ broadcast productions yearly were presented in the most professional manner to its constantly growing audience.

Operationally, under Tiscornia's leadership, the league installed a league-wide data and video fiber network that connects all 26 MLS venues with the league office in New York City and their production facility in South Florida (Vista Worldlink); created and implemented the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) where MLS was at the forefront of the initiative that has become standard in the sport; digitized the league video archives, moving from tape based to cloud based workflows; and developed and implemented broadcast standards for all current and future MLS venues throughout North America (25+ venues).        

On the event side, Tiscornia has overseen the broadcast operations and productions for many significant soccer events in the United States since 2000, including 20 MLS Cups and 20 MLS All Star games, the National Soccer Hall of Fame game, MLS SuperDrafts, the US National team World Cup qualifiers, FC Barcelona US Tours, The MLS Gala Awards, and the Supporters Summit events. In 2019, he oversaw the creation of the plan, budget, and implementation for the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup, which for the first time in its 100 plus year history was broadcast and available on ESPN and ESPN plus (83 matches).
