Cost, how to watch games in the UK & US

MLS’s perpetual battle for international relevance was undoubtedly aided by the thrilling conclusion to the 2022 season. Los Angeles FC’s penalty shootout triumph over Philadelphia Union in the MLS Cup final was nothing short of an all-time classic.

Attempting to build off the momentum gathered from the 2022 campaign, MLS signed a mammoth ten-year deal with Apple that’ll see every MLS game streamed live on Apple TV.

It’s an agreement that could catapult the division’s popularity into a new realm given the broadcasting promises that have been laid out.

For the upcoming campaign, Apple is offering a season pass which will allow fans to watch every single MLS 2023 contest live. For the first time in seemingly forever, MLS is all in one place and that can only be a good thing.

The MLS Season Pass costs $14.99 per month during the season or $99 for the entire campaign. However, Apple TV+ subscribers can sign up at a special price of $12.99 per month and $79 per season.

Plenty of games will be available in front of the paywall, though, including every game on opening weekend as well as six matches per week.

MLS returns on 25 February with a full complement of fixtures. As we noted, all of these games are available to watch on the Apple TV app for free, and fans will be able to enjoy a couple of mouth-watering encounters to kick-off 2023.

Here are all of the opening weekend fixtures:
