Soccer Night in America

Soccer Night in America (also known as MLS Saturday/MLS on Fox Soccer) was a weekly presentation of Major League Soccer games on FOX Soccer that began in 2003. In 2007, MLS Saturday started showing a 30-minute pregame and a 30-minute postgame show for each game. From 2005 to 2011, FOX Soccer showed 25 to 30 live games each season, plus 2 to 3 playoff games.

In 2011, MLS on Fox Soccer was rebranded as Soccer Night in America, with its production revamped to provide a viewing experience similar to NFL on Fox.[1] However, Fox was outbid by NBC Sports Network for its MLS package for the 2012-2014 seasons.[2]

In 2015, Soccer Night in America was again rebranded as MLS Soccer Sunday due to a new deal between Fox and ESPN, with games on Fox Sports 1 airing from 7-9pm ET.

List of current Major League Soccer broadcasters

The following is a list of current (entering the 2019 season) Major League Soccer broadcasters for each individual team.

Major League Soccer on television

Major League Soccer has been broadcast live in the U.S. nationally since the league's inception in 1996 and in Canada since 2007. In the United States the game is broadcast in English on ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and Fox, in Spanish on Univision Networks. In Canada, MLS is broadcast on TSN in English and TVA Sports in French.

Games not televised nationally are aired by regional sports networks or local broadcast television stations. Teams may also have a contract with a local radio broadcaster to air their games. Some teams air games exclusively in Spanish on radio, others have English only or an English and Spanish radio broadcaster.
