It's almost that time of year again: The start of Major League Soccer (MLS) kicks off this weekend. And whether you've been a soccer fan since the glory days of David Beckham (or longer) or you caught the soccer fan bug during the 2022 FIFA World Cup and want to see what North American soccer is all about, you're likely wondering one thing, especially if you don't have cable: How to watch every MLS match online.
North American teams have brought us some of our favorite soccer players, like Frank Lampard, Landon Donovan, Steven Gerrard and David Villa. World-renowned soccer star and former LA Galaxy midfielder Beckham now owns MLS team Inter Miami. With all the excitement previous years have brought, we can barely wait for the 28th MLS season, all of which can be viewed on Apple TV+ — the exclusive streamer of the matches this year.
Sign Up for Apple TV+
Call it soccer, futbol or football, but however you slice it, Apple TV+ is the best way to catch every moment of every match. Here's how to gear up before players take the field for the 2023 season of MLS.
The 2023 season begins Saturday, February 25 with a match between Nashville SC and New York City FC, followed by 12 more matches to kick off the season. If heading to the stadium to cheer on your team isn't in the cards, we can help you with the next best thing: Live streaming access to every single soccer game — that means absolutely no blackouts.
While a few select games will be aired on live TV via Fox Sports, the simplest way to get access to watching these talented soccer players on the field is with the MLS Season Pass through Apple TV+. They're streaming all the games live, including the MLS cup playoff matches and the United States championship match itself.MLS Season Pass on Apple TV+

Apple TV+ is now your source of all things MLS as they enter a 10-year deal to exclusively stream the soccer games. In addition to getting to watch MLS live, you'll get access to the championship MLS Cup when you sign up for the service.
FOR MLS SEASON PASS
The MLS Season Pass is an extra add-on service for Apple TV+. That means that current Apple TV+ subscribers can access MLS games for an additional $13 per month for a total $20 monthly cost. Fans also have the option to pay a $79 annual fee for the season pass. New subscribers can enjoy a 7-day free trial upon signup and join the club that offers not only MLS soccer games but also a host of content, including the soccer-centric comedy Ted Lasso, written by and starring Jason Sudeikis.
If you're only interested in the MLS Season Pass (sorry, Sudeikis), you can go straight to the source to stream soccer games for $15 per month or a flat fee of $99.
Get the MLS Season Pass
For soccer fans on a budget, here's some good news: Each Sunday, Apple TV+ will choose six games to stream for free. All you need is an Apple ID, which iPhone users likely already have. No Apple ID? No problem: Apple ID sign-up is free, and grants you access to Sunday night's free-streaming games during the soccer season.
