MLS signs up ESPN, Fox Sports 1 for 2015-22

Major League Soccer (MLS) has signed an 8-year contract with ESPN and Fox Sports, plus Spanish-language broadcaster Univision, for its television rights from 2015-22. Each network will televise 34 regular-season games and six playoff games per years, with Spanish-language ESPN Deportes simulcasting the ESPN matches with its own Spanish announcers.
Sundays will be the prime day of the week, featuring an ESPN2 match at 5 p.m. and a Fox Sports 1 match at 7 p.m. Fox broadcast, as well as ESPN will also show select matches.
The two cable networks will alternate two of the league’s showcase events: in one year, one network will show the MLS All-Star Game and the other will show the MLS Cup, and the networks switch places the following year.
The big addition for fans is bringing over 200 out-of-market MLS games exclusively to web-based ESPN3, which most people have through their authenticated cable services. These matches will not include the games televised by Fox and Univision.
ESPN and Fox Sports will divide games played by the U.S. men’s and women’s national teams.
The matches televised by Fox will be available via FoxSports.com and the Fox Sports GO app.
