Guides on How to Watch Soccer in the United States
Here in the United States, soccer fans have a lot of options when it comes to watching the beautiful game.
In addition to the sport rapidly growing domestically, the general fandom of the sport is on the rise. Now, millions of Americans watch European soccer each weekend. That comes from content hailing from England, Spain, Germany and Italy, just to name a few. The multitude of clubs, leagues and tournaments at our disposal is something to behold.
Yet, it does raise a couple of concerns. Or, at least, challenges.
Media rights are valuable. Ad dollars bring big money to the channels and providers that broadcast soccer. With the development of the sport’s popularity, more and more channels and providers want a piece of the pie.
In the past, it was somewhat simple. The Premier League aired on NBC’s or FOX’s channels, beIN SPORTS held the rights to LaLiga. Sure, we got less games on average, but you could comfortably know where the games would be.
Now, it is not so simple. Part of that comes from the development of streaming. The biggest con is that leagues are spread out and can be on linear TV or solely streaming. On the bright side, fans do have access to every game in most major leagues across the world. It just requires more subscriptions, which is frustrating.
Soccer TV Guides
To qualm those frustrations, World Soccer Talk assembled a thorough breakdown of how to watch some of the most popular leagues throughout the world. Keep in mind, that this only applies to viewers in the United States. Different countries have their own providers and channels for the major leagues and competitions throughout the world.
These guides do much more than tell you what channel carries LaLiga, for instance. It breaks down the general formatting for timing of each weekend’s matchdays. Also, it lays out related cup competitions for each league and how that may influence the league. Finally, it provides links to the schedule. From there, you can see the actual times and dates for games in the upcoming calendar.
More than leagues
The following guides do more than just lay out leagues that you can watch. There are also guides for those interested in cord-cutting, learning more about soccer and finding supporters guides in the United States. Finally, there is the ultimate streaming and TV eBook.
