Fans make soccer so special. It gives all of us something to rally behind, hopefully in good spirits. Even then, losses are part of the game. They make wins more special.
Across the world, there are certain clubs that stand out in terms of fan bases. Oftentimes, these clubs have a longstanding history of success. They develop a global brand, and it just becomes a snowball effect.
If you are a fan of a major European club, but you live in the United States, it can be hard to keep track of when and where all of the games are. The development of streaming services requires potential circumstances when you need three different streaming services plus a TV subscription to watch all of a certain team’s games.
Take a club in the English Premier League, for example. League games air on both linear TV channels and exclusively on Peacock, depending on the schedule. Then, domestic cup games are on ESPN+. Finally, any games in the UEFA Champions League, Europa League or Conference League are exclusively on Paramount+. It can stack up. That applies to both financial means and just overall subscriber exhaustion from so many platforms required.
For clubs in Spain, Germany and Italy, you do not need so many subscriptions. However, the same principle still applies. With each of these clubs playing in at least three competitions each year, it helps to know what is coming up next.
There is a chance Bayern Munich plays Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, Champions League knockout stages and German Cup within a quick time frame. Of course, those competitions have different significances, so it never hurts to know what they are playing for.
Team Pages on World Soccer Talk
The links below lead to customized team pages for some of the most popular clubs in the United States. As you can see the vast majority of these are European clubs. However, it is important to include that Liga MX is the most-watched league in the United States. Therefore, we included a few of the league’s most popular sides.
Each page has a brief background on the club. It discusses who the most popular or important players are in its history, as well as the club’s relative success over the years.
In addition to the schedule, there is also information on what channels or providers you can watch the club. It is one thing to see that the upcoming Barcelona game is on ESPN+, but there are chances the game airs on ESPN or ABC. Fear not, the pages break down all the potential options you have for watching your club.
Also, be sure to check out some of the featured stories and news appearing about each club on the World Soccer Talk website.
