MLS Season Pass has a major plus in the sense that it is available in all countries. Or, at least, that’s how Apple is advertising it when they say, “MLS Season Pass is now available worldwide on the Apple TV app.”
However, that is not necessarily the case.
Yes, Apple and MLS joined to make it so that millions around the world have access to the league on streaming. MLS Season Pass is available in over 100 nations, which is still impressive for one service broadcasting one league.
First, if you want to see what countries MLS Season Pass is available in, scroll down to the bottom of the page for the full list.
Major nations missing out
When MLS Season Pass was first announced, MLS Commissioner Don Garber made a point of mentioning how the league could take advantage of MLS Season Pass. His example was that if you signed a player from a specific country, Garber said, “We have the ability to have a two-way relationship with fans in those markets.” So MLS could create content to help promote the league in that country.
That’s fine if MLS Season Pass is available in that country. However, if MLS signs a major player from Uruguay, Croatia, Nigeria, Turkey or China, MLS Season Pass isn’t available in any of those countries. Those are just a small number of the major countries without MLS Season Pass.
Also, when traveling, there is potential you may not be able to stream MLS Season Pass if you’re in those countries.
