MLS and Apple Announce 10-Year Streaming Deal – Boston News, Weather, Sports

(CNN) — Major League Soccer (MLS) has announced a 10-year deal with Apple to stream every US Premier League men’s game worldwide on what is being described as a “historic” day for the league.

Beginning in 2023, the deal will allow viewers to watch every MLS, Leagues Cup, MLS NEXT Pro and MLS NEXT game through the men’s professional soccer league streaming platform, which will be available through Apple TV.

Neither MLS nor tech giant Apple have disclosed the value of the deal when asked by CNN.

“Today is a historic day for our league and our sport,” MLS commissioner Don Garber said at a news conference, describing the agreement as a “first of its kind” partnership.

Apple TV subscribers can stream a limited number of the games at no additional cost, while MLS season ticket holders have free access to the league’s streaming service, a statement announcing the deal said.

MLS adapts the service to its international audience by producing all games in English and Spanish.

Matches involving Canadian teams can also be viewed with French coverage. Plans to produce all coverage in Portuguese are also in the works, the statement added.

The new service will impact the league’s schedule, with midweek games taking place on Wednesday nights and weekend games taking place on Saturday nights to create predictability for fans, MLS Deputy Commissioner and President Gary Stevenson said in the statement.

“For the first time in the history of sports, fans can access everything from a major professional sports league in one place,” Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of services, said in a statement. “It’s a dream come true for MLS fans, football fans and anyone who loves sports.”
