The MLS TV schedule for the 2020 season was supposed to feature the most expansive network coverage in league history. An all-time high 46 network broadcast windows were to be featured across ABC, FOX, Univision and UniMás. In the U.S., the nationally broadcast matches would have been available in both English and Spanish-language through ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes as well as FOX, FS1 and FOX Deportes. Matches were also supposed to air in Spanish on Univision, UniMás, and TUDN.
ESPN celebrated MLS’s landmark 25th season with what was supposed to be a total of 31 matches, including 10 on ABC television for this year’s MLS TV schedule.
Kicking off their 2020 season coverage in primetime, FOX Sports network brought fans Nashville SC’s inaugural match on FOX, February 29, as they faced Atlanta United in front of a home crowd at Nissan Stadium.
Univision coverage of the MLS 25th season was scheduled to feature 32 games air across Univision and UniMás, the most in league history, with all games simulcast on TUDN. In 2020’s MLS TV schedule, fourteen games were going to be aired on Univision network including Chicago Fire FC’s return to Soldier Field. Eighteen games were supposed to air on UniMás in 2020, highlighted by seven consecutive Saturday night MLS doubleheaders from May 30 through July 11. Unfortunately, that never happened.
And then in March 2020, it all came to an end.
Major League Soccer will attempt to restart the league by hosting a cup tournament in Orlando running from July 8 to August 11. All 54 matches will air on MLS partner networks. Broadcasts will feature experimental technologies, including interactive fan elements and unprecedented access to players and coaches, to create a unique experience for viewers.
