What Hope Is There To End Pirated Soccer Streams When Even Soccer Players Are Watching Them?

What hope is there to end pirated soccer Internet streams when even soccer players are doing it?

Above and below are screenshots of US international Alejandro Bedoya’s desktop yesterday where he was watching three separate UEFA Champions League games including one illegal stream of FOX Soccer’s broadcast of Manchester City against Borussia Dortmund.

Alejandro Bedoya’s Facebook status update on his personal account read, “Just another lonely weeknight… Champions League.”

It makes you wonder how many other soccer players watch illegal streams of professional soccer, and whether the practice is so commonplace that few people think twice about it.

The New Jersey born attacking midfielder currently plays his football at Helsingborgs IF in Sweden. The former Glasgow Rangers footballer should see some action today when his Helsingborg side plays FC Twente in the Europa League.
